The Minnesota forest dept. Has embarked on a project to scan all the land record documents generated in the last 7-8 years along with details of the properties of the area like foliage, the amount of green cover, type of trees located, water bodies, etc. After the documents getting scanned, they’ve to be indexed so that they can be retrieved later at an opportune time whenever necessary.
This is where data management services come into the picture. After identifying the coordinates on a map, it becomes essential to create a database of the same. For instance, if a forest ranger tries to search for a particular water body in the woods & wants to know the latitudes & longitudes of the same, he should be able to retrieve it by using certain tagged keywords. This is a function of data management services.
Geo-referencing is crucial & indispensable when using aerial and satellite imagery, as it is used for mapping and explains how other data, such as the GPS points are related to the description. Highly essential & important information may be contained in data or images that were produced at a different point in time. This data can be used to analyze the changes in the features under study over a period. Different maps use different projection systems, which, with the help of Georeferencing tools are combined and overlaid with least distortion. Georeferencing can be utilized, for instance, to establish the relationship between social survey results based on postal codes with other geographic areas such as census zones.
At print2eforms, we support your Geographic Information Systems (GIS) by providing back-end support data tools for collating & collecting data. We also help in Geo-referencing of files & coordinates with our data management services.
