Wealden District Council (WDC) has selected Cadcorp’s Software as a Service (SaaS) as their current GIS and spatial analysis systems had become unsupported and needed replacing. WDC considered that for future proofing, a central spatial repository with a GIS was their best option.
The council required GIS software that was suitable for both the casual and professional user; supplemented with configurable web pages for a public facing mapping website.
WDC approached Cadcorp via the G-Cloud framework on the Digital Marketplace and contracted for supply of a corporate GIS with fully hosted web mapping and spatial database server. This option incorporates the off-the-shelf product Web Map Layers, geospatial web services engine GeognoSIS, and for the council’s more advanced desktop GIS users, Map Modeller. Training and consultancy services are also included while support and maintenance will be provided for the lifetime of the contract.
Brett Levett, ICT business manager at WDC commented: “We needed a fully supported GIS spatial database solution. Cadcorp SIS is the best suited for meeting the needs of both casual and professional users, and for customer use on the Wealden website. Being able to select Cadcorp via the G-Cloud Digital Marketplace made the transition from our legacy system a lot smoother.”
Cadcorp software is being used by numerous UK Local Government Authorities, either directly or integrated in other applications provided by Cadcorp’s technology partners. To find out more, visit the Cadcorp website or the G-Cloud Digital Marketplace.
