GeoPlace announces launch of 2015 Exemplar Awards

GeoPlace has opened up its annual Exemplar Awards programme to local authorities who use address or street data in innovative ways. Improving public services and overcoming the challenges of data sharing is a key focus for GeoPlace. The Awards highlight best practice in local authorities using land and property and street information to tie different services from across the council together to give a âproperty level view of servicesâ. Past winners include authorities who have used their gazetteers to underpin many aspects of local government business: from large gazetteer enabled transformation projects which save authorities millions of pounds; to smaller initiatives which have found clever ways to join up information. The Awards will be presented at GeoPlaceâs annual conference and exhibition on 19th May at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham.
