The ArkDB is now CLOSED

With apologies to anyone who still relies on the ArkDB data system or map-drawing tools, we've had to take the difficult decision to shut down the ArkDB system. We've not been funded to maintain it for many years now and have kept it in the air as best we could with the time that we had available but recent changes in personnel and continuing updates to the underpinning libraries mean that the effort required to keep it going outweighs the perceived benefits.

If you feel that this is the wrong decision, please contact us to let us know and we'll see what we can do together
