RMSI, a global IT services company, announced that they have recently developed an exhaustive cartography geo-database covering entire North America for one of its clients Universal Map – publisher and distributor of geographic information for the United States.
The project demanded deep-domain technical expertise and the effective integration of popular GIS and software platforms such as ESRI ArcGIS, AutoDesk, Adobe, Coreldraw etc. Different sources both vector and paper, and reference material were used for selective integration and creation of an accurate GIS database. Since the project involved developing a very large amount of spatial data with many data layers using a variety of GIS platforms, automation and customization of processes was done to meet the timelines and maintain the accuracy levels.
Apart from cartography enabled geo-database, print-ready files in PDF and EPS formats were prepared and delivered to the client. Universal Map received a versatile cartography enabled geo-database which with slight modifications, can be re packaged as wall / fold / flip maps, regional map products and country map products.
