Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi)
We have been working with OSi since 1979 in the provision of technology for the capture and management of their large scale digital data.
Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) has a proud history of quality and innovation. It was founded in 1824 to produce accurate mapping as the basis of a more equitable tax system. As a consequence, Ireland was the first country on earth to be mapped at a scale of six inches to one mile. OSi has maintained its position as one of the world’s most advanced mapping agencies, moving from the use of engraved limestone slabs, through copperplate etching, to digital technology. By the end of the twentieth century, OSi was one of the largest civilian users of digital photogrammetry (taking measurement from aerial photography) in the world.
