Why Us

The Best Multidisciplinary Team in Western Canada in combining innovations in geospatial (GIS, Remote Sensing, and GPS), artificial intelligence (AI), and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technologies to solve challenging problems.

What You Get

Whatever the scope of your work, SGA experts can meet your needs.  We strive to meet our customer’s need by providing great technology and unmatched services delivered within a flexible and cost-effective business model.

Note: Most samples as below use open data. Our high-quality sample maps, technical reports, and case studies are available upon request.

1. GIS and Mapping Services

High-Quality Professional Maps

Traditional Mapping: Our specialists have used GIS software to produce over 6,000 high-quality professional maps for atlas books, ESRI Calendars, journal publications, government technical reports, urban planning, and GIS projects.

Next Generation Mapping: With advancements in Geospatial, AI, and UAV technologies, our specialists have expanded services from traditional 2D mapping to 3D visualization and high definition (HD) mapping. Our advanced data acquisition technologies and automated map production with Geospatial AI gives us the ability to convert high resolution images into HD vector maps and have made us one of the front runners in the next generation of mapping.

2. Visualize Data in 2D and 3D Over Internet

Quickly Visualize Hundreds of Thousands of Features in 2D and 3D

We build compelling web apps that unlock your data’s potential with interactive user experiences and stunning 2D and 3D visualizations. We  create stunning applications that can be used to rapidly visualize hundreds of thousands of features in 2D and 3D.

3. Spatial Data Acquisition

Right Tool, High Accuracy, Automation

Every project has different requirements and data must be carefully gathered to meet the specific purpose. The acquisition of high-quality spatial data is one of the most important and expensive factors in the success of any GIS project. 

To ensure that we meet every need efficiently, we leverage our partnerships to access the most up-to-date geospatial imagery and to collect high-resolution imagery with state-of-the-art technology. Our data acquisition and data analytics are automated. GPS data collection is performed using both handheld GPS and custom mobile applications.

4. Spatial Analysis and Modeling

Select the best locations and More...

After assembling high-quality geographic data from many data sources, we can provide advanced spatial analysis and modeling. For example, we can find the ideal location with features that match your requirements: (1) Location for a second store: You are ready to expand your business by opening a second store. You have found a potential location. But would it be a good place for a second store? We can give you the answer. (2) Location to invest in a house: Many first-time home buyers believe the physical characteristics of a house will lead to increased property value. But in reality, a property’s physical structure tends to depreciate over time, while the land it sits on typically appreciates in value if it is in a good location. We can help you to understand how prospective land location values influence property returns.

5. Detect Patterns and Predict Future Events

Gain Statistical Insights and More...

To derive useful insights from data, data must be analyzed from the past to the present to uncover patterns and predict future patterns. For example: Determine when the COVID-19 pandemic will peak. Combine crime locations with societal factors to visualize patterns that help law enforcement and city planners to determine RCMP attachment locations.

We help people see data in new ways, discover insights, and unlock endless possibilities.
