Mapping (GIS)

A GIS or Geographic Information System is a computer system capable of capturing, managing, analysing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information – i.e. data identified according to location.

We have a large amount of data that contains a location reference placing that data at a point on a map such as:

  • a grid reference
  • address
  • postcode

Data such as the location of street lighting, ward boundaries, or the routes of refuse trucks can be displayed in the GIS according to their position in the real world, and viewed on an OS map base or analysed further using thematic mapping. Presenting data in this way gives us a better understanding of the data we hold.

What we do

The GIS team manage and maintain the corporate address database – Local Land and Property Gazetteer (LLPG).

We also manage and update the maps and data on the Council website / Geodiscoverer.and Mapinfo. If you have data you would like to display on these maps that would be useful to the general public or for internal use by members of staff, or if you have an update/amendment to your content, please let us know.
