Independent Scottish property consultancy CKD Galbraith has developed a bespoke cloud-based application utilising current and historic mapping to provide an online databank containing both CKD Galbraith-specific data and third-party geographic information.

To date the firm has mapped over 4.1 million hectares – more than half Scotland’s land. Information can be accessed and extracted by a few mouse clicks, facilitating faster appraisal of proposals and with it swifter decision making.

Calum Innes, Head of Energy, said: “CKD Galbraith’s GIS service is a breakthrough for any business involved in renewable energy, agriculture, forestry or sporting estates –  it is a vital additional resource for use in the preparation of all types of bespoke plans and maps together with 3D visualisations.

“In addition to plan production, desktop GIS services make available the full spectrum of spatial analysis tools and visualisation of geographic information.”
