thinkWhere Supports GIS Innovation at Scotland’s Rural College

By GeoConnexion - 29th October 2020 - 13:41

thinkWhere has delivered a field-to-desk GIS solution for Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC). Working with SRUC’s commercial division, SAC Consulting (SACC), thinkWhere implemented its location data portal, groundMapper, to provide SACC staff with the ability to produce high quality, consistent map outputs which underpin innovative client solutions. groundMapper also provides access to centralised geospatial data including Ordnance Survey mapping, aerial photography and SACC business datasets. The newly implemented groundMapper system enables the production of standardised maps from predefined templates giving a consistency of mapping output across the organisation. Maps produced using groundMapper are used in the submission of Government and other statutory applications including Agri-Environment Climate Scheme (AECS), Croft Registration and Ecological Focus Areas (EFAs), for example. In addition to groundMapper thinkWhere has introduced the leading open-source desktop mapping software QGIS, to address the needs of advanced users.
