GIS - when imagery becomes knowledge.

What is GIS?

You may even not know but look around, and you can find GIS everywhere – in more and less obvious ways. From online maps to air traffic control, from parcel tracking to land use analysis, geographical information systems (GIS) have come to enhance every major aspect of our economy, including water industry. GIS is no longer a standalone concept or system, it’s a geospatial way of working that has firmly embedded itself in our lives as a response to the growing need for information.

How does it work?

Geographic information systems transform complex information into focused geographic insights and intuitive maps and figures. GIS technology can be used for scientific investigations, resource management, and development planning, among other things. For example, a GIS might be used to find wetlands that need protection from pollution. GIS turns your imagery into point clouds and 3D meshes inside ArcGIS, where it can be extracted, modeled and shared.  You can easily control and share this information through cloud, web and mobile technology, to both your field workers, control stations, clients and the public.
