Within the last six months The GeoInformation Group has invested in capturing new aerial photography, LiDAR surveys and has created new derived datasets of London, making them the ideal geographic information provider for the capital.
Alun Jones, Managing Director of The GeoInformation Group, commented, “London is one of the world’s busiest cities, as a tourist destination, as a business hub for financial trading and insurance and as the home to the United Kingdom’s government. To meet the demands of this dynamic city, professionals such as architects, property developers, and utility planners as well as and central and local government bodies such as Transport for London, and the emergency services need to have the current and accurate geographic information available in order to make informed decisions about the development of London. The Digital London event will raise awareness of the availability of detailed and highly accurate spatial data available to the people who need it most.
In just over five years London will host The 2012 Olympics and will play host to the worlds elite athletes and thousands of sports enthusiasts. In the intervening years, London will see major development affecting and improving its transport networks, utility supply, open spaces and recreation amenities. The Digital London event is a must attend for anyone involved in the development of London for The Olympics and beyond.”
