We see a geomatics workflow and suite of services that moves from data capture (linking with field surveys, aerial surveys, data conversion), data management, data analysis, and information presentation (linking with Web or mobile based mapping and reporting tools). These elements are supported by initial project scoping and specification, and on-going support and training.

Derived from the first natural resources GIS centre in Ireland - the Trinity College-based Natural Resources Development Centre - Compass Informatics has years of experience in the design, development and implementation of GIS, IT and the combined geomatics area.
