GIS Conversion Service

GIS (Geographic Information System) services are provided by Drafting Services to a wide range of companies including transportation (road and water), telecommunication, mining, municipal (storm and sewage management) and utility sectors (electricity or power).

GIS is a rapidly growing technological field that incorporates graphical features with tabular data in order to assess real-world problems. This amazing form of technology was developed in 1960, with the discovery that maps could be programmed using simple codes and then stored in a computer, allowing for future modification whenever required. Geographic Information Systems were a welcomed change from when maps had to be painstakingly created by hand; even small changes required the creation of a new map. The capabilities of GIS are a far cry from the simple beginnings of computer cartography. At the simplest level, GIS can be thought of as a high-tech equivalent of a map. However, the storage of data in an easily accessible digital format enables complex analysis and modeling that was not previously possible.

The reach of Geographic Information Systems expands into all disciplines and has been used to tackle problems ranging from prioritizing sensitive species habitat to determining optimal real estate locations for new businesses.

Drafting Services

 simply creates GIS layers to acquire a better understanding of a particular place. The layers of information you combine depends on your ultimate goal—finding the best location for a new store, analyzing environmental damage, viewing similar crimes in a city to detect a pattern, are just some of the possibilities that are opened up by using Geographic Information Systems to improve your business.

The Drafting Services team digitizes drawings, maps, and documents and converts them to vector formats in order to link them with databases. We provide accurate, fast and cost-effective digitizing/vectorization transformation to GIS systems.
