GIS Services

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are a great platform to bring together data from different systems and sources to allow users to better understand, analyze, and interpret geospatial data. EDSI has been involved with a number of highly successful GIS implementations based on the Autodesk MapGuide platform. These implementations include traditional parcel data systems for county governments and campus-wide information systems to manage networks and infrastructure.

GIS Hosting as a Service

We have come to realize in our lives and businesses that it doesn’t always make sense to do everything in-house. As the availability of high-speed internet access and remote tools increases more and more organizations are opting to have data hosted and managed off-site. The advantages include savings on systems and IT personnel, along with remote access from any location. At EDSI, we have invested in the servers and storage and have the personnel on-site to both host and manage your data.

Data Collection, Importation, & Site Development

EDSI can meet with your team to develop a strategy to address your needs for bringing data into GIS. Our GIS application engineers are highly experienced at converting your existing data to robust spatial data. We work with your staff to convert paper drawings and data sources to accurate digital data. We can also assist with converting your existing CAD and other formats to accurate, geo-referenced GIS database layers. EDSI can build your spatial source data through digitizing, scanning, and file conversion. We also use proven geo-referencing and interpolation techniques to assure the best possible fit for your data. Quality control is of utmost importance, and EDSI staff members perform quality assurance monitoring and checking on all data collection.

Using Autodesk Infrastructure Map Server or MapGuide Open Source, EDSI can theme and format your data to provide a first-class experience for users of your GIS site. MapGuide is a stable, mature platform for publishing spatial data to the web. Our software development and web skills allow us to develop custom searches and reports to meet your specific needs. Once your site is completed, EDSI can host it for you on our secure enterprise-class servers, or assist with configuring the site on your own in-house server. Data maintenance can be performed by EDSI engineers, by your in-house staff, or in combination. The choice is yours. EDSI has the skills, the experience and the tools to bring your site to completion accurately, on-time and cost effectively.
