GIS Standard Operating Procedures for Mapping and Data Delivery
BSC was retained by National Grid to provide Geographic Information Systems (GIS) standard operating procedures for mapping and data delivery. The standards establish consistent GIS workflow methods and maintain a framework for spatial data creation and map production. Excellent GIS standard operating procedures assure quality control of all processes involved, and enforce consistency in spatial datasets and map reports. BSC staff designed cartographic policies and procedures for National Grid, streamlining the GIS map production process. To also define cartographic policies, BSC created general mapping guidelines and layout standards. Spatial dataset standards were also prepared for National Grid to provide detailed guidelines for the development and production of spatial data, assuring a higher level of consistency and compatibility for spatial data delivery.
