  • OS MasterMap is a database in that each feature is captured as a record in the data, and is given a unique identifier known as a TOID ® . This means that any feature is easily and consistently accessed and identified, making any changes to the data easier to apply. It also means the TOID can be used as a link (or key) to other data – for example, Ineligible features for SPS. With these unique identifiers (database keys), the data is ‘database ready’ – that is, can be loaded into a database system. That, in turn, means the data can be stored once in an enterprise’s information systems and shared by many applications in the organisation – eliminating the problems that would otherwise exist in ensuring data is uniformly consistent.

    1. 1. Rural Payments Agency (RPA) usage of Ordnance Survey data Rupert Waite – RPA Geographic Information Services Peat Allan – Ordnance Survey
    2. 2. Contents <ul><li>Introductions </li></ul><ul><li>Recap on RLR Background & Business As Usual (BAU) updating process </li></ul><ul><li>Land change detection process within RPA </li></ul><ul><li>Concept of Land Change Detection </li></ul><ul><li>Use of OS Change Only Update intelligence. </li></ul><ul><li>Parallel activities. </li></ul><ul><li>Questions. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Rural Land Register (RLR) - Background <ul><li>Rural Payments Agency is responsible for Administering CAP in England. </li></ul><ul><li>The RLR is England's Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS) & holds approx 100 geographic layers (vector & Raster) </li></ul><ul><li>Circa. 2.4m Land Parcels on the RLR </li></ul><ul><li>Circa. 735K Permanent Ineligible features for Single Payment Scheme </li></ul><ul><li>Total Land Area circa 9.4m ha </li></ul><ul><li>Underpinning the definition of each Land Parcel is the Ordnance Survey digital topographic map dataset – MasterMap. </li></ul><ul><li>Ordnance Survey is Great Britain's National Mapping Agency. </li></ul><ul><li>The RLR is based upon the physical block ‘Topographic’ model. </li></ul>
    4. 4. Recap - RLR Business-As-Usual (BAU) ‘Re-active’ update process <ul><li>A central Geographic Information (GI) Services department with RPA manages the RLR (LPIS) </li></ul><ul><li>Routine BAU changes (Inspection, Remote Sensing, customer amendments) are submitted to GI Services as tasks. </li></ul><ul><li>GI Services operates a Black-box service to three agencies delivering SPS, Woodland Grant Scheme and Environmental Stewardship Scheme. </li></ul><ul><li>Quality standards are maintained through 100% QC of digitisation, data entry and parcel attribution. </li></ul>
    5. 5. Change Intelligence - Re-active versus Pro-active Inspection (Physical, Remote Sensed) Customer (RLE1) Scheme (Lit/RD/FC) RLR MasterMap (one-off data refresh) MasterMap (Change Only Update) Points of interest data Aerial Photography (imagery analysis) Systematic “Pro-active” Updating BAU “Re-active” Updating Remote Sensing (imagery analysis on non-controlled)
    6. 6. RPA’s Route-map for Proactive Land Change Detection. Geo-Processes Routine/Cyclical Data Quality checks Pro-active Detection Improved Controls More current & accurate GI Source Data Requirement Engage with data suppliers, OS and Defra over currency Enhanced Tools System development & software Implement Data exchange to and from OS Action Outcome New business Processes Improved RLR accuracy Accurate SPS payments COU processes for Mastermap & Aerial Photography Improved MI on compliance Work Stream 1 Work Stream 2 Work Stream 3
    7. 7. Conceptual Design – Systematic “Proactive” Updating Sources of information Mastermap COU RPA collected data RLR Update Multi-step process to apply COU, to thematic dynamic thematic layers. Geo Information Data Integration – Geo processes Points of Interest data Aerial Photography COU Remote Sensing
    8. 8. What is Ordnance Survey MasterMap Change Only Update COU? <ul><li>Updates to OS Mastermap are delivered to RPA/Defra in a 6 weekly cycle. </li></ul><ul><li>Changes are concentrated around specific areas that have been recently re-surveyed or flown. </li></ul><ul><li>Approximately 1.5% of Mastermap changes in a year. </li></ul><ul><li>Changes can be grouped into Real-World changes (RWC) and technical changes to the dataset. </li></ul><ul><li>Only some of the RWC will affect RLR land parcels and ineligible features </li></ul>
    9. 9. What kind of OS Mastermap change will RPA see through COU? Current RLR The application of this change to the RLR would result in a reduction in field size from 3.11ha to 2.71ha for the field SP0653 0973 NB: This field has been claimed this year at 2.81ha New building and fence added 18/06/2008 RLR & COU

    11. 11. OS MasterMap topographic base data – the technical benefits to RPA <ul><li>What does it mean? </li></ul><ul><li>Each feature in the Ordnance Survey database has its own unique identifier </li></ul>Unique feature identifiers (TOIDs) <ul><li>Features in MasterMap are classified by descriptiveGroup into themes: For example, Administrative boundaries, Buildings, Heritage and antiquities, Water, Land, Rail, Roads, tracks and paths, Structures, Terrain and height </li></ul><ul><li>RPA has identified 12 feature types within the themes that can be identified with high confidence and auto-captured as ineligible features. For example, all ponds are ineligible and safely removed upon receipt of a COU file. </li></ul><ul><li>Benefits? </li></ul><ul><li>Easier management of data changes e.g RPA can filter our TOIDS that are not relevant to the LPIS(RLR). </li></ul><ul><li>Can link to other underlying data e.g A TOID can be linked to an LPIS parcel. </li></ul><ul><li>Database ready for intersect/spatial analysis. </li></ul>
