Wirral Council Migrates Existing Corporate GIS to Cadcorp

Wirral Council joins Warrington, Sefton and Halton Borough Councils in selecting Cadcorp for intranet and internet web mapping capabilities.

 

At Wirral Council, geographical information is shared with the public through self-service and with 40 teams across the Local Authority. Cadcorp will supply the Council with its off-the-shelf web mapping product, Web Map Layers. This application offers a Local Knowledge™ feature allowing both the public and council to query location based information, such as rights of way and electoral boundaries. Cadcorp’s desktop GIS, Map Modeller will be used by the Council for administering the data layers.

 

Wirral Council required a functionally complete, powerful GIS to operate on their virtualised infrastructure that supports up to 1000 simultaneous users. The Council also required a tool for meeting their obligations under INSPIRE as well as new statutory requirements for open data. Cadcorp software was selected on its capability to fulfil these requirements and for its track record in helping councils make savings.

 

Vikki Chapman, Geographic Intelligence and Mapping Officer at Wirral Council commented: “We needed a GIS that would add value to the services we provide. After looking at how well Cadcorp SIS was serving the Council’s local authority peers, we felt satisfied it was the best solution.”

 

Cadcorp SIS® is being used by UK Local Government Authorities, either directly or integrated in other applications provided by Cadcorp’s technology partners. To find out more, visit the Cadcorp website.
