UK: UK-based aerial photography company Getmapping has bagged a three year contract to host the ‘All Wales Mapping Services Framework’ datasets. The framework will provide a cloud-hosted base mapping service covering the whole of Wales, including a 2 kilometer buffer along the Welsh border with England. It can be accessed through desktop GIS, mobile or Web mapping applications. The service will be available to all Public Sector Mapping Agreement members, including Local Authorities, Police, Fire and Rescue organisations, National Parks and Public Health Wales. Getmapping has also agreed to host and stream a range of third party datasets. These include historic mapping and historic aerial photography, provided at both national and regional levels to member organisations.
