To meet this challenge, we went about sourcing GIS data that was either open data, or available ‘off-the-shelf’, building a feature rich geodatabase.
As part of the project, Harris Lamb and Dignity had their own custom data that they had created with their own intelligence and sources. We were able to import this data too.
Some of the mapping layers had to be created through custom digitising. Using industry standard formats and metadata we were able to accurately digitise these features and store within the ever growing geodatabase.
From this, we were able to call on our cartography skills and put together a series of intelligent, informative and eye catching smart maps.
As a result of the work carried out by CartoConsult, Harris Lamb and Dignity UK have been able to demonstrate to Local Authorities that they have selected the most suitable site for a new crematorium. Some of these sites have been located within the Green Belt, so presenting a strong case has been crucial.
In fact, as a result of the work undertaken by CartoConsult, our clients recently obtained planning consent for a new crematorium in the Green Belt on the Edge of Derby. A great success all round!
