This pilot partnership, announced on 19 July, will see HMLR join OS at its Geovation Hub to encourage and support innovation and property technology (PropTech) businesses.
Geovation is based at a dedicated location-data lab in London that supports and enables open innovation and collaboration across many sectors. The Geovation mission is to expand the use of location and land and property data in the UK’s innovation business community.
(UK) Business Minister Lord Prior said: ‘The Geovation Hub is already making important contributions to a wide range of industries, including telecommunications, energy, transport and water management. Location-based data has a crucial role in future technology development and innovation from driverless cars to the Internet of Things.’
