Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing Service


We offer technical support, advice and technological solutions in the area of geographical information based on free technology, thereby contributing to the use of free software and open knowledge.

We design and produce statically available maps for publication in articles, on webpages, in brochures and in other paper media, as well as the cartography needed for projects in any discipline.

We develop maps for web environments that allow the dynamic visualisation of geographical information and interaction with data. We incorporate advanced features to facilitate information communication and management, such as a search option, data filtering, report generating, data downloading and a content manager. 

We process and we analyse geographical data from any project or research: 

  • Model analysis and trend identification
  • Spatial distributions and relations  
  • 2D and 3D scenario simulations
  • Time series analysis
  • Location and optimum route analysis
  • Environmental and landscape impact analysis
  • Network analysis
  • Geostatistics 

We offer support in data model designing and geographical database creation for subsequent use, display or analysis. 

We design and implement Geographical Information System projects. 

We process, analyse and interpret satellite images to understand the environmental phenomena occurring in the world: we look for the most appropriate satellite images for a study and apply analytical processes such as index calculation, corrections, band combinations and re-classification methods for obtaining some of their results. 

Any territory-related project or study requires the integration of different cartographic sources, both reference and thematic: topographic, thematic cartography, orthophotomaps, LiDAR, digital terrain and elevation models.

We advise on the cartographic requirements of the project, look for the necessary cartography through the different geographical data portals available on the network and, if necessary, adapt and transform it to integrate it into the project.

Based on postal addresses, geographic coordinates or other spatial references, on a map we locate the elements or events generated from searches, fieldwork or data capture with GPS. We can also extract location data generated from activities on social media (Twitter, Flickr, Wikipedia, etc.).

We use positioning systems (GPS) to determine geographic location and value data.
