The Application of GIS in Civil Engineering Projects is Limitless

Modern engineering projects need all the tools available to them. GIS mapping applications allow engineers to manage and visually communicate data, turning it into intuitive, easily understood reports and plans. In MapRight, precise site data and information such as field surveys, topography, soils, images and videos, wetlands and water features and more can be combined into a single, interactive map. With this visual, integrative approach, engineers can better plan projects, enhance spatial analysis, relate projects to their broader geographic context, help different organizations collaborate better together and foster better development strategies. The best part is that you don’t have to be a GIS professional to take advantage of MapRight’s functionality; our platform takes minutes to learn.

Create and Manage Your Own Databases

MapRight understands the need for your maps to be more than simply a geospatial tool; you need software capable of tracking key data points you find valuable and guiding your project decisions. Our database builder can be used for any kind of data set: equipment and infrastructure, land parceling, resource management and more. You determine the feature groups, the items included and the details tracked about each item, so use cases can be as unique as your circumstances.

Share Your Maps With Project Managers and Other Stakeholders

As versatile as interactive maps are in MapRight, it doesn’t mean much if you can’t share them. To help stakeholders better understand your project, we have several sharing options available for you. You can embed interactive maps on a webpage, you can export maps as PDFs and you can share them via email or other messaging services. And don’t worry, when you edit your maps in MapRight, they automatically update everywhere else. Sharing maps has never been easier than with MapRight.

Our Georeferencing Tool Brings All Your Plans Together

MapRight allows you to overlay a survey or site plan on top of an aerial map. With the ability to control opacity, you’ll be able to see through all the layers. To make sure that orientation and alignment are spot on, you’re able to pick three custom control points to affix your georeference image on top of your map. On a single MapRight map, you can even add multiple georeference images and incorporate other GIS layers and features. Consolidate your details and visualize it all at once.

Here’s an Actual MapRight Map

With eight different GIS base layers, nearly two dozen MapRight layers and countless styling and customization options, the application of GIS in civil engineering is endless. Your MapRight maps can be as simple or complex as your projects require. No matter what they look like though, we guarantee your maps will always be as easy to read as they are to share. If you want to see what MapRight is capable of, just take a look below at one of the 2.5 million maps that have already been created on our platform.
