active maps for combined and local authorities

Combined Authorities and Local government agencies rely on a wide range of data for their daily operations, including resident information, staff productivity, budget, finances, and major projects – in addition to their environment, sustainability and governance data. 

However, managing and utilising this data can present various challenges.

One of the main challenges is the existence of data silos. Different departments often work independently and maintain their own databases and systems, making it difficult for leaders to access a unified data set that provides a comprehensive view of the community’s needs. The lack of data integration hampers collaboration and prevents a holistic understanding of the challenges and requirements of the community.


Integrate data from unlimited sources including ERP, census data, transport, environment, CCTV feeds and IoT devices - even if they’re from different manufacturers and data held in different locations.


Visualise all the data you’re collating in one single screen that places your data in location context on a live, immersive and interactive map – including 3D bar charts, data tables and document stores.


Combine this data and produce interactive charts that show you what is happening now or compare this to other time periods to identify trends.


Share this information with employees, residents and other stakeholders with customisable read-only dashboard from Active Maps. 

Establishing a unified governance strategy is crucial for efficient and effective combined authorities. This strategy should address issues related to data formatting and usage standards and involve multiple stakeholders and departments. By implementing such a strategy, local government leaders can easily access a unified data set and make data-driven decisions.

Furthermore, a significant portion of the data collected by local government agencies has a spatial or location-based attribute. Integrating Geographic Information Systems (GIS) allows users to access a shared and standardized data set. They can then create their own map layers to visualize specific subsets of data. This is where Active Maps comes into play, providing innovative solutions for efficient and responsive local government operations.

what data can we track?

Air Quality

Environmental sensors with multiple telemetry streams can be visualised with other data layers to show cause and effect relationships.

Live Camera Feed

Includes streaming of CCTV as well as providing data set visualisation from AI and ML enabled cameras all viewed in context of where the camera is and the direction it is point in on a map.


Combine demographic and census data with geographical visualisations, such as within council ward, and layer additional data sets with time series analysis to draw meaningful conclusions.

Live Weather

Track live weather information and overlay with other data to visualise and understand underlying trends.

IoT and AI Data

Combine data from various sensors in the service area and produce interactive charts that show what's happening now or compare to a previous point in time to identify trends.

Live Traffic

Track in real time and combine with other sensor information for diversion and route planning.

Increasingly, local and national governments need to find ways to use open data better for the benefit of their communities.  Active Maps speeds up and simplifies the job of combining and analysing data – making it more accessible to a range of project stakeholders. 


With an ever increasing number of sensors and data points within our towns and cities our cloud-native platform easily integrates with both static and dynamic sensor data and can scale effortlessly.

cost saving

Monitoring city wide trends and relationships or working towards preventative maintenance of street lighting and public buildings and facilities can have a huge impact on local government budgets.


Combine census data with other social indicators, analyse trends over time across cities to give meaning and insight to planning and policy - improving community engagement and success rates.
