Spatial Data

Spatial data for use in a GIS system like ESRI’s ArcGIS or QGIS can be hard to find, access or create.

Our team can either source & acquire existing geospatial databases, capture data layers in the field, or integrate your mapping system with existing spatial data that you may already have in your organisation.

Data Acquisition

Need some spatial data but either can’t capture it or don’t have the man power to capture it?

Seen a GIS dataset or data layer but don’t know where to source it from?

We can help locate & acquire suitable geospatial datasets. We can package it up into a spatial database of your format ready to use.

Even if you’ve located a suitable spatial dataset but found it too costly give us a call. We’ve helped organisations, including Not For Profits, negotiate custom licensing & pricing which has not only saved them thousands of dollars but allowed them better use of the mapping data within their organisations mapping system.

Data Capture

At times no suitable datasets are available from data providers that meets your organisations requirements so mapping data needs to be captured.

GIS Solutions is able to promptly organise the capturing of the the spatial data you require in Queensland or anywhere in Australia.

Whether it be spatial data capture in the field or spatial data digitisation from existing paper based records, we can create the needed GIS spatial datasets promptly and with a high degree of accuracy. We can then supply the mapping data in what ever format you require.

Data Cleanup

While the acquisition of GIS & spatial data from Australian or international data providers can greatly reduce the work in acquiring needed data, many spatial datasets are difficult to use “out the box” due to their inappropriate structure or poor quality of the data. This can necessitate data “clean up” processes needing to be created and applied to such spatial datasets. GIS Solutions has successfully worked with the spatial datasets from many of the leading spatial data providers and is able to assist your organisation in getting the spatial database ready for use in your GIS software.

Many organisation find that after large scale spatial data capture projects errors inevitable crept in. Wether the errors are caused by typo’s, logical errors or spatial errors, these can threaten the validity of a spatial data layers and can cause misinformed decisions to be made. GIS Solutions has created spatial data QA processes for numerous organisations. Our spatial data QA processes are designed to find and fix such errors for good so you can be confident in the information your GIS software is providing.
