| We offer GIS technical competencies in the following
|Open Source Geospatial Software Solutions
||PostgreSQL / PostGIS spatial database management systems; the UMN MapServer
web mapping environment; and scripting UMN MapServer map files.
|Spatial Systems Review and Analysis
||Spatial systems review; business requirements analysis; feasibility
studies; functional specifications; and quality assurance.
|GIS Project Planning
||GIS project scoping, task identification, time-line and costs
|Systems Documentation and Training
||Preparation of detailed project documentation and implementation of systems
|Geodatabase Design and Implementation
||All aspects relating to geodatabase design and implementation,
predominantly in the ESRI software environment.
|Geodatabase Data Modelling (UML)
||The Unified Modelling Language (UML), used as a CASE Tool, provides an
easily understood diagramming notation for the design of the ESRI geodatabase schema. The benefits of designing your geodatabase using UML are two fold.
Firstly it brings a discipline to the process of creating geographic objects, requiring you to scrutinise definitions and associations. Secondly, it
provides geodatabase schema documentation as diagrams able to be understood by developers and managers alike.
|Geodatabase Tuning and Administration
||Database management approaches and techniques to insure that your
geodatabase environment is performing optimally.
|Asset Management / Geodatabase Systems Integration
||Database design and modelling methodologies to enable tightly-coupled
integration between asset management systems, property systems and geodatabase environment.
|Spatial Data Translations
||The extraction, transformation and loading of spatial and attribute data
from one data format or system to another.
||Undertaking complex geoprocessing tasks on spatially enabled data sets.
|New Zealand Coordinate Transformations
||Migrating vector and raster spatial data sets between the different
geodetic datums and map projections in use in New Zealand
|Custom geocoding data models (using FME®)
||The application of FME® to develop custom
geocoding data models from road centreline address range data. The new data models deliver performance gains on geocoding requests that are 15X
faster than traditional methods and more data rich.
|Cadastral Shift Adjustments (using FME®)
||The application of FME®
(Safe Software) to develop a number of specialised and automated routines to undertake New Zealand Cadastral Shift Adjustments (conflation processsing).
Utility Services, District Plan and a number of other commonly maintained GIS data sets are derived from, or related to, an underlying survey parcel land
base. Historically the survey parcel land base, or Digital Cadastral Database (DCDB), was created by digitising hardcopy record sheets. Between 2000 and
2002, in the main centres of population and land development, LINZ refined the spatial definition of cadastral boundaries to survey accurate standards. The
result is the LINZ Core Records System (CRS). With the uptake of CRS, those groups with responsibilities for the ongoing data maintenance of other
dependent GIS data sets were confronted with the need to shift these layers in such a way that the spatial relativities are retained with the CRS, as they
were with DCDB. This conflation processing is able to be implemented without corrupting any of the topological relationships inherent
in the original data sets.
||GeoCompliance is a customisable
software solution to manage the validation and exchange of compliant engineering as-built information between a Data Provider and a Data Custodian.
GeoCompliance uses the Geographic Markup Language (GML) as an intermediary data validation and delivery format, thereby providing a stand-alone
solution that functions independent of the CAD and GIS software platforms being used by
the respective data supplier and data custodian organisations.
