Contractors gain new mapping tool
The GeoInformation Group has launched a suite of new geographic information products that will help water contractors in their work, according to the company. The four geographic information products offer a “unique insight into the landscape of the UK and provides users with a reliable and valuable resource for mapping out these changes”, said GeoInformation.
"This innovative geographic information suite provides an easy tool for optimising water services, for example identifying the age of pipes feeding residential properties for leakage, supply and maintenance issues as well as building height information for assessing water pressure,” said a spokeswoman for the group.
The suite comprises:
- UKMap: A detailed and multi-layered topographic database to locate and map out key geographic features, such as buildings, 2D, land use, transportation, retail, road and trees
- UKBuildings: A comprehensive and accurate profile of residential and commercial building stock, including building age, type, footprint and height for residential and commercial properties
- UKLand: A detailed and maintained information database that identifies land use and land cover. This product group includes land use and cover, vegetation and clutter
- UKSurvey: A bespoke mapping service using high-resolution aerial imagery and ground-based information such as aerial surveys and field surveys.
