Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service Implement OS OnDemand Through Innogistic’s OpenWINGS GIS.

August 09, 2010 -- Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service (HFRS) has become the first UK brigade to implement OS OnDemand, the Web Map Service (WMS) offered by Ordnance Survey. They are accessing the service utilising specialist functionality available in OpenWINGS, the brigades GIS solution supplied by Bristol based software developer, Innogistic.

OS OnDemand, which itself has just had a significant performance and capacity upgrade, is a national web map service that serves raster images, including OS MasterMap Topography Layer, directly into a customer’s geospatial application using Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) WMS standards. Innogistic’s OpenWINGS GIS application is fully OGC compliant and is one of the first commercially available packages to be able to interface with this type of WMS service.

John Hinton Risk Intelligence Data Manager at HFRS said; “We are very pleased with the service. Accessing OS OnDemand through OpenWINGS means that we can reduce our reliance on the costly data storage infrastructure we have been using. Similarly we also know that the data served to us is as current as possible without our having to worry about managing updates. We have been an OpenWINGS customer for some time now and have been very impressed by the way Innogistic have kept pace with new technology such as this.”

The support facilities built into OpenWINGS for Basic and NT LAN Manager Authentication allow the solution to comfortably integrate with OS OnDemand. As an Ordnance Survey Developer Partner, Innogistic has placed a high level of importance on working closely with the national mapping agency on their new delivery systems. This new development is a good example of how this partnership has delivered real cost benefit to an important customer for both Ordnance Survey and Innogistic. Julian Cooper, Service Development Manager at Ordnance Survey comments “I’m really pleased that the OS OnDemand service from Ordnance Survey is playing a key role, along with Innogistic’s OpenWINGS software, in delivering an effective solution for Hampshire Fire.” Although HFRS is one of the first, it is likely that there will be a lot of interest in this service from other existing and future Ordnance Survey and Innogistic customers too.
