Point of Beginning

Ordnance Survey and Laser Scan Host Free Location Data Seminar 04.15.2003

April 15, 2003
Seminar targets transport industry professionals and system integrators and independent consultants working in the transport sector.

National mapping agency, Ordnance Survey, is working in conjunction with geospatial data experts, Laser-Scan, to host a free seminar for transport industry professionals and system integrators and independent consultants working in the transport sector.

The half-day event reveals how detailed location data can be used to research, plan, route and deliver goods and services right to the doorstep - safely evading common disruptions to the supply chain such as congestion, prohibitive fuel costs and security problems. Experts from both Ordnance Survey and Laser-Scan will be on hand to explain how transport professionals can improve services and efficiency, and enhance the end user experience, by putting geographic data at the centre of their operations.

Vertical Marketing Manager for transport at Ordnance Survey, Andy Embling, said:

"By integrating information about their business environment with location based data, transport industry professionals become able to predict and realise very precise supply chains and operational patterns. This seminar will explain how this geographic intelligence can help transport organisations cut costs and increase efficiency."

Using a series of presentations and demonstrations, this event will offer insights into the applications and advantages of location data and will help businesses to develop interoperable solutions, build on existing investments and maintain the quality and accuracy of their data. There will also be opportunities for one-to-one breakout sessions with expert advisers to explain the benefits and applications of location based data for individual businesses.

Steven Ramage, Business Development Director at Laser-Scan, said:

"Laser-Scan has significant experience in dealing with geospatial databases and enterprise wide data management. Working in partnership with the Ordnance Survey, we aim to help organisations within the transport sector maximise their existing investments."

The seminar will take place on Friday 16th May at the Ordnance Survey Business Centre in Southampton, UK.
