A geographic information system (GIS) is a system that creates, manages, analyses, and maps all types of data. GIS helps users understand patterns, relationships, and geographic context. The benefits include improved communication and efficiency as well as better management and decision making.
Effectively communicating the complexities of location-based data can be a challenge.
Often there is a need for specialist software to view and interact with geographic datasets.
LDT offers online web mapping portals that enable end-users to make the most of accurate geospatial data collected as part of a survey or inspection activities.
The advantage of a web-based system is the simplicity of just using an internet browser – on a PC or mobile device, to leverage highly detailed geographic data.
By centralising the geographic data in the Cloud, Our customers and end-users can be confident that they are looking at the most up-to-date version. This ensures project deadlines are met and quality maintained.
Whats the process?
It all starts with the data. We consider what the end-user is wanting to achieve by putting data into a web mapping environment. Once the schema is defined, we will match the appropriate mapping technology to fit the client budget and use case.
What software do we use?
For high-end web mapping and GIS, we prefer to use Mapguide, a fully-featured online mapping platform. For simpler jobs, we can offer hosted data using Google Maps and Bing Maps.
