HUNTSVILLE, Ala., April 10, 2014
Intergraph has been appointed by Transport for London (TfL), to implement a cloud-based GIS solution for the integrated body responsible for implementing and managing London’s transport strategy and services. The new solution for TfL’s Commercial Development Directorate provides improved GIS performance, greater accessibility and transparency of property assets and more up-to-date and improved functionality.
Using GeoMedia, Intergraph’s hosted environment will consolidate and enhance capabilities and data that were previously spread across in-house desktop systems, a commercial web provider and an external portal. It will support a diverse set of users with capabilities to document, maintain, leverage and consult TfL property asset records.
The unified service centralizes data and delivers different levels of access to directorate users, other TfL and Greater London Authority users as well as the public under TfL’s transparency program, which aims to boost publicly available information. The system also simplifies data management, increasing the refresh rate of TfL’s small-scale mapping data from Ordnance Survey from annually to every six weeks.
“Intergraph’s cloud-based GIS solution provides a more rich, robust and user-friendly application,” said Robert Widz, Intergraph’s EMEA geospatial executive director. “By easily sharing more current information, organizations can adapt to changing demands and deliver greater value to a broader user base. We’re proud to support TfL’s efforts.”
