TGG Contributes to Bournemouth’s ‘Go-Green’ Initiative

July 13, 2010 -- The GeoInformation Group (TGG), a leading supplier of thermal imaging data and services, has supplied Bournemouth Borough Council with a Cities Revealed heat loss property database that is being used as part of the Council’s “Go Green” campaign.

The heat loss survey has been incorporated within Bournemouth’s “My Property” web pages to help residents find out how heat efficient their own homes are and how to reduce heating bills.

Residents can access the Council’s website at www.bournemouth.gov.uk/myproperty, where they can enter their postcode and address details to view the results of the heat loss survey. The values assigned to each property represent one of three different levels of possible heat loss including; high, moderate and low. The site then provides tips and advice on how to keep the heat in to save money and keep residents warm.

“Bournemouth's intention in publishing the data online is to stimulate interest in heat loss and to motivate residents and businesses to insulate their properties, where necessary. It is also useful for identifying areas of the borough to target insulation works”, comments the Council’s Environmental Strategy and Sustainability Manager. “We are committed to reducing carbon emissions throughout Bournemouth and anything that will help residents to take positive action must be actively encouraged”.

The Cities Revealed thermal data is captured at 50cm resolution by an airborne thermal infrared sensor flying at an altitude of 1500 ft. To ensure the quality and integrity of the data, the imagery is collected under the following conditions:

·        Winter season (usually between November and March)
·        Ambient air temperature below 4oC
·        Survey time between 6 / 7 pm and 11pm
·        No cloud or rain during the survey

With energy conservation high on every Council’s agenda, thermal surveys are receiving a great deal of interest. To date, The GeoInformation Group has supplied a multitude of councils with thermal imagery including; Poole, Surrey Heath, various London Boroughs, Gloucester, Southampton, Wolverhampton, Coventry, Tyne and Wear Councils and Newcastle under Lyme.
