SPATIAL DATA


Using GPS, camera, photos, and hiking and biking, we collect field data

Field Data Collection

We have a proven track record of quick, efficient, and accurate data collection. Our collection methods, developed in-house for each individual project ensure quick turn-around time and the best quality of data.

We love using OpenStreetMap, open source software, and open data.

Open Data

We are experienced in leveraging crowd-sourced and open data sources to reduce the costs of your map project. Why reinvent the wheel when we can make use of existing datasets.

CODE


Custom GIS plugin written in Python for QGIS

Custom GIS Plugins

Using Python, the most popular GIS programming language, we create customized tools to fit within your existing GIS environment.

HTML and Python were used to create this custom web tool

Web-based Tools

This utility contractor was manually converting GPS coordinates received by other subcontractors. A simple data conversion tool brought all the relevant data into Google Earth without the need for GIS software licenses or training.

Compiled and packaged software for your GIS needs

Standalone Software

Fully independant processes on your desktop or server can collect, process, or manipulate data within your environment. We work in Windows and Linux environments, with most SQL databases.

Guiding Principals

We believe in Open Source

With collaboration across multiple fields and around the world, a solution built on open source can not only save you licensing costs, but can respond to your changing needs and be fixed, modified, or enhanced far faster than being tied into a proprietary software stack.

We believe in simple, elegant solutions

No longer is it acceptable to purchase a monolithic commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) system to meet a simple need. Tightening budgets and faster-changing workflows and technologies demand a modular, flexible system that can quickly and efficiently meet your needs.

We believe your data is untapped.

Your organization has data. That's great! Now the challenge is unlocking the intelligence buried within. This means building the inter-relationships within your data and extracting the valuable meaning.
