Berkshire Floods 2007
Your flood map feedback
Did you use BBC Berkshire's interactive flood map? If you did, we'd like to know what you think about it. What worked, what didn't, and what would you like to see on a map in future?
With the River Thames on flood warning and flash flooding over the weekend across the county, BBC Berkshire produced an interactive flood map to document the event as it developed.
The map showed flood warnings from the Environment Agency, locations of emergency centres, photos and video from members of the public, plus audio reports and video footage from the BBC's own reporters in Berkshire.
More than 100 photos, 30 videos and 40 BBC reports were displayed between Monday 23 July and Thursday 26 July 2007.
But the important question is: did it work?
If you used the map, please tell us why you used it, what you liked, and what you didn't like. If you have comments, suggestions for improvements, or criticisms, we would love to hear them.
What else could we offer? Have your say.
We are keen to develop the map for future uses - there's no reason why we should only offer an interactive map when there's a natural disaster on the horizon.
So what would you like to see on a permanent BBC Berkshire interactive map? Suggestions so far include local band (and Reading Festival) information, sports reports, BBC Radio Berkshire audio, and BBC News Online reports.
Would you prefer one big map with the ability to flip between different sets of markers showing different types of information - or would you rather have a number of maps each dedicated to one type of information?
Any thoughts are welcome: use the form below to send your comments to us.
Thanks for using the map and for your feedback. Best wishes - the BBC Berkshire team.
