GIS (Geographic Information Systems) « Seisland Surveys Ltd.

At Seisland, we have worked diligently to develop the most advanced GIS services in the industry. Our GIS department offers a full suite of services including:

  • MAP BUILDING:  Our GIS department can build maps for a variety of applications. Using our extensive reference datasets as starting points, our map building team provides excellent efficiency for your hourly investment.
  • PLOTTING: We provide full-colour map plotting using the latest HP plotters.
  • REFERENCE DATA SETS:  At Seisland, we have assembled, scaled and compiled many public and reference datasets such as AltaLIS, I.H.S., and various government data (both raster and vector) into excellent integrated datasets which you can access by contacting us, or through subscribing to our web-enabled mapping services. This ensures map building is at its greatest level of efficiency – saving hours of digital “cutting and pasting” and helping you (and us) meet those tight deadlines. In some cases, we can also provide permission to access our private data archive, with maps dating back to surveys as old as 1994.

Enhanced Surveying Technologies « Seisland Surveys Ltd

Survey unusual environments accurately and cost effectively: This means we can survey all types of terrain, even mountainous, heavily canopied areas where GPS technology would not be optimal due to poor satellite reception. GPS Surveying: In cases where satellite reception is accessible, Seisland utilizes the Leica Viva GNSS and GX1230GG dual frequency receivers which can provide centimeter accuracy depending on the satellite reception.


Advancing – Line Pushing and Field Mapping « Seisland Surveys Ltd

We utilize the latest mapping programs such as ESRI, OZI and Mapwel software, along with the appropriate components of the following data: digital topographic, orthophotos or satellite imagery, Government Digital Elevation Models or LiDAR data – bare earth, vegetation height or full feature, to ensure efficiency in the field.


Preliminary Geophysical Services « Seisland Surveys Ltd

We utilize OMNI 3D Workshop software to design 3D program layouts and work closely with our GIS department to provide customized Preliminary Plan and Permit mapping to meet your requirements. We know that some clients like the familiarity and continuity advantageous in having a contractor providing Preliminary Services through to the Final Survey of their programs.


Field Mapping « Seisland Surveys Ltd

Seisland employs highly-skilled field mappers who can access virtually any terrain – creating superior field culture maps for seismic surveys, construction, pipeline locating, or powerline locating. They carefully scout the program in order to optimally position the lines, building the routes and maps for the GPS units utilized by the line cutting equipment or line slashers.
