Case Studies

I am a great believer in giving examples when trying to explain technology and its benefits.  Here are some great ones from the UKCrystal Palace transmitter coverage


Digital Switchover started on October 17th 2007 and involves converting every UK TV transmitter from analogue to digital. The BBC uses GIS data to predict the coverage areas of these transmitters across the UK and so to provide advice to consumers who might need to change their receiving aerials.

I’ve been looking around the Gartner website. You can register and access some excellent free reports (and others you have to buy), written in business language with practical examples. (my big bugbear).  Once you have created an account just use the search capability. They do some excellent work on asset management in utilities. The reports don’t necessarily stay up for long so visit the site regularly.
