SoftDig® is equipped with Total Station surveying equipment, handheld GPS, antennae, and desktop CAD/GIS software. Using this equipment, our GIS and Survey Specialists are capable of producing high quality utility maps. The antennae we connect to our GPS units allow us to produce shapefiles accurate to 5 cm post-processing.
Whether using traditional survey methods, or using GPS survey, the experts at SoftDig® are capable of providing the highest quality CAD/GIS deliverables. While we frequently use traditional survey methods to produce deliverables, our mapping grade GIS deliverables are growing in popularity. There is a small drop in accuracy between the two, but this allows us to provide utility mapping of large sites in much less time than necessary using traditional survey methods.
The GPS/GIS services provided by SoftDig® are still produced with precision accuracy down to 5 cm, and it allows us to provide clients with an array of GIS products to our clients (e.g. maps, Google Earth compatible KMZ files, and geodatabases). The accuracy and variety are both important, because the work our clients do are often important to the improvement and development of social and economic climates on local to global scales. Setbacks on such projects can have major consequences, so the additional data allows our clients to proceed with their projects with confidence.
The eminently accurate CAD/GIS outputs produced by SoftDig®, attributed to the decisive work of our employees, is useful in many ways. These services SoftDig® produces have been used in property management, real estate, infrastructure improvement, and various other markets. We proudly provide these services in aid to clients’ decision making, conservation, and safety. SoftDig® is happy to be valued as experts in the utility locating field, and to be providing highly accurate deliverables to depict the adept work of our field analysts and technicians.
