1Spatial makes a splash with Thames Water!

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is using 1Spatial’s Radius Studio to help deliver a key component in Thames Water’s GIS Foundation project.

The objective of the GIS Foundation project is to create and maintain a consolidated, central repository for all geo-referenced asset data, which will allow a single point asset query across all business processes and supporting systems as well as display the spatial representation of the Thames Water network and property assets. Successful completion of this project will enable improvements to risk analysis and hydraulic modelling that are required by the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI). TCS is implementing the project for Thames Water and is using 1Spatial’s Radius Studio product to assist with the data migration.

All Utilities, under the Water Act 1991 and the New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA) Section 79/80, are required to display a current mapping background. Thames Water needed a solution that would allow them to migrate legacy Land-Line based data, used by a number of discrete GIS applications, into an OS MasterMap® data system.
1Spatial’s Radius Studio product was recognised by TCS as being able to assist with data management challenges, therefore enabling Thames Water to make efficiency gains in their important risk analysis and hydraulic modelling activities.

Radius Studio was selected for its low risk, highly automated, COTS-based solution approach and will meet the requirements of the GIS Foundation project whilst contributing towards improved efficiency of the Thames Water GIS environment in the future.
