It is part of a project being run by the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) team and Plymouth University to discover new ways of exploring landscapes, better understand how we see all of them and to discover what we particularly value.

The landscapes we visit, live and work in are constantly changing and evolving. Rate my view enables views of landscapes you experience to be rated and shared with others.

All you need to do is download the free app from iTunes or Google Play & start snapping your views!

What you need to do: when you're out & about in the South Devon AONB, snap your view, rate it, upload it & share with other explorers. You can use the app anywhere & upload views when it suits you.
