Unprotected New watercourse mapping – an example of good public sector data collaboration for Scotland. Tom Satterthwaite Product Manager March 2013 Buachaille Etive Mor, Glen Coe, Highlands
Contents Background & Context User requirement Ordnance Survey in 2010 Collaboration Process Implementation plan Early results & lessons learned Slide 2
Slide 3 Scotland 22 nd December 2011
Context Slide 4 Personal cost of flooding is huge Public cost is huge. The Pitt review following the summer 2007 floods. The Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act Flood and Water Management Act 2010 (England & Wales). Ordnance Survey seeks to support: Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) Environment Agency and others
Collaboration project Scottish public sector had/has a requirement to build and maintain defendable flood risk management policy, practice & reporting. Current solutions were increasingly not fit for purpose Locally developed Lacked good interoperability Inconsistently co-ordinated with OS MasterMap Slide 5
Slide 6 Mapping background Digital mapping technology continues to get more powerful and more accessible. Capture once, use many – for consistent, interoperable data Mid-scales (1:50,000) network data No complete and consistent GB wide network map. Mostly available in OS MasterMap Topography Layer but a significant task to extract and then construct a network view.
Ordnance Survey in 2010 Phoenix/GDMS/Maia project delivered. Licensing environment updated PSMA & OSMA in place. OpenData delivered. Slide 7 A desire to be more customer focussed Directly reflecting customer requirements and timescales. So a collaboration project was started.
SDRN project Key members: Scottish Government Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) Scottish local authorities (including SCOTS) Improvement Service Scottish Water Marine Scotland Ordnance Survey Environment Agency Centre for Ecology & Hydrology Slide 8
Collaboration project Project Board High level support Terms of Reference Technical Working Group Project manager funded by Scottish Government Slide 9
Process Slide 10 OS Insight gather detailed requirements show illustrative data (Dundee & Benbecula) Scottish Water – legacy culvert data Scottish Water – supplementary (maintained) culvert data SEPA – catchment definitions Expert input from Marine Scotland, EA and CEH.
Slide 11 Process: User requirement Definition Best in class infrastructure for Scope Maintained large scale structured network. Complete Great Britain Consistent specification INSPIRE compliant. Target users Environment protection agencies Environmental science. Local government (flood management, emergency planning, transport). Key Drivers Statutory requirements Risk mitigation Top Level Needs Data sharing & interoperability.
Project roadmap Alpha – December 2012 Initial Scotland only release User feedback (corrections, connectivity etc) Available across the Scottish public sector (OSMA) Beta – September 2013 Full GB release Attribution complete including catchments and culverts V1.0 – March 2014 Maintained and update published quarterly Full supply or COU (as per OS MasterMap) Included within PSMA* Slide 12 *PSMA inclusion subject to confirmation.
Implementation Getting the data into peoples hands: OS Insight OSMA Now proactively pushing the data to those authorities who have not yet engaged. Release notes – explaining what the data is and what users can expect Early feedback is good. Further work to ensure adoption and if appropriate, withdrawal of local solutions Lead by SDRN Project Manager With support from SEPA and Scottish Government Slide 13
Results to date - & lessons learned + 3 months Early feedback is good Ordnance Surveys key lessons: Engage with user community at earliest opportunity User OS Insight to illustrate concepts and allow users to experience (even the earliest) data Work on 3 rd party licensing from day 1. Consortium licensing arrangements (OSMA in this case) enable access to data simply and quickly. Collaborations are jointly defined and there is no single ideal model. Collaborations are making some projects possible in a way that would not be otherwise possible. Slide 16
