Wakefield District Housing has partnered with Landmark Information for the provision of intelligent location data and advanced mapping services.
By working with Landmark Information, WDH now has access to a wealth of Ordnance Survey MasterMap, Address Point, raster and Land Registry ownership data. The geospatial data underpins the housing provider’s web-based mapping service that is accessed by hundreds of users across the organisation.
Fraser Lumb, GIS analyst, Wakefield District Housing, said, “Using high quality, rich data to manage our assets is vital to our ongoing operations. Landmark can take us to another level of data analytics, such as enabling us to cross-reference our stock list with the address database, apply a Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) for every property and streamline the way we’re working.
“We can now immediately see where we own land and view non-developed land, we can drill down to codepoints, polygons or undertake postcode level analysis to conduct deprivation or price-paid assessments, as well as produce data for internal studies looking at arrears or claims analytics, and all within our preferred CadCorp GIS platform.
“For example, with our ground maintenance or tree management contracts, I can confidently map our requirements to ensure we get best value for money from our contractors. It’s very powerful.”
