1Spatial enabled London Fire Brigade (LFB) to create faster, automated routes queries, reducing processing time from 40 working hours to just two. Routing is critical for fire crews and the right appliance must also get to the right location as quickly as possible. LFB streamlined its data management and created a single, authoritative set of geospatial data that could be shared across the organisation. It used Safe Software’s FME application to support this work. 1Spatial suggested using FME to automate the process of updating inter-station travel times, eliminating the potential for manual errors, as well as saving time and money. As a result, travel times can be updated monthly to reflect the impact of roadworks, changed road layouts etc., ensuring that staff transfers can be managed as efficiently as possible.
