Data for GiGL Partners

GiGL Partners have access to full resolution data from their geographic area as part of a regular data exchange and via specific data requests to the GiGL team.

Data exchange

The data exchange is the quarterly delivery of data to organisations with a service level agreement (SLA)SLA holders receive some of their own data, in a digitised form, alongside other datasets from local and national organisations or individuals.

London-wide organisations receive data for the whole of Greater London, but most organisations receive data for their local area of interest plus a 500m buffer.

When an organisation sets up a SLA with us we send them all data holdings for their area. We accept new datasets at any time, and our team works throughout the year to enter these into the GiGL database. Every quarter, we send copies of any updated spatial data to each of our SLA holders.

Partners sometimes integrate these data into their own systems or use them to perform their own searches using MapInfo or ArcGIS.

For more information about the GIS data see our data and interpretation guidance.

Specific requests

Partners can also ask us for tailored data searches or help with queries. Partners can contact us with a request, and we then send them relevant data or mapping within ten working days and deduct the time taken from their service level agreement time budget. For some partners, this ad-hoc basis method of accessing data is vital.
