Field data collection (GPS data, photos, descriptions, etc.):

Running to collect GPS trail data

Grooming of field data:

Google Earth data processingUsing 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:

GIS data processing gpx kml kmzUsing 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:

pdf map generated from GIS dataWe 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:

Pixel to vector conversionWe 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:

Google Earth overlay generationWe 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.).
