For over 25 years, the team at Bosys has successfully implemented and managed many Enterprise Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and mapping projects on multiple platforms for the public and private sectors in Canada and around the world.
Spatial data analysis provide timely answers to questions in a simple and intuitive visual spatial interface that integrates data from disparate sources. It is essential in the decision-making process and provides the means to evaluate available options, such as suitability, capability and more, to allow for better predication and forecasting of events, or the consequences of factors affecting a certain location.
Geocoding is a process used to transform information about a location, such as coordinates, an address, or a name, into a location on a map. By geocoding addresses, for instance, a technician can quickly recognize patterns or discrepancies within the available information or determine best routing or clustering of customers based on certain criteria.
Data modelling is the process of designing and arranging data in a particular way to best represent geography, business processes and events. GIS data models, such as vector data, raster data and tabular data, are used to visualize information and build scenarios of possible situations to inspect their impact on benefits for a certain area being investigated.
Contours are used to denote elevation or altitude, and depth on a map to determine the features or characteristics of an area. To create contours for an area, an aerial survey is conducted to collect accurate elevation data in the form of point clouds covering millions of elevation points across the area. Advanced Photogrammetry software is then used to generate the contours to present visually on a contour map.
A profile, which is created from a point cloud containing millions of accurate XYZ points, is yet another product generated from high accuracy and high-resolution aerial surveys. A profile is a plotted line denoting grades and distances, and typically depths of cut and fill; depicting the vertical plane section along the longitudinal horizontal plane, expressed in elevation or gradient.
