Land & Property Services (LPS), Northern Ireland, have selected Envitia’s market leading MapRite product to enable the automatic alignment of Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) field boundary and ineligible area polygons to positionally improved OSNI® large scale vector mapping.
The work will ultimately enable DARD to continue to provide farmers and land owners with a current and reliable map from which they can make accurate declarations for EU area based aid schemes.
