London Borough of Harrow GIS system

London Borough of Harrow GIS system

The London Borough of Harrow has added high-definition street-level imagery and lidar data to its corporate GIS system, giving staff access to an accurate digital twin of the borough.

The move is designed to improve the efficiency of various tasks in planning, highways and council tax and reduce the overall need for physical site visits.

 The new imagery will mean the planning department can view properties alongside planning applications, Highways can verify that street works have been delivered or plan new mobility schemes, like cycle lanes, while the council tax department can carry out remote property inspections.

 According to Esri, users can also apply the various analysis tools within the GIS system to the imagery, such as accurate measuring of properties or boundaries and viewshed analysis, to determine where shadows may fall from future developments, for example.
