gis weed mapping
G&T Weed Management’s GIS Weed Mapping system has become an integral part of our business operation.
Investing in this technology has allowed G&T Weed
Management to achieve accurate mapping of native grass lands, bushland forest riparian areas and council maintained road sides for both invasive weeds and vermin.
G&T Weed Management recognises the value of geographical data and has invested in technology and techniques using a powerful GIS mapping tool to collect valuable data to highlight your projects or property’s points of interest. This allows for easy planning and reporting.
Desktop and mobile GPS technology is used to develop accurate management plans based on raster layers such as aerial photography and topographic maps of your site.
We have invested in the latest hand held GIS data mapping tablets and software that have enabled us the ability to develop and implement data collection forms and produce maps to substantially accelerate field data collection.
Using the latest software and motion 12.5 hand held 12 inch tablets, G&T Weed Management can accurately record points of interest, whether that be new weed infestation or vermin, that might be completely unknown to you. We can create specialised GIS maps, nesting box maps and inspection records.
Alternatively, if you have already mapped and area you would like inspected you can simply email us a file of the data (TAB or SHP file formats preferred). Using our weed mapping software along with other GIS data collection devices will allow us to accurately find the recorded spot with minimal effort saving you client valuable money.
