FAQ

Contributing pages:

What is a page or article?

A page in SeSco usually contains a single article about a subject, and the terms page and ''article' are used interchangeably for simplicity.

In reality, a page may contain more than one article if a subject has an extended history, or contains more than one related subject.

What makes a good Page?

Unique subjects that can be easily described, preferably with a picture attached so that the reader can quickly and easily understand the subject, especially if it is something unusual.

How do I get the latitude, longitude and grid reference for my subject? The easiest way is just to use our map page to pinpoint the location, and it will give you the map code to insert under the Map heading on the page.

For a more detailed description of how to use our embedded map, and what can be done with it, please refer to the Map 101 page.

Do you accept multiple images per page?

Of course. Many of our subjects are either lost, or in danger of being lost. As a result, we may have access to the only records of them if official organisations have failed to identify or record these subjects.

What are my legal rights when taking photographs?
