Stirling, Scotland, 24 September 2020 - thinkWhere has delivered a field-to-desk GIS solution for Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC). Working with SRUC’s commercial division, SAC Consulting (SACC), thinkWhere implemented its location data portal, groundMapper, to provide SACC staff with the ability to produce high quality, consistent map outputs which underpin innovative client solutions. groundMapper also provides access to centralised geospatial data including Ordnance Survey mapping, aerial photography and SACC business datasets.
“We needed an up-to-date, intuitive solution which would allow our consultants to provide innovative yet practical solutions for our clients,” commented Mary Sheehan, Senior Design Consultant and project lead at SAC Consulting. “Our previous system lacked flexibility and had led to disparity in data capture and storage. It also was out of date and did not reflect changes common in other GIS software.”
SACC provides a range of independent, quality and accessible consultancy services to thousands of customers in Scotland, the United Kingdom and around the world, including famers, crofters, Scottish Government, local authorities and rural businesses. A team of more than 170 consultants, technicians and support staff are located in 25 offices throughout Scotland and the North of England and sharing current data that is accessible from anywhere is paramount.
