Online Mapping Tool for Zetica

Custom Online Mapping Tool to help detect unexploded  WWII Bombs


Zetica is the UK’s most trusted Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) specialist and holds a vast database of records, of potential UXO hazards, including Unexploded Bombs (UXBs) from World War Two (WWII). Zetica previously had produced a series of UXB risk maps as static images, and were seeking an improved online mapping tool or application to give prospective developers the ability to browse and download site-specific maps on the relative level of risk provided by WWII bombing.


The new mapping application integrates seamlessly as an <iframe> into Zetica’s web page. This allows users to pan and zoom around the map and search by City, Town and Postcode. A Legend references the map features and Bomb Density Risk bands. The download form captures prospect details before delivering a PDF map via email.

The solution uses Geoserver, with map functions controlled by Javascript and PHP scripts. We assisted with the integration of the online mapping solution into Zetica’s web page, by liaising directly with their web masters.


The online mapping tool on Zetica’s website was well received and we received positive feedback from Managing Director, Mike Sainsbury: “Just a quick note to say thank you, all is working well and clients seem to appreciate the new format.”
