Geographic Information System:
A geographic information system is defined as an organized collection of hardware and software designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate, analyze and display all forms of geographically referenced information. The primary characteristics of a GIS are that it provides a system within which graphical and non-graphical data can be integrated. Further, a GIS tools to access the data easily and formulate queries to retrieve data based on either the graphical attributes or the text attributes. In addition to the basic capability of information integration and retrieval, a GIS can also be carrying out spatial analysis and proximity analysis.
Today, the number and verity of application for GIS are impressive. The amount of geographic data that has been gathered is staggering and included volumes of satellite imagery collected from space.
Local governments use GIS for planning, and zooming, property assessment planning. Resource managers really on GIS for fish and Wildlife planning, management of forested, agriculture and coastal lands; and energy and mineral resource management.
GIS supports the daily activities of automated mapping and facilities management (AM/FM) with application for electricity, water sewer, gas, telecommunication, and cable television utilities using capabilities such as load management, trouble call analysis, voltage drop, base
analysis, leak detection and inventory.
Demographers use GIS for target market analysis, facility sitting, address matching and geo-coding, as well as product profiles, forecasting and planning.
How Uniglow Performs:
Uniglow Works GIS with the integration Five of Components:
Hardware, Software, Data, People and methods
Hardware is the computer on which GIS Operates, At Uniglow we are having 15 no high configured Pentium III machines as stand-alone and LAN networked.
AutoCAD map 3 for digitization
Arc/info: Arc/info’s name is derived from the capability of the software to represent graphical data (Arc) and textural data (info). The graphical data, attribute data Represented in Arc/Info. At Uniglow we use the Arc/info for the same.
Arc view: Arc View, a powerful tool that brings geographic information on desktop and gives power to visualize, explore, query and analyze data spatially. At Uniglow we use the Arc view for the same
Data: The most Important component of GIS is data .this is generally two types Geographic and related tabular data . Geographic data is Base Maps, Business Maps, Environmental Maps and General reference Maps etc, Related attribute data is as supplied by the client, the quality out put relies on the quality input ( data) supplied by the client
People: At Uniglow, great emphasis is laid on the individual. Beginning with recruiting not only the ‘right’ person – with the required knowledge (like interpretation of the images) and training, but also people with the right attitude to finding and nurturing the talents in each member once they have become a part of the Uniglow family.
Methods: Uniglow offer skill in wide range of GIS projects, which covers most of the user needs with standardized methodology
