Geospatial Data Technologies

The power of geolocation to bring order to the data landscape.

Geospatial data: Understanding why everything happens somewhere

Geospatial data technologies help us understand the world around us. Some 95% of the information we produce via our connected devices has a spatial component. ADASA helps make sense of the measurements we make, analyses relationships that may exist, and how they may be conditioned by geolocation.

Our Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping or location intelligence applications turn geospatial data into useful information. Platforms sensors such as satellites, drones and crewed aircraft, capture images or 3-D data. Mobile GIS software allows the capture, manipulation, analysis and consultation of spatial information outside the office. Data and systems consultancy is available, too.

We then collect, manipulate, and ensure the integrity of this geospatial data in our spatial databases or geodatabases, which includes vector information (points, lines and surfaces) and raster coverages (scanned historical cartography, satellite scenes, LIDAR, orthophotographs and more).

Next comes building the necessary topology to facilitate the analysis of hydrological and hydraulic networks. Elevation, distance and surface can be incorporated into the analytical processes (proximity analysis, superposition, statistical and temporary analysis).

Satellite images undergo radiometric corrections, obtaining signatures and generating thematic legends, vegetation indices, crops coefficients, spectral classifications, and multi-criteria decision trees combining complementary information.

GIS Desktop applications allow manipulation and treatment of geospatial information, with the creation of geoprocessing tasks performed with Python.

Some of the uses for Geospatial Data Technologies:

  • Water Data Management and Analytics
  • Resources Monitoring Services
  • Flood Early Warning System
  • Water asset digitalisation and advanced management
  • Monitor urban catchment drainage pollutants
  • Leakage detection systems
  • Numerical weather forecasting systems
  • Automated groundwater levels and salinity
  • Crops monitoring

Customisable solutions are developed and integrated with a wide range of systems, including desktop, web and mobile applications, particularly open source technologies and proprietary products.

Our Geodatabases operate in various database management systems, we deploy cartography servers, and publish secure map services defined by the OGC, produce metadata and launch cataloguing applications for spatially-referenced resources.


  • Improve decision making with an enhanced understanding of territories using data trends and patterns.
  • Use spatial data technologies to predict values at locations without measurement equipment using interpolation techniques.
  • Present and communicate complex issues with our geospatial software.
  • Data and systems consultancy based on spatial data technologies.
  • Customisable solutions for systems, including desktop, web and mobile applications.
  • Interoperability, connecting the physical and digital worlds through the integration of geospatial data with business data.
  • Mobile Geographic Information Systems (GIS) geolocation software for the capture, manipulation, analysis and consultation of spatial information outside the office.
