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.
Driving forward Ireland's geospatial journey with high quality, trusted data
“Ireland’s Public Service Data Strategy aims to improve citizen and business integration with government through better digital and data services. The growing profile of PRIME2 and its benefits is helping wider government to understand our role in integrating datasets to realise this vision. Working with 1Spatial and using its platform is enabling us to demonstrate the importance of data governance in driving forward content, quality and interoperability.”Spatial Data Analyst Manager, Ordnance Survey Ireland
