Mapping technology improves street cleansing operations at the Isle of Wight
Published: 08 February, 2012
Environmental services company Urbaser is using computerised mapping technology to coordinate street cleaning services on the Isle of Wight. Isle of Wight Council appointed Urbaser as its street cleaningcontractor and as part of this selection process the Council identified the use of a geographic information system (GIS) as an essential component for delivering the service.
Urbaser will be using the GIS supplied by GGP Systems to map information such a bin locations, road sections and pavements to be cleansed as well as the planning work such as the clearing of fly tipping.
GGP GIS helps organisations to maximise the potential of geographic information. The system allows managers to effectively plan and deliver routine cleansing services and to manage the response to ad hoc requests from the Council or members of the public.
