GIS Data Capture & Conversion

Data is not always available in its most suitable format and may require conversion into a more suitable or useable format for GIS use. This may require the capture from paper maps into a digital format, or conversion from other formats such as AutoCAD into GIS format.  Lovell Johns is able to offer a full range of data capture and conversion services.
