Long description: MAGIC is a web-based interactive map to bringing together information on key environmental schemes and designations in one place. MAGIC is a partnership project involving seven government organisations who have responsibilities for rural policy-making and management, and although it has been designed to meet the needs of the partner organisations, the facility is available to anyone over the Internet. MAGIC makes use of standard GIS tools to allow people to view and query the available data. Users do not require specialist software and can access maps using a standard web browser. MAGIC also provides links to other sources in order to make best use of the wide range of information available on different websites and Internet portals. The MAGIC project is led by the Defra's Geographic Information Unit and involves the Countryside Agency, English Nature, English Heritage, the Environment Agency and the Forestry Commission, as well as Defra and the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister(ODPM).
