Many Customers, Many Uses

The Telecoms Surveyor

Before the site visit, David must spot mast access points and locate nearby estates that need to be notified of the work and prepare EMF (electromagnetic field) reports to assist clients in establishing safe working practises around telecom apparatus.

The Architect

Leigh generally orders MasterMap in DWG format, which he later overlays on sketches on a table to find new access points and how sites relate to projects. To do site appraisals and location plans, he also combines the maps with Google area views and street views.'

The Town Planner

Stuart’s office uses mapping for a variety of tasks, including planning applications, checking planning constraints such as listed buildings, planning precedents and they create certificates of lawfulness/lawful use, which can include evidence like aerial imagery.

The Transport Planning Consultant

Myles generally orders coloured and black-and-white MasterMap in CAD formats. He uses maps that cover over 300 metres from the site he is working on, which he then transfers to his CAD software to create the necessary location plans.'

The Arboricultural Consultant

Robert purchases location plans in DWG format before going on-site and downloads it to his survey tablet, which has embedded survey software and GPS. He then combines his integrated tree software with AutoCAD to plot the trees and their positions to create different layers for the reports that he produces for his clients.
