Mapping Since the foundation of Global Geobits, one of its main activities has been in the area of digital mapping and GIS Database development, which forms the backbone of any GIS application. We have thus exercised great care in producing our digital/ GIS ready databases applying rigorous and strict QC/QA procedures. Our spatial data is delivered with adequate metadata to insure our clients of the superior quality of our data. We have considered and addressed technical issues such as scales, map projections, and datum transformations, … etc. under the supervision of academic professors specializing in the area of surveying, mapping & GIS.
Our team has covered large areas of Egyptian territory at the following scales: 1:1000,000 – 1:250,000 – 1:40,000 – 1:25,000 – 1:5,000.

Digital mapping and GIS database development has been accomplished through a variety of methods including:

  • Data conversion from paper to digital format.
  • Digital mapping & GIS database development from satellite imagery.
  • Digital mapping & GIS database development from aerial photography.
  • Digital mapping & GIS database development from ground & GPS surveying.

Global Geobits is ready to produce GIS databases for any region inside Egypt that is outside our present coverage as soon as the client indicates the boundaries, scale, and other specifications required for the product.

OutsourcingThe cost of Digital Mapping and GIS database Development services is significantly lower in Global Geobits than USA, Canada , Europe or in Gulf Area while the technical skills are more than adequate. If overseas companies outsource their data conversion, digital mapping and GIS database development tasks to Global Geobits, they can save up to 50% of their present cost.

  • The success of any GIS application starts with the quality of its spatial database. Our experts have good and long experience in DBMS (Spatial, tabular, and image components). Our strong background in surveying and mapping sciences enhance our capability of building feature connectivity models, coordinate/ datum transformations, integration and data merge of map features and attribute data from multiple sources, and the development of digital land base maps.
  • We allocate adequate resources for our outsourcing data conversion tasks to deliver the product on time while maintaining the quality of our services.

Global Geobits Company enjoys very strong background in the area of surveying including:

  • Plane Surveying
  • Geodetic Surveying
  • Total Station Surveying

Global Positioning Systems (GPS)

GPS is viewed as the ultimate dream of any surveyor. Our company has long realized that technology and used it in map production and data collection. GPS is being used in differential mode, RTK, ...etc.

Photogrametry is a well-established technique for topographic mapping. It has developed from analog, analytical, towards digital concepts. Our company is in the process of acquiring digital photogrammetric workstation to widen its ability of digital map production for a wide range of map scales. The system is expected to handle conventional and non-conventional photography taking into account the proper geometrical mathematical models for establishing ground and image relationship. 

Remote Sensing

One of the definitions of remote sensing is "remote sensing is the acquisition of physical data of an object without touch or contact".
July 1972 marked the birth of launching the first earth satellite (LANDSAT). Since then many satellites were launched among which are SPOT, IRS, IKONOSS, QUICK BIRD, ...etc. Global Geobits has used new high resolution (1m) IKONOS and quick bird satellite imaging in producing large scale maps for many cities and villages inside Egypt. Rectification and Geo-referencing of these images were based on GCP's mainly from GPS surveys. Field teams are usually sent to the site to collect relevant attribute data.

Web Solutions
Global Geobits offers innovative GIS solutions designed for the Internet. Web solutions are changing the way organizations communicate and disseminate information. Public agencies and commercial companies can combine GIS with Internet technology for remote navigation, customer services, market analysis, & many more.

Smart Cards

Wireless Identification Systems
Wireless Identification Systems is a generic term for technologies using radio waves to automatically identify people and/or objects. There are many different methods and techniques for identifications including a serial number identifying a person or object. This identification method is stored on a microchip attached to an antenna. The microchip and the antenna together are called an Wireless Identification Systems transponder or simply Wireless Identification Systems tag.

This enables the chip to transmit the information to an interrogator (reader), which would convert the radio wave into digital information, which in turn is passed on to computers that can make use of the information.Smart cards can be used in almost every discipline from tracking cows and pets to triggering equipment down oil wells.

The most common applications are tracking goods in the supply chain, reusable containers, high value tools and other assets (e.g. museum artifacts and library books) and parts moving to a manufacturing production line. Wireless Identification Systems are also used for security (including controlling access to buildings and networks), tracking cargo and suitcases at airports and payment systems that let customers pay for items without using cash.

The possibilities for Wireless Identification Systems are practically infinite and they will creep into our daily lives with an accelerated pace. Examples of where Wireless Identification Systems technology had been used include – but are not limited to:

  • Library and rare book collections
  • Museum artifacts
  • Luggage and cargo at airports and railway terminals
  • Person identification
  • Food production control
  • Blood analysis identification
  • Water analysis
  • Refuse collection identification
  • Road construction material identification
  • Toxic water monitoring
  • Vehicle parking monitoring
  • Valuable objects insurance identification
  • Oil pipe identification
  • Machine tool management
  • Gas bottle inventory control
  • Duty evasion
  • Stolen vehicle identification
  • Production line monitoring
  • Car body production
  • Access control
  • Security guard monitoring
