GIS Services

Optimised information management system add value to information flow processes by providing targeted insight. Data collection, data capture and data manipulations lie at the core of the GIS system service.

We collect spatial and non-spatial data from a variety of sources such as drawings and general plans, digitizing from orthophoto and topographical maps, co-ordinates and survey data from Global Positioning System (GPS). The data is analysed, edited and projected in line with each clients needs, for integration into their information systems. This approach provides our clients with an interactive, business-specific information tool.

Every project starts with an extensive analysis of the organisation’s current data management processes to gain an in-depth understanding of how the tool can be used to improve existing systems. We identify the data used, any challenges experienced and the specific output requirements of the organization to recommend improvements for an integrated system and technology that will work more effectively in support of daily business operations and management.

Our flexible application development capabilities allow us to customise the system to suit the exact requirements of the business.

Disaster Management

Disasters have far-reaching effects on both environments and communities. Geospatial data is an area of expertise that is used very effectively in disaster prevention, mitigation and management.
