A significant part of projects in Ramboll use geographical referenced information, also called spatial data. Spatial data or information can be used for representation of nature or infrastructure such as roads, pipes, buildings etc. But it can also be used for representation of population density and other socioeconomic conditions.
Ramboll uses geographical information systems (GIS) for analysing and handling spatial data. GIS and mapping gives a good representation and overview of the complexity of a project and a good way of making visual communication. Ramboll works with both 2D and 3D representation in GIS.
Through advanced GIS representation is it possible to model and analyse complex problems such as climate adaptation.
Detailed and accurate maps are fundamental requirements for area and volume analysis, project planning and 3D visualisation. The potential cost benefits of good, detailed maps are enormous compared to the cost of producing them.
At Ramboll, we offer a full suite of mapping services, from planning and consultation to finished map products.
Data gathering is a key element of map production. We help our customers determine what kind of data is suitable for their projects, and ensure that all survey data, aerial photography, laser data or satellite data are the very best available.
Our products include digital maps, orthophotos and terrain models. These are constructed and delivered according to whatever standards and formats are specified by our customers.
We look carefully at the quality of existing map data to decide whether additional data gathering is required, so that duplication is avoided and costs are minimised.
