Snowflake Software: Serving OS MasterMap to the UK higher and further education communities

January 21, 2010 — As EDiNA’s highly successful Digimap service celebrates its ten year anniversary, Snowflake Software celebrates the success of GO Publisher WFS, which provides the infrastructure behind the scenes.

The challenge for EDiNA was to provide a scalable, robust and reliable service delivering over 500 million OS MasterMap® features in GML to over 32,000 users from 148 educational institutions throughout the United Kingdom.

The solution was to implement a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) based on OGC® standards delivered using Snowflake Software’s GO Loader and GO Publisher WFS off-the-shelf products.

The results have been clear, with a trouble-free launch of the fully-working service with users productive from day one. Average response times of 15 minutes and all requested datasets supplied online within 48 hours.

Additionally, it’s highly scalable and proven to meet peak loads.

Andrew Seales, Senior Software Engineer at EDiNA comments,

“We needed to be in a position to incorporate other GML products in the future and the generic approach of GO Loader and GO Publisher gave us that.”


EDiNA is now able to achieve its goals and make OS MasterMap more accessible and widely distributed than ever before. And with the generic approach of the Snowflake Software, the Digimap service is future proofed for new GML products.
