The province of North Holland is rich in cultural heritage. You will find a great diversity of historical landscapes and archaeological sites there, and the historical cities are home to many monuments. But the province is also very vulnerable to the effects of climate change. What does this mean for its heritage? What are the risks of climate change for heritage in North Holland? This quick scan provides an initial picture of this. 

The results of the quick scan have been processed into maps and a storymap. You can check the risk of heat, flooding, flooding and drought for different types of heritage in North Holland. A house or shop building can be heritage, but so can, for example, a castle, a dike or even an entire landscape. This is why heritage is divided into three different main shapes: points, lines and planes. On the maps, you can choose what kind of heritage to look at by choosing points, lines and/or planes in the map layers.

How did we carry out the quick scan?

We carried out the quick scan together with consultancy organisation MOOI Noord-Holland. The quick scan consisted of five steps:  

  1. Collect heritage objects in the province.
  2. Collect climate data from the Climate Impact Atlas.
  3. Run a data model to give heritage objects a risk score.
  4. Collect the results from the data model.
  5. Convert the results from geo-files into thematic risk maps. 

Two workshops with sphere diagrams

We also organised two workshops in which various experts in the fields of heritage, cultural history and archaeology contributed. We then worked with these experts to visualise the effects and consequences for heritage using sphere diagrams. We incorporated the results in our selection of thematic maps. Furthermore, in the workshops we determined the risk categories for the quick scan.
