Geoscape has launched an on-demand service for spatial data to support distributed engineering works. 

At a time when the entire world is battening down the hatches in response to Covid-19, flexibility in the workplace is essential.

The sudden pivot to working from home is especially challenging for surveyors, planners and construction engineers and many others in the AEC industry, whose roles traditionally rely on being on site to capture and access project data.

Today Geoscape has launched an on-demand remote service for high quality building data, which the company says aims to reduce costs of data access for engineers by 90 percent.

“We appreciate the challenges professionals, like engineers and urban planners, bear in the arduous process of sourcing data for their modelling and visualisations,” said PSMA Australia CEO Dan Paull.

“Challenges including reducing the lead time for accessing data, dealing with inconsistent formats, filling gaps in coverage and spending time integrating data with their engineering software.”

“Significantly, as workforces become increasingly distributed, this new service enables businesses to easily access consistently formatted data for modelling regardless of an employee’s location – whether they’re working in the office, on location or from home.”

Geoscape Spatial Data on Demand features over 15 million Australian buildings and over 14 million addresses, including swimming pool and solar panel data.

The product offers free, self-service quotes for specific data and an area of interest, which can be visualised before downloading. Scalable data purchase plans begin at $500 per month. Product demonstrations are available via Zoom.
