RMSI, a global leader in the geospatial information and software services industry, and its consortium partners have won a major data capture mapping contract, with Land Registry in Ireland.

The consortium, which also includes Landmark Solutions, UK, and Proteus Solutions Ltd, Cork and Dublin Ireland, will partner to convert, store and manipulate the Registry's 32,000 map sheets, which contain an estimated 2.4 million land parcels. The database of maps will link to the corresponding Land Registry folio.

The new five-year contract commenced in June 2005, and will involve converting existing paper map records for over 1.6 million properties into an electronic format as part of the Land Registry's large-scale Digital Mapping Project. RMSI, which also has offices in the US and UK, expects to hire an undisclosed number of new employees in fulfillment of the large contract.
