The definition of a geographical information system is any system designed to capture, analyze, and manage spatial and geographical data. The real-world applications might be obvious, in the sense that it helps with global positioning systems, or GPS, which is utilized by everything from the military, to traffic conditions, to restaurant delivery. GIS data actually represents real objects, and the technology is open source, as well. GIS can actually refer to a number of different technologies, processes, and methods.
One of the ways that this technology is applied is in topographical models, which require a complex analysis of spatial data and analysis. Of course, it is not hard to see how GIS also applies to logistics for companies both big and small, the insurance sector, telecommunications, engineering, and management, as well.

GIS helps us understand the world around us, and gives us as much data about our location and the world around us, allowing companies to be more efficient and productive than ever. It helps to analyze spatial and geographical data in a unique way, which is invaluable in all sorts of instances and sectors. The technology has also become more increasingly relevant in the scientific field, as well.
Short preview of routing app: Scope: Estimate Your Arrival Time, Route Planning (Plot, move and delete way-points with ease. Then the app will plan the best route based on the departure time, contour depths and boat settings). I can deliver the depths into the following formats: ASCII, XYZ, DTM/DEM as digital terrain models or contours as shapefile The web app technology stack will be chosen taken into consideration that there will be developed an iOS/Android app based on the webapp. Functionalities: - Find my location - Add points on the map in order to calculate the route on the sea (Plot, move and delete way-points with ease): a) Click the map to set your start position or use current location b) Click the map to set your end position - Plot route (add points on the map and calcul...
HDO has contracted Vortex to provide a 1km by 1km resolution wind resource assessment covering Oman. Deliverables included: - Windspeed at (50m, 60m, 70m … 190m, 200m) - Weibull scale (50m, 60m, 70m … 190m, 200m) - Weibull shape (50m, 60m, 70m … 190m, 200m) - Temperature (50m, 60m, 70m … 190m, 200m) - Density (50m, 60m, 70m … 190m, 200m) - Wind rose The objective of this exercise is to provide HDO with a web tool that at the minimum allows the user to visualise the wind rose data across Oman. The tool will be able to show wind rose graphs and wind speeds at different heights upon clicking on any area in Oman’s map similar to how it is done in the Global Wind Atlas See attached for detailed scope of work- the timeline to submit this work is 1 week f...
