  • - E-learning for the Open Geospatial Community
  • A nationally designated data-centre A Centre of Excellence at the University of Manchester An organisation of uniquely skilled experts Hosting a vast number of the UK’s information assets Multidisciplinary, highly specialised data and information Developing tools to help users make the most of that data Constantly balancing quality service delivery with innovation
  • Concerned with the availability, quality, organisation, accessibility and sharing of spatial information which is key to the INSPIRE DirectiveProviding web-based access to spatial data and learning materials for UK HE and FELandmap hosts a combination of remotely-sensed imagery and spatial information unique in academia.Datasets are purchased from leading data providers licenses are negotiated and supplied to the academic community for freeConcerned with the availability, quality, organisation, accessibility and sharing of spatial information key to the INSPIRE Directive
  • Implement the use of Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards for data delivery which allows the Landmap SDI to be interoperable with other services Negotiate licensing agreements on behalf of the wider academic community with data suppliers: limited to the UK academic community Must use UK Federated Access to view and download data
  • Optical &Thermal Collection: IncludesorthorectifiedLandsat 4/5; Landsat 7 and SPOT imagery, MediterraeanLandsat data, Colour Infrared; TopSat, Modern and Historic Aerial Photography; Thermal imagery. This data can be used to map vegetation cover, land use, crop health, and coastal sediment patternsElevation Collection: Includes 75m SRTM, 25m Landmap DTM, LiDAR data for many urban conurbations in the UK; 5m Bluesky DTM for England and Wales. This data can be used to create 3D models, model the effect of aspect on ecology.Licensing agreements – Negotiations
  • RadarCollection: Includes ERS 1; ERS 2; ENVISAT ASAR (Image Mode, Alternating Polarisation, Wide Swath. Use Radar for regular imagery updates to monitor an area without the worry of cloud cover e.g. the intertidal beds of Morecambe BayFeature Collection: Includes Building Heights and Building Class data for the main conurbations in the UK. The data (in shapefile format) can be easily integrated into a GIS or Image Processing package e.g. Modelling the urban heat island effectLicensing agreements – Negotiations
  • Providing WMS and CS-W addresses the minimum requirement as detailed in section 19 of the Inspire Directive
  • Section 6 of INSPIRE Directive states ‘spatial data should be easy to discover, to evaluate their suitability for the purpose and to know the conditions applicable to their use’Section 15 states “descriptions of available spatial datasets and services should be made available in the form of metadata”
  • 1 year project JISC fundedSurvey Quotes“Understanding the source and derivation of data is crucial to whether they are “fit-for-purpose”“Gives a better idea of how the data was collected so you can understand the data better.”
  • Landmap Kaia provides a geo-portal which provides access to Landmap OGC services Plans to provide a Catalog Service for the Web which does not have the UK Federated Access restriction so that Landmap metadata is open to all. Information contained in the metadata aims to fulfil the information defined in Chapter II Article 5 of the Inspire Directive.
  • E-Learning for the Open Geospatial Community
  • - Addresses many spatial data themes as described in Annex I, II and III of the Inspire Directive
  • Key is to widen awareness of Landmap ServiceDeveloped a number of promotional materials & distributed widelyOverview leafletsPosters Postcards3 events completed before 2010: Regional Undergraduate Seminar; UKMap Workshop and Librarian Event4 Landmap Roadshows successfully completed in Cardiff, Sheffield Hallam and Manchester (2) to promote to lecturers/postgraduates4 Landmap Roadshows planned from April – June at Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle and Salford targeting students and lecturersAnother UKMap Workshop arranged for GISRUK 2011 in PortsmouthDeveloped partnerships with Digimap (e.g. given a time slot in Digimap organised training) & JISC Regional Subject Centres.
  • Student & Industry Presenters- Total of 28 students attended the event 37 registered- Students attending came from the below institutions67% University of Manchester13% Salford University13% Edge Hill University7% Sheffield Hallam University53% students had not heard about Landmap before83% of students who had heard of Landmap had used the Learning Zone60% found the presentations good; 33% excellent; 7% average93% felt that the Landmap presentation gave them enough information to start using the service73% found the AGI presentation useful; 7% extremely useful and 20% average66% agreed to participate in user testing of the new Kaia client (9 attendess)
  • The feedback form is open to delegates until 30 Dec 2010. So far 11 delegates out of 19 have responded to the feedback questionnaire.Details are below: 54.5% of delegates had not heard about the Landmap Service before the eventThe Presentations were rated as 45.5% excellent, 36.4% very good and 18.2% good.90.9% felt that the presentations provided them with enough information to start using UKMap or advise others on how to use itSuggestions for future workshops on UKMap are: To do more work on actual data handling of UKMap data with ArcGISMore time devoted to querying the database and styling of the dataMore computer based examples with the sample data that was provided e.g. how to join address layer to the basemapLess paperwork on the data collection even though this was recognised as being important in gaining an understanding of how the data was collectedDr Alun Jones provided details about how UKMap can be applied to a wide range of applications such as:- Local Planning -Property mangement; Crime reduction; Urban design- Land and Property - Urban planning; Commerical site investigation; Residential property search- Emergency Services - Operational planning; Crime location analysis; Route analysis- Enivronmental Management - Tree preservation, Flood modelling, Carbon emission mapping
  • Provides the OGC services required to start delivering data direct to desktop GIS and Remote Sensing softwares Further innovation will take place with exploring the use of Web Processing Services Further work on creation of themed Web Map Contexts Supplying the UKMap data through this interface using the extract functionality for exporting out as GML,KML or shapefile
