The National Heritage List for England (NHLE) contains details of over 400,000 listed buildings, scheduled monuments and other national heritage protection designations.
It is published by Historic England (on behalf of the UK Government Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport) and is the most used resource on Historic England’s website, behind this is a complex database and GIS that is being updated every working day.
Martin is responsible for the information published on the NHLE and manages the team responsible for curating the underlying data. This presentation will look at issues with interest outside the heritage sector including the problems encountered in moving from a paper-based system to digital, data migration, data cleaning, regulatory compliance, third party copyrighted material in database records, database rights and licensing.
