GIS is a system for capturing, storing, analyzing and managing data and associated attributes which are spatially referenced to Earth, in other terms it is an information system capable of integrating, storing, analyzing, editing, sharing, and displaying information which is geographically referenced (establishing a relation between raster or vector images to map projections or coordinate systems). GIS is a tool that allows users to create interactive queries (user created searches), analyze the spatial information, edit data, maps, and present the results of all these operations.
It is also known by different names like Land Information System, Environment Information system, Geospatial Information System etc.
Areas Of Work Geological Mapping Geomorphological Mapping Lineament interpretation and analysis Land Use Land Cover (LULC) extraction Digital Elevation Model (DEM) preparation using different types of satellite imageries Linear features mapping Mapping of two dimensional features like the polygon features Mapping of point features like the landmark features etc. Hydrological Mapping
Thematic mapping of areas for facilitating for a better decision making. These outputs are used for working on assignments in sectors like hydro-electric project planning, Oil and gas sector, urban development projects, mining and mineral exploration, etc. AGS also works on projects like Vegetation Mapping, Forestry Mapping, Watershed Management, Gas Pipeline utility projects, Preparing GISbased geological database and Pipeline Utility Planning Feature extraction from different paper maps to convert into a digital format.
