Geographic Information Systems and satellite technology

Geospatial Technology involves GPS (global positioning systems), (geographical information systems), and RS (remote sensing). This technology offers a radically different way in which we produce and use maps required to manage our communities and industries.

Today there are thousands of geospatial applications in use. Organizations, agencies and companies throughout the world are using the technology to transform manually produced maps and associated descriptive records into powerful digital databases. Once a tool that was affordable only to the largest organizations, geospatial systems have become a cost-effective option for even the smallest organizations.

Satellite Imaging Corporation (SIC) provides high resolution satellite imagery and services for analysis and to support Geographic Information System (GIS) and other mapping and research .

Our company specializes in satellite imaging collections, producing seamless orthorectified imaging mosaics, and for many industries using CAD and GIS applications utilizing high, medium resolution mono and data.

Our imaging, Geographic Information System (GIS), Global Positioning System (GPS) and geodesy experts are experienced in extracting, manipulating and supplementing satellite images and imaging data. These projects provide invaluable information to a broad spectrum of industries.
