CIVIL GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS

A geographic information system (GIS) is any system that captures, stores, analyses, manages, and presents data that are linked to location. GIS is a special-purpose digital database, in which a common spatial coordinate system is the primary means of reference. Comprehensive GIS requires a means of:

  • Data input from maps, aerial photos, satellites, surveys and other sources
  • Data storage, retrieval and query
  • Data transformation, analysis and modelling (including spatial statistics)
  • Data reporting such as maps, reports and plans

GIS Expertise and Experience include:

GAUSS has recognized the opportunity to apply this technology to initiate and develop a Bentley Map Software tool that can assist in the facilities management of complex and technologically advanced infrastructure such as process plants, power stations and other industrial developments.

  • Using the Bentley Map together with Microsoft Access and SQL Server
  • Accessing GIS with web browser tool
  • Redrawing input from existing drawings to CAD and linking to GIS
  • Converting data between different Geodetic and Local Coordinate systems
  • Development, administration and maintenance of the GIS database
  • Linking existing and new electronic data to GIS
  • Populating existing databases to the GIS and creating linked objects to location infrastructure
