Atkins Wins Support Contract for Marine Scotland Interactive Web Mapping Portal

Epsom, United Kingdom, April 24, 2013—Atkins has won a competitive, two-year contract from Marine Scotland to provide support and enhanced functionality to its interactive web mapping portal, the National Marine Plan interactive (NMPi). This contract will see Atkins adapting the portal to meet changing client needs, including regional views of maps and data.

The portal, which was designed by Atkins in 2011, allows the public and stakeholders to view and query marine spatial data. Registered users can download data and submit information for consideration in the marine planning process.

Atkins enhanced the portal’s functionality last year with customisable, printable maps, and a mobile and iPad friendly version of the site. This enables Marine Scotland to easily access NMPi during stakeholder engagement meetings, and allows users to view their location on the portal maps.

Atkins’ principal GIS consultant Colin Henderson said: “We are excited to continue our support to Marine Scotland’s NMPi; it’s been interesting to see its development over the years. The most exciting development for us was the creation of CIRRUSmaps™, a new technology platform that enables Atkins to produce high-performance, low cost, web mapping applications and solutions for our clients.”

Atkins’ systems team designed and implemented the portal during a three month period in 2011, and now hosts it on behalf of Marine Scotland in a private cloud infrastructure. This infrastructure assures the site’s high availability, scalability, performance and flexibility. It is EU INSPIRE directive “ready”, providing Marine Scotland with a head start in their INSPIRE compliance journey.
