Woking, Surrey 27th September 2010 – A presentation from the Ordnance Survey on the PSMA (Public Sector Mapping Agreement) is the most recent to be confirmed in the latest instalment of Gazetteer Best Practice Days: One Wales – One Voice
Being held at the MRC in Llandrindod on 2nd November, the Ordnance Survey will present on what the PSMA means to the gazetteer community in Wales, with specific focus given to the National Address Gazetteer and any potential impact on the public sector.
This presentation is the fifth to be confirmed, with the other presentations from the Welsh Assembly Government, Cardiff Council, the AGI and one from Gwynedd Council on bilingualism in addressing. Additionally there will be an open debate session chaired by Shaun Powell from the Welsh Assembly.
One Wales – One Voice is ideal for local government, the emergency services and indeed anyone working in address management in Wales. For those that create address data they will gain from being with the end-users and hearing their needs; whilst those end users will gain from the opportunity to influence the people who create and maintain addresses.
One Wales – One Voice is being hosted by gazetteer specialists Aligned Assets who currently work with over 50% of local authorities in Wales. Managing Director Dinesh Thanigasalam explained the reason for the day, “Requirements in address data naturally varies depending on the organisation and it’s important for all these requirements to be heard so that we can all move forward with a greater understanding.”
“We already have 22 different organisations signed up to attend and I very much look forward to some constructive and worthwhile debate. It’s great also that all attendees will receive four AGI CPD points.”
The event is open to anyone who is involved in the creation, management or use of address data in Wales. For further information or to reserve a space email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.aligned-assets.co.uk/events.
