Introduction to Landmap - the geo-spatial service


Published on

Landmap is funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and is a Mimas (National Data Center, based at the University of Manchester) hosted service. Providing high quality spatial datasets is the main aim of the service enhanced with a diverse range of learning materials to support their use.

  • 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.
  • 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 effect
  • UKMap Applications include: Local Planning -Property mangement; Crime reduction; Urban designLand and Property - Urban planning; Commerical site investigation; Residential property searchEmergency Services - Operational planning; Crime location analysis; Route analysisEnivronmental Management - Tree preservation, Flood modelling, Carbon emission mappingThermal Imagery applications include:Building heat loss measurement Strategic climate change planningCommunity energy target settingSustainable community initiatives Fuel povery calculationsEnergy conservation programmesPlanning sub-surface heating systemsPipe line heat loss analysisBuilding maintenance and upgrade programmes
  • DMC – Disaster Monitoring Constellation data, contracts have been signed - 4m Panchromatic Imagery - 32m Multispectral Imagery - Applications: Crop Monitoring, Fire Risk Assessment, Land use change, Environmental Mapping - Available from March 2011ALOS PALSAR - Fine Beam Mode, PRISM & AVNIR available through Catergory 1 ESA Project - Data to be ordered in December 2010 - Processing Jan – Feb 2011 - Release through Kaia Mar 2011 – Apr 2011Scotland 5m DTM and 2m DSM - available from March 2011
  • 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

    3. 3. Our Purpose<br />Providing web-based access to spatial data and learning materials for UK HE and FE<br />Landmap hosts a combination of remotely-sensed imagery and spatial information unique in UK academia.<br />Datasets are purchased from leading data providers licenses are negotiated and supplied to the academic community for free. <br />In many cases we add value to data before distribution.<br />
