Geographic Information Systems
Asset management is becoming more sophisticated as technology continues to present new solutions to your business challenges. From spatial context, to business-critical forecasting, to asset scenario analysis, a Geographic Information System (GIS) lets you visualize, question, analyze, interpret, and understand data to reveal relationships, patterns, and trends.
As the asset experts, we make sure your GIS brings maximum visibility to your assets, so it can bring maximum benefits to your business.
How Does GIS Work?
A simple five-step process lets you apply GIS to any business or organizational problem that requires a geographic decision.
What is the problem you are trying to solve or analyze, and where is it located? Framing the question will help you decide what to analyze and how to present the results to your audience.
Next you need to find the data needed to complete your project. The type of data and the geographic scope of your project will help direct your methods of collecting data and conducting the analysis.
You will only know for certain that your data is appropriate for your study after thoroughly examining it. This includes how the data is organized, how accurate it is, and where the data came from.
Geographic analysis is the core strength of GIS. Depending on your project, there are many different analysis methods to choose from. GIS modeling tools make it relatively easy to make these changes and create new output.
The results of your analysis can be shared through reports, maps, tables, and charts and delivered in printed format or digitally over a network or on the web. You need to decide on the best means for presenting your analysis, and GIS makes it easy to tailor the results for different audiences.
