London’s most accurate building height map launched by FIND

FIND, the UK's most advanced online mapping website, has launched an exclusive London Building Heights map. This online map shows buildings with height points superimposed; just like spot heights traditionally shown on walking maps for hills and mountains. The accuracy of the map is unprecedented. In a recent test, One Canada Square, a skyscraper in Canary Wharf, was only 76 cm off its actual height. The building height map shows at a glance the average and maximum height of any London building, its area and volume, complete with the estimated number of residential and commercial floors.

Mariam Crichton, FIND's Development Director, said: “Architects and Planners have frequently asked FIND if reliable building height information is available, as it was not we decided to create our own building height model to solve their problem."

In order to create the most accurate building height map available, FIND used sophisticated modelling techniques to combine some of the highest quality mapping and height survey data in the UK. This map layer can be used for viewing a site within the context of its surroundings, attaching height values to a planning application, or just getting a feel for the surface terrain of an area.

FIND’s June release also utilises the recent release of OS OpenData with maps such as Ordnance Survey Street View now free to view. In addition, FIND has become one of a select few mapping providers in the UK to offer professional quality maps and data for Northern Ireland from OSNI.
