GIS Data Capture & Conversion

Data is not always available in its most suitable format and may require conversion into a more suitable or useable format for GIS use. This may require the capture from paper maps into a digital format, or conversion from other formats such as AutoCAD into GIS format. gi Perspective are able to offer a full range of GIS data capture and conversion services including full colour scanning and digitising.

Data capture and conversion services include

  • Scanning and geo-referencing of large paper maps
  • Conversion from image files to geo-referenced imagery
  • Conversion from raster to raster, raster to vector and vector to vector formats
  • Conversion from one coordinate system to another
  • Data capture of features from existing resources, both textural and spatial
  • Geocoding to convert street addresses into spatial locations

gi Perspective can capture or convert data ranging from one-off files, to offices full of paper documents. We have worked with a wide range of companies and agencies including the European Commission, the Environment Agency, Local Authorities and Forestry Commission. We also offer advanced GIS database design and metadata creation.
