Geographic information systems (GIS) provide a powerful tool to manage and display geographically referenced digital data. A typical GIS allows layers of data to be presented on, for example, a topographical base map, thereby facilitating data interrogation and interpretation. Efficient data management, linked to a GIS allows multiple users to manipulate, interpret and present data in many formats, commonly over the internet, while at the same time maintaining data integrity.
What is the benefit?
Effective GIS, backed by robust data management systems, provide verified data for a great number of uses; from displaying the location of boreholes and plotting the extent of contaminant plumes in contaminated land investigations at individual sites, to managing data for environmental impact assessments and supporting asset management for companies with global portfolios. To borrow from a well used phrase, the GIS, is only as good as the quality of data that goes in. With sound data management and competent operators, a well run GIS has an almost infinite number of uses; saving time, money and effort.
