Geographic Information Systems
GIS is essentially a digital map, built in layers. The map layers can include features such as roads, streams, property ownership, pipelines and base maps such as aerial photography or satellite imagery, which are used as a foundation. More than just a pretty map, each layer of the GIS is a DATABASE. Map layers can be overlaid and cross-referenced to answer questions about locations and spatial relationships.

Global Positioning Systems
GPS is based upon a constellation of navigation satellites and GPS receivers can tell you where you are on the planet. When it comes to mapping, GPS can be used as a real-time input device to map points, lines and areas. You can even enter descriptive information about locations, including notes and digital photos. All of this GPS-mapped information can be viewed within GIS.More about GPS
Aerial Visual Intelligence
Digital Orthophotos, Full Motion Video (FMV) and High Definition 3D terrain information from LiDAR and other sensors provide a new perspective for your GIS. Captured from either manned or unmanned platforms, these sources provide realtime situational awareness and are a revolutionary new data capture tool for GIS. Through our aerial services division, FLIGHTLINE GEOGRAPHICS, we offer a variety of image capture options for GIS.
Mobile GIS includes the ability to stay connected to your main GIS, while collecting new or updated map information in the field. Imagine carrying a handheld GPS with your GIS base maps as a background display, while seeing yourself moving around the map. Then navigate to and/or edit map features resulting in a GPS field inventory. The resulting information can be posted or uploaded directly to the GIS.More about Mobile GIS
iOS and Android GIS
The smart phone and tablet revolution has provided yet another way to access and use GIS. You can publish map services that can be acessed by the public or a more restricted group of users such as your clients or internal staff only. Since these devices already contain a GPS, a high-res screen display, a camera and wireless Internet, all you add is a mobile app and the map!More about iOS and Android GIS
On-Line & Cloud Delivery
Traditional data delivery on hard drives and other physical media is still standard. Web-based image services and the Cloud make delivery faster and more convenient for many users. GIS can directly access these on-line services on the desktop or in the field via mobile devices including iOS and Android tablets and smart phones. You CAN take it with you!More about On-Line & Cloud Delivery
