Europa Technologies is delighted to announce that its services have once again been included in the latest procurement framework for cloud-based services for UK Public Sector organisations, G-Cloud 11.
G-Cloud 11 includes all the familiar viaEuropa services, providing comprehensive web services for data from Ordnance Survey, Ordnance Survey Northern Ireland (from Land & Property Services), British Geological Survey, JBA Risk Management and OceanWise. Where appropriate, these data sets may also be licensed through G-Cloud, providing a time-saving ‘one-stop-shop’ solution for clients who need to license products for use within viaEuropa services.
Notably, subscriptions to viaEuropa services have now been enhanced so that all service types (WMTS, WMS, WFS & API) are available at every subscription level (except API-only subscriptions).
Additionally, the new Data Vault service has been launched to facilitate the delivery of digital map data in a broad range of file formats. Intended primarily for users of legacy applications that do not yet support web services, Data Vault extracts data in the specified format for the precise area required.
Duncan Hill, Business Development Director, commented, “We are delighted to build on our commitment to the UK Public Sector by significantly extending our support for this community with our G-Cloud 11 services. The full range of viaEuropa web services and APIs are now available to even individual subscribers and our new Data Vault service helps to bridge the gap for users of legacy systems not yet able to consume web services.”
Award-winning services from Europa Technologies have been available on the framework since G-Cloud 3 and have proved popular with UK government departments, local authorities and emergency services alike, allowing these organisations to consume data as a service consistently, efficiently and economically.
viaEuropa is an ideal service for members of the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA), One Scotland Mapping Agreement (OSMA) and the Northern Ireland Mapping Agreement (NIMA). Members of these central agreements can utilise their respective entitlement to Ordnance Survey and Ordnance Survey Northern Ireland data.
Services from Europa Technologies can be found on the Digital Marketplace, the home of G-Cloud 11, here: https://www.digitalmarketplace.service.gov.uk/g-cloud
