Applications of Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

GIS is not just an improved, digital version of the traditional paper map, it is much more. GIS involves the collection and analyzing of spatial and other data as they relate to specific geographic entities, rather than simply displaying them on a map. The data related to a property might include the lot area, address, owner’s name, type of house, number, age and gender of occupants, school support, assessment value, type of soil and so on. Intelligent use of this data makes GIS a very powerful tool.

Applications of Photogrammetry

The applications of photogrammetry are widely spread. Aerial photogrammetry relies on aerial or satellite photographs, which are used to create topographic or thematic maps and digital terrain models. Some of the users of close-range, or terrestrial photogrammetry are architects and civil engineers (to monitor deformations or damages to buildings), archaeologists, plastic surgeons, and police departments (to document traffic accidents and crime scenes).

Applications of Geodesy

Geodetic surveying is a process of surveying to determine the size and shape of the earth. This type of survey is suited for large areas and long lines and is used to find the precise location of basic points needed for establishing control for other surveys. The 2D (horizontal) and 3D (vertical) geodetic networks that span the country have been the main tool for positioning needed in mapping, boundary demarcation, and other geodetic applications
