June 30, 2011 -- Clients of a leading survey consultancy have been given a direct route into the UK’s widest portfolio of downloadable map data for feasibility and site work.
Mapshop, an innovative online shop hosted by the geoportal emapsite, is now also available through the website of the geospatial survey firm Technics Group.
The companies’ new partnership will benefit the Technics Group client base of land and property professionals such as architects, developers, building contractors and civil engineers, all keen to access site-centred topographic mapping, aerial photography and height and terrain data.
They can also order a comprehensive range of environmental, flood and utilities reports tailored to their chosen site.
Mapshop, at www.technicsgroup.com, is a completely plug-in free application so it can be used on any browser, not just Internet Explorer.
Technics Group Managing Director Graham Mills, who is President of the Survey Association, said: “Mapshop is complementary to our measured survey and other services. It offers a simple online route to essential map data that is ideal for busy professionals. We expect it to prove increasingly popular across our client base.”
With Mapshop, users can search for their location and view the most up to date and detailed mapping and imagery captured for the site at no cost. They then mark up their project boundary and extract exactly the layers of information they need in a chosen format that will load into their software so they can get on with the job in hand with no delay.
James Cutler, emapsite Chief Executive, said: “We have introduced a series of major service improvements to our Mapshop offering and we are delighted to open another channel by which Technics Group clients can access our hosted mapping content.”
Andrew Murrin of the design-based, multi-disciplined MBH Partnership, a client of Technics Group, said: “Both the range of data available via Mapshop and the flexible choice of formats are outstanding. Mapshop completely speeds up the process of accessing the data we need to analyse sites and generate survey reports.”
