How groundMapper can help you

• groundMapper provides you with transparency on land and all areas of your property or estate.
• gmIt enables visualisation of property information in hundreds of categories, from title boundaries, leases, and rights of access to areas of special historical or ecological interest.
• Helps you make informed land-use decisions for example which areas may be suitable for potential development, an energy project or forestry.
• Faster resolution: particularly for legal issues due to ease of identifying land features and boundaries.
• groundMapper is web-based meaning colleagues from across the business as well as trusted external users such as your solicitor can access the system from any device.
• It is user-friendly meaning higher take-up of staff using it – you do not have to be a tech or GIS expert to use it and full training and support is provided.
• Better accuracy and fewer mistakes: staff can access up-to-date location data as a first point of reference.

We’re using groundMapper regularly to help make land-use decisions, and it’s a very powerful way of discussing things. These conversations involve different enterprises within the business, and we can all look at one plan: we can see which areas may be suitable for an energy project, for environmental purposes, or for potential development. Having the maps so easily accessible through groundMapper really aids

decision-making to see how everything fits together.
