If you are looking to acquire new GIS data or want your current GIS data converted into another format, Canadian Map Makers provides various GIS processing services, as listed below:
Field data collection (GPS data, photos, descriptions, etc.):
We can run or hike trails collecting data as we go, for later incorporation into your map design.
Grooming of field data:
Using our proprietary software tools and satellite imagery, we can smooth out field collected GPS data into a form which is both visually appealing and spatially accurate.
Conversion between different GIS formats:
Using our software tools, we can convert between most commonly used GIS file types (.gpx, .kml, .kmz, shape, etc).
Conversion of raw GIS data into a publishable format:
We can take a GIS dataset and convert this into an Adobe Illustrator file, pdf file or even a bitmap image.
Conversion of pixel based maps into vector based maps:
We can significantly improve the quality of bitmap based images by doing a full conversion into vector (Adobe Illustrator) format. Old scanned maps can benefit greatly from this conversion, and then be geo-referenced and further improved after the conversion process.
We can take satellite imagery and convert ground features into GIS layers and into a publishable format.
Creation of overlay layers for Google Earth:
We can create custom Google Earth Overlay Layers, depicting any number of different features (e.g. trails, points of interest, park boundaries, land development proposals etc.).
