mapping solutions for councils

Pear Technology - OS Partner

Pear Technology is extremely experienced in digital mapping for Local Councils and presents a complete step-by-step service for map preparation and software training to get you up and away. As well as offering compellingly accurate cemetery and allotment map creation, we can generate you an entire digital map of your region – so you’ll have fully interactive digital maps from which to contextualize and plan Council activities.

Pear Technology provides a one-stop shop for Council mapping and associated needs such as asset management. Using digitized Ordnance Survey maps- (which are free to councils signed up to the Public Sector Mapping Agreement) – our software can be utilized to give each Council exactly the right tools to view, edit, overlay and link features to related databases.

By having separate pieces of software, Councils can not only personalise their digital mapping system to suit their needs, but also expand their system over time. All our software is designed to be easy to use and so with the reassurance of our superb ongoing aftercare, can greatly increase the capability and efficiency of managing the region under administration.

Maps can be quickly emailed to contractors, placed on the web-site for public information purposes, sent to principal authorities and printed out at any size.

By having a one-stop shop, there is no debate over who to call for help.

Local or internet installations available.

Pear Technology

“Stratton St. Margaret Parish Council is responsible for cemeteries, allotments, play areas, open spaces and assets such as dog bins, litter bins etc. Pear’s  software  has not only helped with the management of all this but is easy to use.”

Asset Manager

Asset Manager records all the details of your assets including photographs, incident logs and provides automatic task reminders to be audit compliant. Asset Manager requires little training and includes a map so that the location of each asset can be displayed.

Support

We provide you with a ready to use system, training and on- going support to get you and your colleagues started. For cemeteries, allotments and events we offer a map preparation service and for town and parish maps, we can work with you to plot all your information, assets etc. so that you receive a map that is ready for immediate use.

Maps and data sets

It is important to note that our mapping software enables you to edit digital map data such as that provided by Ordnance Survey. Local Councils are entitled to use Ordnance Survey map data at no cost once they have signed up to the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA). More details can be found here.

Joining the PSMA gives you access to “free” map data but you will still need our map editing software, PT-Mapper Pro to view and edit your map data.

Pear Technology is a Licensed Partner with the Ordnance Survey and so we can supply you with all the map data that you require once you have joined the PSMA.

There is a wide range of map data available and we will advise you on which map data set is most appropriate for your use.

OS MasterMap

OS MasterMap Topography Layer

The Ordnance Survey MasterMap Topography Layer is the standard for all professional mapping requirements and for all Government organisations, including the Land Registry and Natural England. It is the most detailed, most accurate mapping available and shows detail down to individual building level..

Land Registry

land registry

We can provide the two levels of information from the Land Registry. The high value product gives direct access to the Land Registry’s source of information for all property titles. This allows you to verify land ownership against OS MasterMap data, create separate Land Registry maps for each title, and identify anomalies and confirm exact ownership areas.

With Open Land Registry, you can get the map data showing all areas of registered land, with the areas identified with an Inspire ID that allows you to raise queries through the Land Registry website. Read more here.

Mobile devices

Trimble Juno
We can supply a range of mobile devices (‘phone, tablet or specialist unit) to take out on-site to record the location and condition of assets such as bins, trees, flower tubs, bus shelters, street lights, etc using a built-in GPS. Information recorded can then be quickly added to your map or logged into a database or spreadsheet.
