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