Geoxphere’s Xmap geographic information system for local authorities now includes an EPC data layer to help housing providers and councils tackle climate change, improve housing standards and ensure regulatory compliance.
One of the first users is Bath & North East Somerset Council, which is using the EPC data layer alongside its existing long-term Xmap installation in order to raise housing standards.
Martin Laker, GIS manager, Bath & North East Somerset Council, said, “We are integrating EPC ratings for our properties via Xmap and the EPC layer; this will help us identify potential improvements to our housing stock and make changes to reduce emissions from heating and cooling. The EPC data will also help with the delivery of any future government-funded home improvement schemes.”
Accessible from any web-enabled device, Xmap includes a suite of built-in GIS-referenced workflows to support the delivery of services such as housing and planning.
