Plans for Britain's National Spatial Address Infrastructure

Plans for a new national, high-quality spatial address infrastructure building are announced by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM), Ordnance Survey and the Improvement and Development Agency (IDeA) for local government. The aim is to provide a single national database that will be maintained through a partnership approach and a collaborative framework of address and property identifiers. This will be developed and operated by Ordnance Survey in partnership with local and central government. It will build on the work already undertaken by the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG), Royal Mail and Ordnance Survey. A joint prospectus issued... (read more)

Improving Accuracy of Mobile Underground Infrastructure Locator

InfraRadar, a mobile ground-penetrating radar infrastructure locator developed and manufactured by GT Frontline, recently switched to the Spectra Precision SP80 GNSS receiver. Company president Dick van der Roest said this was done because a good position is essential for a good survey and the SP80 performs significantly better than alternative systems. The InfraRadar, integrated with the SP80, is used to map underground infrastructures, including pipes, conduits and cables, as well as archaeological or geological features, and unexploded ordinance. According to Van der Roest, a significant number of GT Frontline customers require centimetre-level accuracy at X, Y and Z, which the... (read more)

Blom Surveys Large UK Infrastructure Project

As detailed planning gets underway for Britain’s new high-speed rail network, HS2 turned to Blom to survey the UK’s largest-ever infrastructure project. With experience of working on prestigious projects, including the original Channel Tunnel Rail Link, Blom created the mapping and visualisation tools the HS2 consultants required. Utilising wide-format aerial cameras and Lidar (laser scanners) Blom captured high-resolution aerial imagery and laser data along the entire 225kms of the first phase of the proposed HS2 route to provide a complete 3D overview. The high-resolution 4cm imagery is then also used for subsequent 1:2500 topographic mapping and provides a permanent time-stamped... (read more)

Intergeo Round Table Focuses on Digital Infrastructure

Regular exhibitors, members of the Intergeo advisory board, organisers HINTE and hosts DVW recently came together at this year’s Intergeo Round Table in the German capital city, Berlin. Experts agreed that the digital infrastructures we need are not so much a technical problem as an organisational challenge. Whether it’s the energy revolution, megacities or demographic change, said the DVW’s president Karl-Friedrich Thöne, geoinformation is the key to unlocking the main challenges of the 21st century. This is because, alongside providing and processing data, there is also a need for networking - in other words, the classic land management activities, he... (read more)
