GIS offers insights into place and conditions

The practice of Geospatial Information Systems – or GIS – is all about understanding place. It can be used to discover the unique characteristics and challenges of any potential site or area.

At Opus we have been using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and associated geospatial technologies like GPS, remote sensing and web mapping for a number of years. Our skills and capabilities in this area are called on for a wide range of projects that depend on accurate analysis and data management.

We invest in both the technology and our people, and have GIS specialists throughout our global network. As well as applying GIS technology to all kinds of infrastructure projects, we work with our clients to build the capability of their people so they are better equipped to get the most from geospatial technology.
