1Spatial Underpins Web-based Mapping & Asset Management Solution at Network Rail
1Spatial is the global spatial software firm which manages the world’s largest spatial data. The company was chosen by Network Rail to provide its geospatial technology, which underpins an innovative web-based mapping and asset management solution.
One of the UK’s largest infrastructure owners, Network Rail is currently undertaking a five-year £330million transformation programme to improve its approaches to acquisition, storage and usage of asset information.
As part of this programme of work, 1Spatial technology will visualise accurate, real time, asset information, which was previously stored in disparate legacy applications. This will give access to the data to over 36,000 Network Rail staff and over 3,500 external users, including the Emergency Services and British Transport Police.
Marcus Hanke, CEO of 1Spatial plc commented, “We are delighted to support Network Rail with 1Spatial’s geospatial technology. Our ability to rationalise and integrate datasets will assist Network Rail in providing vital benefits to the infrastructure of our UK transport system. 1Spatial’s expertise enables us to work across market segments and support large organisations through significant transformation programmes”.
