Laser-Scan announced that starting in 2005 they will extend their support for all Ordnance Survey Great Britain (OS) customers migrating to OS MasterMap.
In November 2001 Ordnance Survey launched the definitive digital map of Great Britain called OS MasterMap. It is an intelligent digital map designed for use with GIS and databases. It depicts the real–world digitally and presents this comprehensive, advanced information as themes in a series of layers, each layer carrying millions of features.
Laser-Scan software tools and solutions were originally used to manage the data quality assurance aspects of the OS LandLine to OS MasterMap re-engineering exercise. The same topology engine that was used to process the original 440million features is now available in an Oracle spatial environment through Laser-Scan’s Radius Topology product. Additionally, the original topology engine is being used to help build the Integrated Transport Network (ITN) layer for OS MasterMap.
