Data Servicesheritage-maps-data-legend

As organisations grow they become increasingly dependent on large volumes of data distributed across multiple databases and applications. In turn, confidence in the integrity of that data depends on well-designed data services and holdings which will assist in efficient and effective decision-making.

Our data services assist our clients to achieve a high degree of confidence in the information they use for strategic decision-making.  We can provide consultancy and project-based services to:

  • Collate and integrate data from multiple sources
  • Design and build data holdings and data services to enable the sharing of data between different applications
  • Provide advice and guidance on best practice data governance, a key requirement if management teams are to have confidence in the data used for strategic decision making case study: For the Heritage Council, we cleaned, collated and organised data from a variety of sources, both service-based and static, to present a wealth of data relating to Ireland’s cultural, built and natural heritage.  These datasets are presented using the Compass Informatics custom Layer Widget enabling the user to navigate the data with ease.

GIS Services


Our GIS services can scale to cover local, enterprise and web- and cloud-based GIS installations.  We can support your GIS requirements through:

  • The design, implementation and support of GIS solutions, at a scale appropriate to your organisation
  • Building and supporting your organisation’s in-house GIS capabilities through secondment and/or training services

LGMA/RMO Pavement Management case study: Compass designed and built a bespoke GIS mapping solution for the Local Government Management Agency and the Road Management Office to view national road surface condition information.  Data is collected by local authorities via mobile apps built by Compass and presented via the web-based GIS application.

Data, whether spatial or non-spatial, packs the greatest punch when it can be used to tell a story.

Data Analytics and Data Exploration Services


Data, whether spatial or non-spatial, packs the greatest punch when it can be used to tell a story.  Our data analytics and exploration services assist our clients in understanding the relationships and spatio-temporal patterns held within their datasets.  We can help release information insights from your data through:

  • Exploratory sessions that will delve into large datasets to explore potential relationships held within
  • Analytical sessions that can yield solid patterns and evidence-based outcomes
  • Visualisation of outputs that will help transform a large and inaccessible dataset into a visual artefact that can be used to support decision making
