Edinburgh Cultural Map

This map displays cultural places and assets in the City of Edinburgh. Most of the data resulted from seven public cultural mapping events held in 2019, comprised largely of participants from the cultural sector. The map remains a work-in-progress as users can suggest edits and additions on the contact page.
