Information Systems

We have proven expertise and client trust built on key enterprise-class systems design & delivery. With web, mobile, data management, and infrastructure expertise, our systems support mission-critical processes, complete national infrastructures, and international regulatory compliance.

Location Technologies

The location tag in data allows us to map, manage, view, analyse and share in ways that extend our understanding of our world. Importantly, understanding data using location supports evidence-based decisions. At Compass we are GIS experts of 20 years standing & couple this with our ICT expertise.

Field Computing

Be it capturing data or accessing information while out of the office, our hardware and software products and services bring reliable computing to the field worker. Add to this our mobile app development key capability & we deliver field solutions with mapping, workflow, payments & usability to the fore.

Systems benefit from on-going structured support, and planned updates and releases. We bring strong industry understandings to every project we commit to, contributing to each success story delivered. More..

Location Technologies

We seamlessly integrate spatial information systems or GIS into our systems – be they desktop GIS for analysis, mobile apps for data capture, or web systems for business workflows. We adopt the best-fit technology – be it Esri ArcGIS, open source or other choices.

The location tag in data is exceptionally powerful, allowing new insights and great ways of sharing information, especially when coupled with dashboards, reports, and statistical methods.

Field Computing

Rugged field computers come in phone to tablet sizes and are water, rain, dust, and drop ready. Using Android or Windows systems, they can run field-friendly software or data capture or information access. GPS features are heavily used by us and delivers high accuracy data capture where appropriate.  We now focus on field computers provided by HandHeld Europe, and Trimble Mobile Computing Solutions, along with our own custom mobile apps and field software form Esri and others.

Discovering local heritage – heritagemaps.ie

heritagemapsInterested in what’s around you? Want to find out more about your local heritage? Check out HeritageMaps.ie – a rich resource that Compass Informatics has had the opportunity to work on through various phases over recent years. It is a key initiative of the Heritage Council, Ireland.

This  map viewer is  the A-Z of Ireland’s heritage :  from archaeology to the marine zone.

Explore pilgrim paths, burial grounds, bat landscapes, maritime museums, walled towns from your phone, tablet or desktop computer.

HeritageMaps.ie allows you to look at a wide range of built and natural heritage datasets in map form, many of which have never been accessible to the public before.

HeritageMaps.ie acts as a “one-stop-shop” discovery tool, providing access to heritage data along with contextual data from a broad range of sources. These datasets were created for government departments, agencies and local authorities.

HeritageMaps.ie has many other uses for education, recreation and research.

HeritageMaps.ie hosts the Dublin Archaeology viewer and we are currently developing new area-specific viewers for the Dublin Bay Area and the Burren.

HeritageMaps.ie is building up national coverage of heritage datasets from local authority sources as well as using existing national datasets, including live services.

The Heritage Council has worked over the past 18 months  with local authorities and Compass Informatics to bring this to you.

We need your help to develop Heritage Maps. Please visit heritagemaps.ie and leave feedback – via the link on the homepage – with your views and suggestions.

HeritageMaps.ie uses Esri GIS technology with customisation, and a programme of supporting work to collate data and engage organisations.

A heartfelt congratulations and thanks to the Heritage Council!
