Harrow Council enables mobility through online map-based services

Anh Nguyen | June 23, 2014
Gives employees who work off site access to useful GIS data not available before.

He said that it was "actually very easy" to do this project, taking just two weeks to turn around.

"We built a system so easy that lawyers [who may not be very technical] can use. They could pick it up in an hour. It was web-based, very simple."

Social benefits
Meanwhile, Pennells revealed that Harrow Council understands the social benefits of GIS skills. The council gives Pennells and his GIS colleagues leave each year to volunteer for a charity called MapAction, which deploys GIS experts to areas of the world hit by disasters or in crisis. This has seen Pennells volunteer in countries like Burma, which was been devastated by cyclones.
