Farmers test Defra’s map view service

First published in Farming

THE Rural Payments Agency (RPA) is giving 1,000 farmers and agents the chance to test a new online service which allows them to view their land details on a digital map.

The Rural Land Register (RLR) map viewer is a forerunner to the online service to be launched by Defra in 2014/15 for payment schemes under the new CAP.

The viewer currently on test offers instant access to the most up to date maps of the customer’s land holdings along with Ordnance Survey mapping and aerial photography.

Users will also be able to search for fields and map sheets, to draw lines and measure areas as well as print maps to support land change requests.
