PROJECT OVERVIEW: Wolf Logic Limited, based in Telford, contacted the CREST team in summer 2018, seeking support for a new business idea called Geopoints. It allows registered users to search for any location, using either a postcode or map co-ordinates, to find land and property details such as boundaries, title information, solar suitability, environmental issues and terrain information.
PROJECT OBJECTIVES: The aim was to use CREST’s geospatial expertise and one-to-one business support, to turn the idea into a ready-for-market product which could offer valuable support to property developers, where users can generate reports for download, using a subscription service.
PROJECT SOLUTIONS: The collaboration involved researching and identifying datasets, developing an outline workflow, and creating a template for Geopoints reports. The CREST team also helped Wolf Logic Ltd to apply for funding, and build and promote its business network. The Wolf Logic team say: “CREST support has enabled us to accelerate product development and the advice given by Dr Andrew Miles has been invaluable.” Testing is now under way, and it is hoped the product will be ready for release in summer 2019.
