Westminster City Council

Despite having fewer surveyors and more sites to inspect, Westminster City Council completed its 2015 planning survey nearly twice as quickly as in previous years and increased employee productivity by 20%. It made this remarkable achievement by using Esri’s ArcGIS Collector App to develop a new mobile data collection solution.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • ArcGIS Collector App allowed the council to survey 17% more sites with a 20% smaller team
  • The council’s annual survey was completed 1.5 months more quickly than before 
  • Use of the mobile data collection app has led to greater data accuracy and accountability


"ArcGIS Collector App enabled us to survey 17% more sites, with a 20% smaller team, in nearly half the time. It has definitely contributed to cost efficiency savings for the council."

Chris Lawrence, spatial analyst, Westminster City Council
