Within our 12 main categories we are collecting over 50 subcategories of information. These are shown below. If you'd like to help us just click on a building on our map, choose a category of interest (if ready for upload) on our map page and fill in an information you can. Every entry will help.
Below we have given a very rough indication of how hard we think entering information is likely to be. 'Like Me?' for example is classified as 'Easy' as you just need to tick the box if you like the building. 'Age' however is classed as 'Hard', as it requires either specialist knowledge or, in this case, historical research. For more information on any of our categories click the relevant coloured box.

During 2018/19 we will be releasing our 12 categories for testing in three
stages. Firstly Location, Age, Size & Like me? Then Use, Type, Shape
& Planning, and finally Construction, Energy, Greenery & Demolitions. Subcategories marked with an asterisk* are those for which we're planning to visualise collected data over the next year.
We need to keep our collection as efficient, effective and simple as possible but if there is high demand for a relevant additional subcategory we will try to include it. You can let us know here.
