Natural beauty value of coastal areas in the Falkland Islands

The dataset (polygon shape file) describes the coastal areas assessed by local inhabitants of the Falkland Islands in terms of cultural values (recreational, sense of place, historical, natural beauty). The values are based on interviews with 50 people who were asked to draw on a map which areas of the coast were important to them for natural beauty value. This dataset should be used in conjunction to the other three datasets depicting the cultural values of the coastline of the Falkland Islands.

Lineage A 1km buffer area was created from the coastline of the Falkands. Fifty people were interviewed and were asked to draw on a map which areas of the coast were important for natural beauty value. The buffer was split accordingly the answers and each area was scored from 1 to 3. The dataset shows the final natural beauty value of the coastal area obtained by adding all the maps from the interviewees. Overlapping areas (multiple maps from interviewees) show the total of all the values of each overlapping buffer.
