"As just referenced, the use of aerial mapping and LiDAR data has become critical in the generation of accurate and detailed design drawings. In the early stages of a project, when preparing routing plans for a golf course, particularly on heavily treed sites, aerial imagery and topographic data is our ‘road map’, without which we would be working blind. LiDAR data has given me contour accuracy to within 4”. Amazing when you think about it."
Geomatics technology is quickly becoming a crucial investment for golf courses and country clubs. LiDAR, aerial imagery and GIS provide many benefits to the golf course industry including course design, facility management and marketing by giving an all-encompassing view and more control over your course.
By creating a 3D visual of project sites; architects, project managers, engineers, exploration and production teams can make critical operational decisions, manage safety and security, perform financial analysis, and ensure cohesive accurate data is being used, without ever leaving the office.
Web GIS is simply a geographic information system (GIS) that is accessed through any web browser, such as Chrome or Internet Explorer. Modern Web GIS is becoming more accessible, easier to create and manage, cheaper to implement, and completely customizable. Most Web GIS created today can be accessed through browsers on desktops and mobile devices anywhere in the world, and can be updated in real-time. The cost to access data and host a GIS can be as low as pennies per month and customization is completely up to you!
