Part of preventing a major incident, whether man-made or environmental, is identifying high-risk sites. It is important to identify all the physical parts of our critical national infrastructure, including government buildings, sites of cultural identity or prestige sites where large numbers of people congregate, like stadiums or large office complexes.
The use of our geographic data for analysis and data sharing is vital in any disaster management. A large number of emergency services, local authorities and central government organisations rely on our data to support civil contingency planning and public safety.
Highly detailed street-level mapping, where each feature is assigned a unique reference, can provide an accurate overview of a specific area.
Our geographic data provides vital location intelligence for:
- Analysis and planning
- Identification and management of risk
- Collaborative working
- Operations and logistics
- Rapid incident response
- Contingency planning
