The Welsh Government is using the viaEuropa for PSMA hosted map service from Europa Technologies to underpin its public facing web mapping applications. The service provides access to Ordnance Survey digital map data (including OS VectorMap Local® and OS OpenData™) as a service. The service was first deployed in the Development and Flood Risk Advice Map, providing citizens with self-service access to information on flood risk zones across Wales. Previously, such information was only available by submitting a written request for a given address and was provided in paper form only.
In response to a tight ministerial delivery schedule, the website went live within three days of the Welsh Government subscribing to the viaEuropa service. The service provides a reusable resource of consistent, detailed and intuitive base maps that the Welsh Government hopes to make further use of in the future. Additional applications already launched include the Marine conservation zone map viewer (to encourage citizen engagement in the consultation process), the Wales Noise Mapping application (publishing estimated noise levels in the three largest urban areas in Wales) and My Local School (a website designed to open up access to schools data for parents and all others with an interest in their local school).
