Mapping and Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of geographical data. The key word to this technology is Geography – this means that some portion of the data is spatial. In other words, data that is in some way referenced to locations on the earth.
GIS Mapping Tools and Geographic Analysis
Geographic analysis tools are the most valuable component of GIS software because they let you analyze the geographic components of your data. Omnie has worked with leading organizations, building first of a kind enterprise web application for area and incident mapping. Our innovative work in virtualized 3D visual solutions and 3D data information systems has allowed our clients to make pioneering moves.
The Power of Mapping
A geographic information system (GIS) lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends.
GIS benefits organizations of all sizes and in almost every industry. There is a growing interest in and awareness of the economic and strategic value of GIS.
- Cost savings resulting from greater efficiency.
- Better decision making.
- Improved communication.
- Better geographic information record keeping.
- Managing geographically.
Drive Decision-Making in Real World Applications
Most people think GIS is only about “making maps”. However, governments, businesses and people harness the power of GIS because of the insights of spatial analysis.
Before GIS, cartographers mapped out the land using paper maps. Over the years, we’ve seen a gradual shift away from paper maps. Instead, users build digital maps with computer-based spatial data.
