1Spatial Underpins Web-based Mapping & Asset Management Solution at Network Rail

Cambridge, UK: (www.1spatial.com) 1Spatial is the global spatial software firm which manages the world’s largest spatial data. The company was chosen by Network Rail to provide its geospatial technology, which underpins an innovative web-based mapping and asset management solution.

 

One of the UK’s largest infrastructure owners, Network Rail is currently undertaking a five-year £330million transformation programme to improve its approaches to acquisition, storage and usage of asset information.

 

As part of this programme of work, 1Spatial technology will visualise accurate, real time, asset information, which was previously stored in disparate legacy applications. This will give access to the data to over 36,000 Network Rail staff and over 3,500 external users, including the Emergency Services and British Transport Police.

 

Marcus Hanke, CEO of 1Spatial plc commented, “We are delighted to support Network Rail with 1Spatial’s geospatial technology. Our ability to rationalise and integrate datasets will assist Network Rail in providing vital benefits to the infrastructure of our UK transport system. 1Spatial’s expertise enables us to work across market segments and support large organisations through significant transformation programmes”.

 

 

About Network Rail

Network Rail owns, manages and develops Britain’s railway – the 20,000 miles of track, 40,000 bridges and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations (the largest of which we also run). In partnership with train operators we help people take more than 1.65bn journeys by rail every year and move hundreds of millions of tonnes of freight, saving almost 8m lorry journeys. We employ 36,000 people across Britain and work round-the-clock, each and every day, to provide a safe, reliable railway.

 

About the Railway Upgrade Plan

The Railway Upgrade Plan is Network Rail’s investment plan for Britain’s railways. It makes up two-thirds of Network Rail’s £40bn spending priorities for the five years to 2019 and represents the biggest sustained programme of rail modernisation since the Victoria era. It is designed to provide more capacity, relieve crowding and respond to the tremendous growth Britain’s railways continue to experience; passenger numbers have doubled in the past 20 years and are set to double again over the next 25 years – so we need to continue to invest in building a bigger, better railway. For passengers, that means:

  • longer, faster more frequent trains;
  • better, more reliable infrastructure; and
  • better facilities for passengers, especially at stations.
