Building up records

Those that are new to GIS and mapping find that the powerful data capture and editing capabilities of Cadcorp SIS are invaluable for helping them create and maintain map records of their land and property assets.

 

Managing assets

Mapping and aerial photography for grounds maintenanceAsset managers are discovering the advantages of recording properties not simply as addresses or points on a map, but as well-defined features. Many housing associations have realised that their ability to negotiate with grounds maintenance contractors is considerably strengthened when they have used GIS to provide accurate measurements of the spatial extent of areas to be maintained.

 

Sharing the big pictureCount of housing stock by area

Housing associations that have already captured their asset base are now using the power of shared location to help them operate in a joined up manner. They are using the ability of Cadcorp SIS to integrate disparate data sets, present the big picture, and to share that picture more widely through web mapping.

 

Hosted web mapping

Many housing associations could be missing out on the benefits of using geographic information simply because they are unable to justify employing a dedicated mapping expert. Recognising this, Cadcorp has designed a proposition specifically for housing associations that manage less than 10,000 properties.
