Learn how OS data and technologies from Esri and Europa, are combining to support Covid-19 related initiatives.
Esri and City of London - Many local authorities, especially in urban areas, have recently been reviewing pavement width to ensure that social distancing can be achieved. Where this is not possible, they are considering closing roads, reducing road speed limits or in some cases widening footpaths. Fast-tracked statutory guidance, published on 9th May and effective immediately, also tells councils to reallocate road space for significantly-increased numbers of cyclists and pedestrians. Halil from City of London Corporation explains the GIS analysis that he has recently done to assess pavement width using Ordnance Survey data.
Europa - For those in the fight against COVID-19, Europa Technologies is providing easy access to quality mapping for Great Britain and beyond!
