I need information on   > GIS format for Central London   >
From: "Steve Neville"
I was looking for any information there is in GIS format for central London. I think a company called Landmark does historical use information but can't find them, any ideas?
The company you are looking for is called "Landmark Information Group Ltd". They have a database of OS maps that go back to the 1860's, and produce environmental assessments of areas that may be potentially contaminated.
They have the following data products :-
Landmark are based in Exeter, and their contact details are as follows:-
Landmark Information Group Ltd
7 Abbey Court, Eagle Way
Sowton, Exeter EX2 7HY
Tel (01392) 441 700
Fax [01392 441 709]

The data that Landmark produces is primarily 'Raster' (ie like a photocopy) but there is also 'Vector' data available (ie scaleable). If you want 'Vector'GIS data for the London area, I suggest that you visit the Association for Geographic Information website.
ContamiCheck is an environmental risk screening service operated by Environmental Auditors Limited. It holds data concerning :
New Timber, West Sussex, BN6 9BS

There is a third company that sells Environmental GIS data, called Sitescope. They are a bit coy about giving out a phone number, but are currently trying to 'AOL' the world with trial CD's with 15 free reports.
My sources tell me that the company is run by two ex-founders of Landmark Information. Their data-sets include Environmental Agency and British Geological Survey information. However whereas Landmark's data is in a standardised format (Menu fixe), Sitescope's is more pick + mix (a la Carte)
Their contact details are:-
And finally there is a company that is planning to fly the whole of the UK at 1:1,000 scale this year, for the Millennium Mapping Company. The air-photography is being done by :-
Coalville, LE67 3NR

They have got photography of London ('Cities Revealed') and supply it on CD with a basic GIS package.
