Geoscape Case Study
Pitney Bowes has partnered with leading geospatial data supplier PSMA to create GeoVision®
Town planning, compliance, emergency planning and management, visualisation, policy development, service delivery.
Improved risk assessment, premium determination, claims assessment, reduction of customer onboarding questions.
Line of sight and viewshed analysis, market location analysis, RF modelling, connection points.
Building locations, solar installations, connection points to the building, planning.
Automated valuation, marketing, farm mapping, asset evaluation, visualization, development planning.
Size and density of buildings, land usage, urban environment, property features (open space, swimming pools, solar panels).
All of the data provided by PSMA’s Geoscape, enhanced and simplified for ease of use and power of analysis.
The Geoscape file structure has been simplified to enable it to be utilised directly without the need for complex queries or the definition of views. All of the linkages such as address and cadastral information have been populated thus saving significant effort when utilising the data.
Pitney Bowes has also enhanced Geoscape to include address, postcode, locality, Local Government area and census boundary information to simplify reporting and analysis.
