Services

 

Contracting GIS services appeals to many organizations operating in the current business environment. Both the public and the private sectors wish to improve their GIS performance. Contracting GIS services to consultants takes advantage of the portability of their collective tactical GIS experience, their programming expertise, and their contacts.
Some organizations currently with GIS capability are having difficulty keeping up with current programming and hardware requirements. Additionally, the highly specialized GIS staff required can be problematic to establish, supervise and maintain.

Contracting GIS services to consultants can place organizations at the top of a progressive learning curve immediately, at a relatively low cost.

GIS Support

Forest Management operations throughout Ontario require extensive GIS support.

This GIS support includes the ongoing development of a variety of specific purpose map products, and database development. Complex annual and 10-year plans are developed for all forest management operations.

MITIG provides this type of GIS support representing a large part of Ontario. This GIS support is delivered by MITIG staff, both on-site for the client, and it is also done (remotely from the client) using leading edge telecommunications.

MITIG offers map development and digitizing services to both the Provincial government and the forest industries. MITIG is accredited by the Ministry of Natural Resources OMNR) to produce the new Ontario Base Map / Forest Resource Inventories (FRI). MITIG is also approved for the Natural Resources Values Information System NRVIS) provincial automation projects. These large data bases require strong project management controls, and technical skills.
