Geocoding is a process used to transform information about a location, such as coordinates, an address, or a name, into a location on a map. By geocoding addresses, for instance, a technician can quickly recognize patterns or discrepancies within the available information or determine best routing or clustering of customers based on certain criteria.
Contours are used to denote elevation or altitude, and depth on a map to determine the features or characteristics of an area. To create contours for an area, an aerial survey is conducted to collect accurate elevation data in the form of point clouds covering millions of elevation points across the area. Advanced Photogrammetry software is then used to generate the contours to present visually on a contour map.
