OMNNI’s team of professional land surveyors, technicians and support staff offer accurate, efficient and comprehensive surveys and maps. Our staff stays abreast of advancements in technology, which is evident in the quality of projects that are completed and frequent recognition by the Wisconsin Society of Land Surveyors at annual conferences for their expertise and quality of work. Our projects range from surveys of large transportation corridors to land planning to Certified Survey Map (CSM) development.
Geospatial services involve the analysis of data based on its geographical location or its position relative to other objects. With the “always-connected” mindset of today’s technology, up-to-date maps are becoming a critical component of everyday life. OMNNI’s geospatial department assists clients with both the authoring and consumption of map data.
OMNNI provides the following surveying services to public and private clients:
- Land planning
- Highway right-of-way plats
- Boundary surveys
- CSM development
- ALTA-ACSM surveys
- Legal descriptions
- Construction staking
- Site development
OMNNI assists local government entities with creating digital mapping of their infrastructure assets, including water, utilities, storm and sanitary sewer systems, electric and gas utilities, transportation systems, trees, and anything else that needs to be inventoried and maintained. Mapping can be created from archived record drawings or it can be collected in the field using survey or mapping grade GPS. The mapped features are stored using industry-standard data models, which can be viewed in a variety of web applications, mobile device applications and hardcopy maps.
The most accurate data is obtained when it is recorded as close to the source as possible. OMNNI’s mobile GIS data collection systems allow the user to record the precise locations of objects in the field, and enter the relevant information, measurements and photos while still at the object. The data collection applications can be used on a mapping-grade GPS, a notebook or tablet, or even a mobile phone. These mobile data collection applications can greatly streamline infrastructure inspections, routine maintenance operations and other inventory tasks.
Until recently the spatial components of analysis were either ignored or oversimplified by a quick visual inspection. However, with the advances in GIS technology, spatial analysis can be applied in a quantitative, scientific manner. How many houses are served by this branch of a storm sewer? What is the travel time to the nearest hospital? How many houses will be able to see the proposed water tower? These are all questions that can be definitively answered using spatial analysis techniques.
