Geospatial Services

GIS integrates all types of data, the traditional geospatial data like imagery and vector features but also tabular data, unstructured data and real time data. GIS extracts all types of data into layers to create a common language of maps and scenes, models and tools that can be used by analysts to power applications.

Custom Mapping: Choose the paper size, extent, scale, basemap, operational layers, spatial grid, and labels. Our process begins with client consultation and extensive research followed by design and data overlay before final production and exporting to PDF, JPEG, and TIFF files. As an option we also can provide vectorized files (Adobe Illustrator or Encapsulated Post Script) files for easy editing.

Our business is located in the great state of New Hampshire. When we are not “Mapping” we are “Hiking”! A business name that represents the two areas in which we spend most of our time. We our passionate about mapping and the great outdoors! That is why we partnered with National Geographic to market and sell their trail maps and guides. Shop Map-N-Hike

Gearing up to start and finish a GIS project can be a very expensive endeavor. Many organizations try, only to run into road blocks caused by schedules, budgets, or difficulties finding the right people. Map-N-Hike can help with our flexible Rent-a-Tech service. Whether you have a specific project or need on-call assistance, we can provide experienced GIS staff to perform a wide range of GIS-related tasks (onsite or remotely) based on your specific needs and budget. We can assist with data maintenance, analysis, map creation, application development, software installation and configuration, database design and more. Don’t have any GIS staff? Through this service, Map-N-Hike can function as your organization’s GIS Department.

Simply book an online map making session and we will go over the options available for your custom map. Options typically include paper size, map extent, scale, base map, operational layers, and labeling.

The two kinds of transformations are geographic and vertical. The geographic (horizontal) transformation is shifting between the two Geographic Coordinate Systems (GCS). You may have to do a vertical transformation at the same time, which is shifting between some ellipsoidal or geoidal view. A particular transformation goes from one GCS to another GCS.

Every project is unique and requires meeting with our clients and asking questions about their request. The questions allow us to discern what types of data will be required, how to the data will be formatted and the output will be delivered. All initial consultations are no charge until after both parties agree on deliverables. If you are not sure of how to approach your project and simply would like ideas on how to generate a certain output, contact us and let us know.

Custom Mapping Considerations

  1. The size of the map (paper size) e.g. 8 1/2 x 11
  2. The size of the extent (map view)
  3. The scale of the map view e.g. 1:24,000 | 1″ = 2,000 ft
  4. Spatial Grid (Lat/Long, UTM, Custom)
  5. Basemap (Google, Bing, Esri | Topographic, Aerial, Custom)
  6. The data sources (USGS, USDA, State, County, Local, Private)
  7. Budget

The extent and scale will determine the size of the output. The availability of data sources and time required to collect, model, store, and prepare the data determine the project time. Some projects require a compromise between any one of the five variables listed above. Before submitting a request take a moment to document who the map is for and how it will be used and note the 5 criteria above that will be required to generate your custom map. We may recommend going with a stock map to meet the project requirements, due to restraints from any of the five items listed above with budget be the primary reason to determine the feasibility of the project.

This is determined after the initial meeting with our clients so we can get an idea of the type of project and make certain we have all the data necessary to execute the clients requirements. Once we have the information for the project we can give the client and estimated time of delivery, typically 2-3 days. Depending on the project length, we also provide status updates and examples of how the project is progressing.

The project requirements will determine the hourly rate. Hourly rates range from $40 – $85 an hour. If the project is geared towards a GIS Technician the hourly range will begin at $40 and if the project is more inline with a GIS Analyst or Developer, the hourly rate will range from $65 to $85 respectively. Custom mapping starts as low as $20, while size and level of detail will dictate the cost of each custom map.Once the initial project requirements and deliverables have been agreed to, the total cost of the project can be determined.
