GEOSPATIAL (GIS)

GIS is critical in centralizing collected data, whether it is institutional knowledge, on paper, digital maps or in databases. This data can range from cadastral information, design mapping, utility modeling, geotechnical information, inspections, work orders, GPS field collection or any other location based items. It facilitates easy access to this information which allows for custom analysis and reporting. Accessing through a mobile device ensures this data can be viewed almost anywhere.
