For many years, ASTRUM has provided with expert Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technical support and mapping services. GIS technology has become an essential tool for any planning or decision making that involves geographic data. Although we specialize in environmental uses of GIS, our capabilities extend to any GIS application that requires data collection and conversion, database creation, mapping, data modeling and analysis, and custom interface design and development. We have the equipment and knowledge to handle your GIS needs.
What is GIS?
GIS is a system of hardware and software used for storage, retrieval, mapping, and analysis of geographic data.
The GIS allows you to view information in a graphical format and add and remove layers to produce precisely the map desired. GIS is accurate, reliable information. This information can be map data or it can consist of non-graphic or "attribute" data that provides additional descriptive information about the features on the map.
GIS gives useful information about the world around. It shows where things are and lets identify trends and patterns that we are just not able to see when the data is simply columns of numbers.
Equally important is that GIS is accurate, reliable, useful information in the hands and on the desktops of the people who can use it and need it the most. GIS brings together the map file room and all related information in an organized and concise format to everyone's desktop.
