7. The Memory Map of Cuilcagh to Cleenish has been launched. With over ninety locations to explore, the online interactive map brings to life the area’s rich natural, cultural, historical, built and archaeological heritage. With the click of a button or scroll on the screen you can zoom in to markers on the landscape to open pop-up boxes containing information, photographs, old and new films, 3D models, voice recordings and music by local performers. With nearly seventy specially produced short films and sound recordings we hope that the memory map will provide many hours of listening and viewing pleasure for you over the winter months. The Memory Map can be viewed on PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile phones when out and about. The map can be viewed online at http://c2c.org.uk/C2Cindex.html
