Geokinetic Systems Inc. is in its 10th year of business. Founded as ESRI partners to market GIS, and CAD solutions it quickly became focused on the development of specialized programs and consulting in this market. Over the last 7 years we have concentrated on creating and marketing ArcView extensions for clients around the globe, particularly theEngine for ArcView, our flagship program. Our products are in every country where people use GIS. Since the availability of ArcMap we have developed solutions around this as well as creating our new EV8 for ArcMap.
Located in Vancouver, Canada, where advanced GIS technology has long been applied to many industries and governments, we have a unique view into current methods and user needs. This experience sharpens our focus when we design new tools and methods. We are skilled with GIS mathematics, known as ?vector math?, blended with current programming procedures.
This is a typical Microstation CAD 'fc1' drawing containing 19 layers of forestry data, including forest cover, property lines, roads, rivers, annotation or linkage text and many other items. In this example, the objective is to prepare attributed forest cover polygon, and polyline themes. But this could be any typical CAD data, parcels, pipelines, contours, etc.
This program is spectacular. Ignore it at your peril because your competitor won't. EV8 is an extension that transforms ArcMap into a fully comprehensive, lightning fast, and very easy to use "power" GIS. It has an extensive suite of tools and GIS methods. These are designed to work together with the result that there are hundreds of procedures and very quick methods available.
