3D Planning & Virtual Surveys: No Travel Required!
Municipal Mapping Has No Boundaries
At Compass Geomatics, we manage projects more efficiently due to our ability to work with large datasets in three dimensions. From the planning stages to project completion, working in 3D saves both time and money.
Viewing maps in 3D allows all vested parties to make decisions quickly where previously a field visit would have been required, possibly even incurring the high cost of a helicopter.

The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo sits atop the Province and spans some 68,000 square kilometres. It is, as most of you are probably aware, a Municipality that is rapidly growing from the opportunities provided by the Oil Sands.
With this large amount of urban and rural activity occurring at the rapid pace that has taken place, the governance and provision of safety in the Municipality can be a challenge.
AltaLIS has certainly been an important partner for the Municipality.
AltaLIS LiDAR15 DEM Client Testimonials
"The LIDAR15 product has become the standard topographic survey input for all ESRD – Water Infrastructure natural flood and dam breach modelling projects. Its high quality and low cost make it an extremely valuable resource for ESRD (Environment and Sustainable Resource Development).“
Clayton Weiss, P.L. (Eng.) Oldman Basin Infrastructure Technologist Environment and Sustainable Resource Development
"We were looking at the idea of having DEM built for our municipality at a cost of around $50,000 so when the LiDAR15 became available, for 10% of that cost, it made real economic sense to purchase it."
Therese Morris, BGIS, GISP GIS Coordinator II Mountain View County
“The AltaLIS LiDAR15 DEM product helped us provide detailed analysis throughout the plains region of the Red Deer River Basin flood mitigation study. It was quick, reliable and as always seamlessly delivered with speed."
Darren Hycha GIS Specialist Stantec
“We at CCI Inc. find that the LiDAR15 product provided by AltaLIS is a very cost effective solution for our clients. It provides the necessary resolution for Engineering design purposes and the file size helps us to simplify our data management requirements.”
Michel Laflamme Drafting Manager CCI Inc.
“We use the LiDAR15 datasets from AltaLIS on several energy and utilities projects for planning and site selection. The price is very reasonable and the available coverage is extensive. The product is easy to use, allowing us to identify point elevations, generate contours and profiles and make 3D models for virtual site visits.”
Shane Eubank GIS Manager Compass Geomatics Ltd.
"For many of the project we work on, LiDAR15 DEM can be of adequate quality for the precision required. Whether its planning for upcoming work, or becoming the backdrop to high precision data, LiDAR15 DEM can save both time and money. Recently our team worked on a project that was several townships in size, obtaining true LiDAR data was out of the question for the entire site, however using LiDAR15 DEM for the surrounding landscape and High Definition Scanning to capture the areas of heightened interest, allowed us to prepare a quality product at a reasonable cost."
