Dear Micky,

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?

Kind Regards,

Steve Neville

Dear Steve

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 :-

  1. Envirosearch - designed for the property professional, who is dealing with or valuing an individual domestic property.

  2. Sitecheck - designed for a practitioner acting in a commercial transaction

  3. Sitesearch - recently acquired as a result of buying ICC

Landmark are based in Exeter, and their contact details are as follows:-

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.

cheers

Micky

Dear Steve

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:-

Dear Steve

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 :-

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

cheers

Micky
