The Society, working with the Association for Geographic Information (AGI), has published a new series of case studies championing and celebrating the critical role geographical information, technologies and approaches play in enhancing the economy and public services.
The case studies explore a range of applications of geographic information including innovative maps and visualisations, humanitarian and disaster responses, the delivery of local and national services, and supporting the geospatial experts of the future.
One case study highlights how Conwy Borough Council implemented a new customer service portal linked to their Asset Management System which allows users to submit a fault report, providing accurate and current information which helps public services to run more efficiently. Focusing on the area’s street light inventory, the portal provides an efficient fault reporting and tracking process and enables electricians to quickly and easily locate assets for investigation and resolution in the field. As a result of the portal, Conwy has seen the percentage of street lamp failures repaired within five calendar days rise to 89.94%.
The Society champions a better understanding of geography and the increased use of geographic information to support and inform business, policy, and community decisions.
