Survey maps out brief for AS Biss

Ordnance Survey has called in AS Biss to flag up the changing nature of its operĀ­ations to MPs, MEPs and peers.

The national mapping agency chose AS Biss after a competitive pitch last month.

It has briefed the agency to push the message that its work now goes far beyond providing paper maps and that it now supplies digital map data across central and local government.

It also supplied vital map data to agencies battling the floods that struck the UK earlier this year.

AS Biss will report to head of public affairs Nicole Perry.She said: ‘Digital geographic information is central to many aspects of our lives, from satellite navigation systems to emergency services finding their way to your door and decisions about school transport systems. There is a job to be done to increase awareness of the importance of up-to-date, quality mapping.’
