Revolutionary Mapping

Jun 5, 2012

Imagine being able to achieve highly accurate mapping, whenever and wherever needed, even in less than favorable weather conditions (wind, light rain, cloud cover) where conventional photogrammetry simply won't suffice, while keeping both feet firmly on the ground. All this is now available at a reasonable price.

GIS4C is proud to announce the introduction of the Gatewing X100 revolutionary aerial mapping and surveying system. The drone holds a 10 Megapixel camera and can fly up to 45 minutes to picture 1,5 square km. The raw images are digitally processed in the highest quality orthophotos with a pixel resolution of 5 cm. The photo maps are geo-referenced and can further be used in Arcgis. For further info see http://www.gatewing.com

The foundation Uniek Curaçao receives a software grant from ESRI Inc.

This month the foundation Uniek Curaçao has received a software donation from ESRI Inc.
This enables Uniek Curaçao to build a Geographic Information System (GIS) in which different types of geographic data (maps) can be entered and analyzed. Uniek Curaçao will use the GIS for projects, publications and guides in which maps are used.
One of these projects is the Nature & Culture Guide of Curaçao, the successor of the popular Hiking Map (2001). This new guide will make use of the GIS by mapping the whole island of Curaçao. The Geographic Information System will also be used for educational purposes and projects for schoolchildren, tourists and citizens. The growing awareness of the unique locations and nature on Curaçao is a prime focus of the foundation. The foundation is very much involved in the conservation of there areas. The software grant from ESRI Inc. is a big step forward in the realization of the projects.
