Environmental analysis

Balancing the differing and sometimes conflicting interests of different environmental stakeholders is a high priority for a range of organisations. It can also be a significant challenge.

Whether you are a local authority consulting with the public about your planning policy, an energy company scoping the impact on neighbours of wind turbines at potential development sites, or a government agency providing accurate information to landowners about walkers' rights of access to open countryside, your needs can be addressed with our geographic data.

By providing detailed mapping, height elevation models and high-resolution imagery of high-risk areas and a national address referencing framework that links disparate location-related datasets, people in your organisation have the information at their fingertips that enables them to make quick operational decisions.

Case studies

A prepared plan of action is vital for saving lives and protecting property and critical infrastructure in the event of flooding. Having accurate and reliable data is critical for the success of any plan.

Dauntsey Parish Council has successfully combined local knowledge with Ordnance Survey digital maps to help it undertake a professional analysis of local flood impacts and risks.
