Getting excellent GIS output by quality control and rigorous survey data management!
The best geographic information systems (GIS) are only as good as the data they use. The input data must be complete and correct for the project concerned. For instance, as scales become smaller, geodetic compensation becomes more important to take account of the earth's curvature.
Flatworld GIS designers and developers look beyond the confines of digital data and IT systems to ensure that survey teams capturing the initial information have the right brief. An important part of GIS surveying services can therefore be provided by the Flatworld team. This includes the correlation of existing records to precisely define points of origin for use in land surveying, aerial photography and LiDAR surveying.
