Georeferencing - GeoPDFsGeoreferencing refers to the process of embedding geospatial coordinates into digital image files. It relates aerial, satellite or geophysical imagery to geographical positioning.
At Cascade, we use GIS software to produce georeferenced maps in PDF format (GeoPDFs) for use with mobile device applications. Users can pinpoint their location on our maps through the GPS on their mobile device, facilitating rapid and accurate target identification without relative measurements to local surface features. We therefore make georeferenced field maps available immediately after survey completion so sampling and coring can proceed as soon as possible.
