GIS

Building roads, schools, hospitals, wastewater treatment plants and other public services requires enormous investment. Successful projects need feasibility studies to determine the best approach; in the past, amassing the information was a manual and laborious process. A variety of maps, different documentation and committees of experts were used to gather information available to take the best decision Sometimes, poor information led to suboptimal decisions.

Geographical Information System (GIS) is the future of mapping. Planners in utility companies, public services and governments are taking advantage of the new ability to gather information from traditional sources into one silo to make informed decisions founded on exact, accurate and up-to-date information.

GIS goes far beyond latitude longitude: Traditional map features such as roads, historical points and buildings can be overlaid with additional graphs and maps to build a 3D picture of the terrain where the user is, and not exclusively above ground. Geological charts, soil surveys and piping networks can be supported to create a rich visualization on which to base decisions.
