GIS and Asset Information


We help clients create, maintain, update and analyse asset-based information within a Geographic Information System (GIS), achieving cost and efficiency savings in their asset management.

Our clients can improve their approach to managing their property assets using GIS, by creating an accurate up-to-date geo-spatial mapping record of all external property assets.

This enables them to procure, manage and deliver maintenance services using accurate information.

GIS data capture and the process of incorporating it into a Geographic Information System can be a time consuming and therefore costly exercise

However, if the process and ultimate requirements are defined correctly at the outset, the information contained within the GIS will have practical use providing commercial value over a long period of time. Our experience across a wide range of industries really adds value to defining the process and specification and we will work with you to ensure your GIS data capture delivers the commercial value and longevity you seek.

Working with pre-existing data

GIS data capture involves either using pre-existing data or the creation of data from scratch. We typically work with pre-existing data including satellite imagery, aerial photography, height models, paper maps, scans, plans and numerous databases.

Data collection, verification and validation

We are also unique in offering a site surveying service including GPS Topographical Surveys or Laser Surveys to capture information for land-based projects or physically verify the accuracy of existing records. This can help fill the gaps in existing data, or to provide new measured records.

Our GIS data capture services are platform independent, and we have produced data for use in nearly all available GIS systems.


Creating Maps from Satellite Imagery

Creating Maps from Satellite Imagery

We have considerable experience of interpreting satellite and aerial imagery and creating mapping products using raster or vector data sets that can be stored in a variety of GIS formats.

Depending on the level of detail you require we can capture physical features such as transport networks, buildings and boundaries both physical and political.

Each feature can be attributed with specific properties, for example, we could create a map of transport and drainage works including the location of culverts and bridges attributed with length, width, material type etc.

As part of the project briefing process, you will define the map’s purpose such as navigation, strategic decisions or analysis so that the Base Map can be created to your exact specification and meet your ultimate requirements.


Creating Geo-Referenced Maps

Geo-referencing is the process of associating images or data with a location so that it can be viewed and analysed in conjunction with other geographic data.

We are experienced in creating highly detailed bespoke maps in a format that has value and longevity. By integrating client specific data we can help you visualise current relationships, patterns and trends which you can then use for analysis and communication.

Our geo-referencing service can also turn historical catalogues of information into a very useful digital format, which can be quickly accessed and easily interrogated.


Land Terrier - private record of your land and property holding

Creating highly detailed land terriers

We have a wealth of experience in creating highly detailed land terriers and bespoke maps. By integrating client specific data we can help you visualise the extent of your property boundaries as well as current relationships, patterns and trends which you can then use for analysis and communication.
