GIS (Geographic Information Systems)
GIS (Geographic Information Systems):
Designed to store, manage and analyse data that can be linked to a spatial location, Geographic Information Systems have changed the way businesses manage their assets.
Being able to view a clear visual representation of your data enables you to make smart decisions and streamline workflows. GIS is solely limited by the lack of data (more data = greater potential value).
As an established provider of Survey Data to the Rail, Highway and Construction industries Severn Partnership has the knowledge, experience and equipment to capture, catalogue and analyse large sets of Quality Geospatial Data, Measured Safely and Delivered Professionally On Time.
Using our Mobile Mapping system Pegasus:Two we can safely capture large volumes of accurate 3D geospatial data from the safety of a moving vehicle, whether it be travelling on Road, Rail or Water. Imagery from 7 onboard calibrated cameras is georeferenced to 2cm accuracy and synchronised with a dense 3D Lidar Point Cloud, creating a rich 3D geospatial dataset for interrogation by our dedicated GIS Team.
Our GIS team can take your existing information and collate with new, providing you with a comprehensive up to date Geospatial Database. A variety of analytical processes can then be applied, allowing us to deliver clear and precise information in an array of formats.
Collected asset locations can record unique attribute detail. Asset data can be updated easily and shared across multiple users. For example, this data can be used to manage the asset for maintenance purposes, highlighting those that need repair or replacement.
Applications of GIS:
Asset Management – Catalogue assets safely and efficiently, shared between colleagues/contractors. Keep maintenance records up to date and in the relevant hands at the right time.
Business Analysis – Identify strategic geographic locations when considering expanding and highlight focus area for marketing.
Environment Mapping – Keep accurate record of the natural environment, compare surface data with subsurface geological maps and other national datasets to find trends or anomalies. Map physical barriers or defences for impact assessment.
Infrastructure – Manage miles of Highway, Rail and Utility information captured using safe efficient techniques. Identify how potential improvement plans may impact land ownership boundaries or active assets.
Cartography – Produce aesthetically pleasing maps whilst keeping the data accurate and relevant. Communicate your message quickly.
Renewable Energy – Locate potential development sites by identifying available capacity within a DNO’s network. Constrain national dataset and local site features in line with planning guidelines. Demonstrate the potential impact of a proposed development within its local environment.
Planning – Find key locations for development and identify a sites best options by comparing its location with a variety of datasets including, residential and commercial property values, community facilities and transportation links. Use this data to produce clear, visually pleasing maps to demonstrate the benefits of a potential development to the local planning board.
ArcGIS software showing georeferenced calibrated 360 deg imagery from severn partnerships Pegasus:TWO. Overlaying the image, are point features showing lamp post locations. These point features have been selected from the point cloud with an accuracy of sub 10mm, enabling easy ‘asset management’. The points selected can be bespoke to client requirements.
This is an image of a point cloud screenshot taken from data collected via Severn Partnerships Pegasus: TWO. The point cloud consists of millions of points of georeferenced calibrated data, creating the picture you see. This data is highly accurate, and records the exact position and dimensions of assets. It creates a georeferenced 3D world of data enabling easy extraction for asset management.
