Effective estate management requires consistent maps and up-to-date asset information. Intrinsica’s ‘Estate Mapping’ service and tailored IT solutions provide low cost means for you and your staff to collect, maintain, analyse and report on the estate’s infrastructure and assets.
Managing the assets around the estate
Estate management is often hindered by the lack of a consistent set of maps and information detailing the location and condition of estate features and assets. Typically, this information is spread throughout many separate documents and files in the estate offices: the maps are all different scales; information is often out-of-date; and no-one is sure whether it is accurate or complete.
Intrinsica’s Estate Mapping services provides you with a consistent set of maps and information detailing the location and condition of estate features and assets. Mapping and inventory can include fences, gates, rights of way, trees, stiles, signs, water and gas utility pipelines, electricity and communication cables, etc. Estate Mapping shows how each aspect relates to all the others.
Estate Mapping is a low cost service for organisations that need to maintain, inspect, report and analyse estate features and assets. It provides a holistic and consistent set of maps with detailed supporting data. Better estate management decisions can be made when you have accurate information at your fingertips and a coherent view of all aspects of your estate in one place. It will facilitate many day-to-day estate management tasks, maintain inventory of features and furniture, and provide accurate information for your publicity and management decisions.

Solutions to suit your needs
Based on your requirements, Intrinsica will select an appropriate mapping application and develop a database and reporting system tailored for your estate. The intial maps are generated by pieceing together information gathered from various estate records, local government and utility companies. These are further refined during reviews with the estate staff. If required, Intrinsica or your own staff can carry out on-site surveys to map the undocumented features and to verify locations and layout of all the mapped features.
When the numerous sources of information and surveys are collated into a consistent set of maps, the Estate Mapping can be provided in three different ways.
The information will be compiled into a set of maps for viewing with Google Earth on your own PC. Google Earth™ is a free satellite image application which you can download from the Internet.
