GIS Data Collection
Survey data can be directly entered into a GIS from digital data collection systems on survey instruments using a technique called coordinate geometry (COGO). Positions from a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) like Global Positioning System can also be collected and then imported into a GIS.
GIS software adds intelligence to spatial data, whether the data is generated in the field with GPS or remotely with lidar and photogrammetry. Surveyors enter raw data, measurements, and field sketches directly into the GIS, enabling them to efficiently manage your data in a central repository (personal geodatabase) with other spatial information, streamlining workflows and improving productivity.
You can GIS software and technology for collecting, importing, converting, and storing spatial measurement and computational fabrics for agencies and private businesses of any size. They integrate computations (COGO, traverse least squares, etc.) and preexisting networks, as well as import spatial data, feature classes, and relationships.
With GIS software, you can bring data straight from the field into a geodatabase in a seamless workflow and take GIS data back into the field via a data collector or laptop computer. GIS software is customized to best meet your needs by optimizing functionality needed to complete a job.
