Geospatial Value: Linking Topographic Data to Design
Topographic data is an important piece when it comes to the design process. Very places on the planet are completely flat. Housing, roadways, utilities, pipelines and many other features are oriented on the landscape with respect to topography. Even offshore infrastructure such as subsea telecommunications, oil wells and fisheries respect changing topography. Read More
