The Universal Map combines our Housing and Contracts Map so we can create a one stop shop for all our mapping projects. It also includes new functionality and data that you won’t have seen before. Excited? I bet you are. We’ve added screen shots below to walk you through it.
The Universal Map can be accessed if you are a Premium client or a Free HA / LA user and you have opt-ed in to our GDPR request. If you have a free registration but can’t view the map you can change your opt-in settings from the Dashboard.
We also made an excruciatingly dull ‘How to’ video to give you an overview of the map features but since then we added the ‘New Business’ section so we’ll update it soon.
Mapping Brownfield Sites
The Strategic Housing Register forms part of the Local Plan and details all areas that could be potential, or actual, sites for housing development. Further details on each site open in the left panel on clicking the map marker.
Mapping Housing Stock
Mapped Land Registry Title Data for Social Housing in England & Wales. Select anywhere on the map to zoom in to the Ward to display all stock. Show the stock by Ward, 1 & 5 mile radius or Local Authority.
In the left panel select the figure in the Ward column to highlight the stock owned by the corresponding organisation. All other markers owned by other organisations will change to grey
Property Data Details
Click a purple stock marker to view the Street View, property information and EPC details (where available).
Show Organisations based on Name or Location
Search for an organisations name or an area at the top of the panel to display to display results on the map. For Location search click on the marker to load the Land Registry Title Data.
When an individual organisation is selected the stock markers displayed will be colour coded to represent the type of Title as shown in the Legend.
Organisation data in the left panel includes Address, Parent / Subsidiary info, Housing Stock overview and key metric graphs.
Search contracts based on the type of work which we break down into ‘Trades’. Contracts are displayed in a ‘traffic light’ colour scheme relating to their expiry date.
