The HFL recording app is a simple to use online recording app used to record sites for the Home Front Legacy project.
Your first mission is to use the HFL apps' mapping layer to locate where you are.
Explore the mapping layer of the HFL recording app and have a go navigating and zooming in.
You can use the Binoculars button to search for your City, Town, or Village using a place name or postcode, or use the Arrow button to quickly locate yourself.
Try to find your house, school or other place you know well.
When you are confident navigating the mapping layer you can move on to your next mission!
Archaeologists use aerial photographs to investigate sites from the air. Aerial photographs can reveal earthworks, such as trenches, which may be missed while looking on the ground.
The HFL app features aerial photographs that you can use to explore.
Click on the Cog icon to access the apps' settings. Choose either the Bing Maps or Google Maps mapping layer to view aerial photographs.
Investigate these sites using aerial photographs. Copy and paste these grid references into the Binoculars button search function to have a look:
