Geographic Information Systems
A Geographical Information System (GIS) is a computer system for capturing, storing, integrating, manipulating, analyzing, and displaying positional data of features on the Earth's surface. Maps of varying types are overlaid with feature layers, each of which are then linked to an exact position on the graphical image of the map and organized to be studied and to perform statistical analysis.
MNC develops and implements these systems, dealing with complex issues such as: multiple data sources, multiple platforms and mapping systems, and access by diverse groups of users (accountants, management, engineers, surveyors, support staff). Once correctly set up, a GIS can be used for government, planning, local authorities, public utility management, environmental, resource management, engineering, and distribution purposes.
Data is our specialty. Format selection is the client's choice, as is platform. Whether the client chooses an ESRI system, GeoMedia, MGE, MapInfo, AutoCAD, MicroStation, etc. or a combination of software platforms, MNC will build the data to suit.
