BT Ireland

BT Ireland
BT is one of the world’s leading providers of communications solutions serving customers in Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific. Its principal activities include IT and networking services, local, national and international telecommunications services, and higher-value broadband and internet products and services.

Project Overview

BT Ireland BT makes extensive use of OSi digital mapping and aerial photography for the planning and implementation of telecommunications infrastructure throughout the country. Telecommunications providers require highly precise and accurate mapping in order to deliver services to exactly where their customers are located. The integration of the BT network information with OSi Spatial data and digital mapping is required for analysis and planning purposes. The BT Network can be displayed and cross referenced with geocoded location information and address databases. This gives the user streamlined access to all data required in an easy to read visual format.

This is especially required for the further rollout of broadband services to rural locations.

OSi Data Bases employed

  • Large Scale Mapping
  • Small and Medium Scales Mapping
  • High and low level imagery and orthophotography
  • Height models and Lidar models
  • National Boundaries and small areas database
