About the trainers:
Ilhan Coskun is currently a Geospatial Consultant working in the Consultancy and Technical Services team in Ordnance Survey. He has over 40 years’ experience working in different roles within Ordnance Survey, including 17 years in the field capturing data on the ground. His current role, which began in 2006 following a period in the sales team, has seen him work almost exclusively supporting local and central government. This was firstly under the Mapping Services Agreement, Public Sector Mapping Agreement, and now the Public Sector Geospatial Agreement (PSGA), providing support in the use of OS data to wide variety of government users. He has worked with local councils, in that he ran several seminars in 2011 under the PSMA when local councils were first admitted to the agreement. These demonstrated to them the benefits of using OS mapping in their regular day to day operations. He won a Customer Service Award in 2012 for his standard of support to government customers.
Denis Payne has been a Parish Councillor for 25 years (and is currently chair of Histon & Impington Parish Council), and involved in the GIS & digital mapping industry for 30 years, most of it in Local Government. He’s been involved at the national level since 2007, and was instrumental in getting access to OS mapping for Local Councils. Denis is now the nominated Subject Matter Expert to the Geospatial Commission for Local Councils. He authored the NALC “Digital Mapping Toolkit” in 2018, and continues to work to help Local Councils make good use of and get the benefits from digital maps, particularly those available from OS under the PSGA (Public Sector Geospatial Agreement).
