Traditionally, paper documents have been used to clarify and store data. A wide range of industries including utilities, land records, and transportation have previously kept their data in a paper format. These paper documents are frequently old, fragile, illegible, vulnerable to destruction or misplacement (even theft!), space consuming, and not viable for useful automated data analysis. The scanning and vectorization process allows these paper documents to be brought into the digital environment and converted into GIS or FMIS data layers.
Unique data such as parcels, utility pipes, town/county boundaries, shorelines, and street centerlines or internal features like walls, doors, electrical or HVAC infrastructure, etc. can all be accurately vectorized into a GIS or FMIS from these original documents.
Spatial Systems can help your organization create high quality and highly accurate GIS or FMIS data layers from the beginning. Data such as street centerlines can be created to accurately reflect digital orthophotography or county boundaries can be defined by current zip code partitioning. Building electrical systems can be vectorized and the outlets associated with specific breakers in the panel box can be identified.
An organization's data analysis is only as good as the data they have. Outdated GIS or FMIS data layers provide organizations with inaccurate and time wasting analysis. As infrastructure changes, so does all of its associated features. Outdated data quickly leads to inaccuracies. Using the latest digital imagery, Spatial Systems can modify the location, placement, or boundaries of features to better reflect their new or current spatial dimensions.
The usefulness and quality of your data is not only affected by the spatial accuracy, but also by the values associated with the data. Organizations cannot determine the importance of spatial data if there is no linkage to the non-spatial values that describe them.
Spatial Systems can improve the quality of your data with our attribution services. Data fields can be customized to fit an explicit need of your organization or they can be created to follow a set of nationally defined standards in a specialized domain.
Both our vectorization and attribution services are checked with Quality Assurance/Quality Control methods to ensure the highest accuracy and quality of work for our clients.
