The Spatial Information Service (SIS) comprises a team of technical and specialist geospatial professionals.
They are responsible for developing and maintaining several spatial data services on behalf of Scottish local government.
The current services they manage are:
- The One Scotland Gazetteer – the definitive register of all addresses in Scotland.
- The National Street Gazetteer – the definitive road network including asset and maintenance information.
- The Spatial Hub –collecting and sharing spatial data.
- TellMeScotland – informing the public of local government notifications like roadworks, planning and licensing.
What can SIS do for local government?
- Collaborates closely with strategic partners to ensure that improved spatial information management increases value to data owners and the wider Scottish community.
- It keeps the local government community up to date on legislation, regulation and data specifications.
- Supports Scottish local government to achieve compliance.
- Centralise the efforts associated with the improvement of spatial information management across local government -resulting in long term efficiency gains and cost savings.
- Place an emphasis on using open source software and technology, as specified by various European and UK directives and initiatives, which will keep their running costs as low as possible.
