UK: Broadland Environmental Services Ltd (BESL), a joint-venture between Halcrow and BAM Nuttall, was chosen by the Environment Agency to undertake the Broadland Flood Alleviation Scheme project. The Broadland Flood Alleviation Scheme is a long term project to provide a range of flood defence improvements, maintenance and emergency response services within the tidal areas of the rivers Yare, Bure and Waveney.
Geospatial information is a key to the success of this project and that geospatial information must be presented in a clear and easy to understand way, said Quarry One Eleven.
BESL, supported by Quarry One Eleven, has recently increased the number of publisher for ArcGIS licences. It ensures that more geospatial information can be transferred and presented in the GeoPDF format. GeoPDF is a geographically aware PDF format that opens within the free Adobe Reader and enables anyone and everyone to use and interact with geospatial data.
Christian Hetmank, Project Manager for Halcrow/BESL, said, “The introduction of GeoPDF has provided new and exciting possibilities for sharing geospatial data within the company as well as for the presentation of our work to our clients and the general public.“
