Institute For Continuous Improvement in the Public Sector and Ordnance Survey are hosting a regional of regional workshops to help public sector organisations to understand learn more about how geospatial insights can help drive cost savings, improve service quality and engage public. To register interest contact email@example.com.
Using location data for public sector analytics has enabled valuable insights by exposing and exploiting the geographic dimension of data using maps as a visualisation tool. For example, Gloucester County Council needed to reduce their costs of bus subsidies by £2 million. Instead of cutting their staff and cancelling routes, they plotted the various bus stops to obtain a visual analysis, which reduced duplication and redesign underutilised routes so they were more cost effective. Huntingdon District Council were able to identify over 500 properties that were under occupied and helped families to more suitable living space. Northumberland National Park Authority had a manual procedure to process its planning applications and the use of non-standard addresses meant that duplicate and incorrect address information was entered into the planning system and led to inefficiencies. By deploying a fully-automated planning system and with spatial addressing data they were able to standardise all its planning applications which has meant that the planning process has become more efficient and saved NNPA a considerable amount of time and effort.
With cuts in public expenditure, wider availability of information and the expectation to deliver greater transparency in government operations will challenge the thinking of all public sector senior managers. The Public Sector Mapping Agreement for England and Wales (PSMA) and the One Scotland Mapping Agreement (OSMA) provides the framework for free at the point of use access to location data for all public sector organisations in Great Britain. These not only bring considerable overhead savings for Government, currently predicted to be between £60 million and £148 million per annum, but also entitle virtually the whole of the public sector to utilise Ordnance Survey geographical data at the heart of decision making and the delivery of many public services.
Institute For Continuous Improvement in the Public Sector and Ordnance Survey are hosting a series of regional workshops to help public sector organisations to understand learn more about how geospatial insights can help drive cost savings, improve service quality and engage public. The first roadshow is on 28th June at York.
