Digital mapping and GIS software developer Cadcorp, UK, has announced that it has been awarded a contract to provide its Cadcorp SIS – Spatial Information System software, together with implementation and training services, to the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA). The contract was awarded to Cadcorp following LFEPA’s standard tender procedure.
Cadcorp will deliver and implement both desktop and Web-based versions of its digital mapping/GIS software suite, including Cadcorp SIS OS MasterMap Loader for loading and managing Ordnance Survey MasterMap data.
Cadcorp SIS Map Editor and Map Modeller will be used by the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority to provide specialist desktop users with GIS and mapping applications to support risk planning, emergency and operational planning, property and resources management, community fire safety initiatives and ‘hotspot’ analysis. In addition, Cadcorp GeognoSIS.NET Web-based software will enable non-specialist users to access standard datasets (e.g. incident by date and/or type) via the intranet and to combine these with standard overlay maps, such as London borough or fire station boundaries. This includes the ability to print high quality maps locally and to add, for example, custom symbols and boundaries.
