Advanced new GPS mapping devices are being used by Rural Payments Agency (RPA) inspectors this autumn, allowing pinpoint accuracy to within half a metre.

The new Leica CS25 device means the RPA has the most up-to-date technology available during inspections for measuring land. It also has increased digital connectivity, releasing inspectors from burdensome administration and allowing them to work more efficiently.

The RPA’s Information and Technology Director Ed Schofield said:

“We lead the way on digital services but we are determined to be even better. The roll-out of these new Leica devices demonstrates our continued determination to reduce costs and improve our customer service by offering more and better digital options.

“We are giving our inspectors the latestGPS-based technology which will improve the quality and accuracy of our mapping, and which in turn will improve the accuracy of the payments our customers receive. “Improving our technology shows just how dedicated we are to achieving improved value for money and working at maximum efficiency and effectiveness across the Agency.”
