GIS

Summary:

Skills:Capturing of spatial data in a form of structures & services (houses/buildings,
roads, power & communication lines, pipelines etc.) by way of heads-up digitizing using high resolution
Orthophotos & LiDAR Laser Points for identification of such structures and other features such as electric
& telephone poles and power lines. Management & manipulation of the captured spatial data as well as
its interpretation to convert the data into meaningful useful information. Use of colour models to aid in
digitizing of terrain features such valleys, rivers etc.
Major Courses/Trainings acquired:
• Geographic Information Systems (GIS); knowledge on using ArcGIS, Bentley MicroStation,
Quantum GIS and ILWIS softwares as for digitizing (spatial data capture), thematic map
production, up-dating of maps, capturing of attribute data and data interpretation.
• Using the U-smart application to aid in digital mapping in the Micro-Station Programme.
• Using of the LiDAR-Imagery to aid in identification of features & their height, ground and nonground
features such as buildings, trees etc.
• Editing & Checking of LiDAR Imagery, Classification of LiDAR points by class such as ground,
non-ground, powerlines, vegetation, buildings etc.
• Air-operator: trained on how to collect/capture raw orthophoto-image and LiDAR data from airborne
survey from an aircraft as an air-operator
