As part of Lovell Johns’ GIS Consultancy Services offering, we provide a GIS reporting service or ‘bureau service’ allowing clients to benefit from GIS expertise at their convenience without the need for investment in software, data and training. A client may choose GIS reporting for reasons of convenience and time, allowing them to obtain some map output or spatial analysis in a limited time frame. A skilled GIS Consultant will be appointed to the client to aid discussions around issues of data, design and final output.
A client requiring such GIS and Map Reports will have in mind a specific deliverable, such as a set of employee distribution maps or a particular piece of spatial analysis using third party data such as postcode boundaries or Census data. The maps can be provided in a paper and/or digital format with accompanying tabular data and will usually include some form of branding or title information.
The client often holds a data in the form of an address listing which can be then be geocoded to create a spatial dataset. Because Lovell Johns have the necessary GIS software licenses, base mapping and expertise in-house, analysis and reporting can be undertaken for a fixed fee with minimal involvement from the client. An initial brief will be taken and a methodology agreed after which the client will receive a first proof and then final delivery.
Lovell Johns have delivered GIS Reports for a wide varierty of clients in market sectors such as Environment, Health, Manufacturing, Urban Design, Market Research, Business Consulting and Retail.
