GIS Expertise

Our GIS Expertise is your advantage. We have experience in Location Based Services, Various Software Packages and GIS Applications as well as Web GIS and Database Design.

Experience with Location Based Services

Amalgamated has over 10 years experiences in the provision of Location Based Services (LBS) utilizing GPS Locators. Amalgamated's LBS is used to track vehicles, cell phones and equipment and tracks thousands of units in Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and Grenada. The Amalgamated system, while using third party mobile locator units, is designed around software that was created by the company's programmers. This software development was done to an international standard. The Amalgamated Inteltrack solution however has the advantage that it was design to be open sources; as such it allows integration with a variety of software packages and can work with different types of hardware. This provides a degree of "future proofing" as the software will accommodate changes in technology and customer requirements.

In establishing its Inteltrack Location system, Amalgamated created a digitized map of Trinidad and Tobago and developed its own neural network of Trinidad and Tobago road system, which has been combined into Geographic Information System (G.I.S.) software giving it built-in intelligence. In view of the fact that the software has been created by Amalgamated staff it is very easy for us to modify the software to accommodate customer requests. We regularly discuss the operation of the software with our customers and the feedback obtained is used to enhance the features of the software. In addition where a customer requests a specific features such customization is undertaken for that specific customer. If a customer's request for a specific feature would benefit all users of the software then that new feature is made freely available to all users.

Experience with GIS Applications, Web GIS and Database Design

The G.I.S. Department has 12 years of experience in developing G.I.S. applications, and a combined experience of 20 years in designing and developing databases.  The Department has transitioned from publishing web maps via the use of ArcView's object-oriented programming language. Avenue, to developing feature-rich web mapping applications with the use of OpenLayers and ArcIMS as display tools, MapGuide Open Source and ArcSDE as deployment platforms, all while maintaining MS SQL version 7 to 2008 as back-end databases.  The introduction of OpenLayers and ArcIMS tools have enhanced the web mapping applications beyond mere map display tools, and support the following functionalities: web editing; geofence creation; marker creation, 2-D and 3-D rendering.  The use of MS SQL Spatial has supported not only the storage and querying of spatial data, but also supports the algorithm for finding least-cost routes in a network and the geolocation of closet features.
