Seamlessly integrate GIS into your enterprise systems

When implementing or upgrading to a new GIS system, it’s only natural that you will want to ensure the system will fit your existing enterprise environment.

Our team can provide guidance to ensure you have the most optimum GIS environment to support your geospatial strategy and its objectives as well as the current business needs of geospatial data users across the company.

We handle the integration of your server or web mapping system with a range of applications, data vendors and tracking devices including business systems such as Document, Asset, HSE, Property and Financial Management Systems; and dynamic feeds such as vessels, vehicles, assets and weather.

Ultimately, we find the most efficient and flexible structure into which all components of your existing GIS environment can be integrated.

Frequently asked questions about our enterprise GIS consulting service

There are many factors that determine when we can fly to capture your LiDAR data which can impact cost, such as:
* Air traffic control restrictions
* Weather conditions
* Tidal flows
* Angle of the sun
* Availability of the right aircraft and the right sensor for the job

Other factors that affect the cost of your airborne LiDAR survey include:
* Size of the survey area
* Distance of the survey area from air base
* Terrain conditions
* Level of accuracy required (which in turn is influenced by how you intend to use your LiDAR data)
* LiDAR processing considerations: larger and/or more complex data requires more time, computing power and/or human intervention to process.

Like any flight, our departure times depend on the weather.

We must also factor in our current pipeline of work and equipment availability. But if you need your data urgently, we have different options to meet your need. Talk to us about your project and we’ll work out a solution.

With our efficient LiDAR processing system, you can get your data quickly . Most projects take a few weeks to a few months depending on how much data there is, and how many servers are needed to process the data. We can put more servers on the job if you need the data urgently. 

With UAV LiDAR, we can get up to 2000 points per square meter of resolution. With fixed-wing LiDAR we can get about 1-50 points per square meter of resolution, with an accuracy of <10cm. But your project might not need all the data we can get. The level of resolution and accuracy needed depends on the problem you need to solve and how you plan to use your LiDAR data.

We can supply these formats:

TIFF, ECW, RAW (full list coming)

We can translate the data to any format so if your required format is not listed here, get in touch. We can probably deliver in the format you need.

When deciding on whether UAV/drone technology is needed for a project, we consider the location, the size of the area being surveyed, and the resolution required. Some projects don’t need the type of clarity achieved through UAV. Some projects benefit with fixed-wing AND drone LiDAR. What we recommend, depends on the problem and the result you need.

Yes! Geocirrus (link to store) is our catalogue of premium geospatial data. In addition to LiDAR data we have aerial imagery, 3D models and mesh.

We supply the data under AAM’s license or to our clients’ IP.

Once our clients have received and accepted our priced proposal for their project, we initiate a formal project handover. A dedicated project manager talks to our client to clarify that both sides understand the aim and scope of the project. We schedule the appropriate aircraft and sensor to start gathering data, whilst sending regular updates to our clients as each major milestone is reached. Once all the data is captured we send it to our processing team. We process and translate the data into our client’s preferred format, then deliver it via a cloud-based platform or hard disk drive.
