Fieldwork and Digitalization

GRUPO TECOPY has professionals dedicated to fieldwork, specializing in data collection for the Survey. The update of information is, usually, carried out in one of three ways; one: in-field in order to obtain the condition and geographical location of the visible elements; two: in the office or town hall in order to know the deterioration and existing network problems as well as recent works; and three: at the offices of the administrative authorities and companies which manage the different services.

The integration of information into GIS occurs during the digitization process. This can be done using rugged computer, using a map-base and various commercial softwares (ESRI, CAD, Geomedia, MicroStation, etc.) or free software (LocalGIS, GySIG, etc.).

AutoCAD is the basic software used in ARGOS; SHP format data can be incorporated automatically.

The digitalized information, both graphic and alphanumeric, is checked for integrity and topological revisions, guaranteeing compliance with the validations of the Ministry and data consistency in the delineation process.
