Geographic Information System
R2V has the distinction of being one of the pioneering and premier GIS Company in Pakistan. Back in 1900s, very few organisations had the capacity or understanding of venturing into the domain of Geographic Information Systems. For us the transition came as a natural offshoot of CAD conversions, primarily feature extractions from Satellite Images and correlating the information with hand-drawn maps.
Soon, R2V developed a full scale GIS capacity and now has the diversity and capabilities that have a proven track record with our multiple clients.
As our capacity grew, so did the challenges and with each fresh assignment, the wish-list of our clients grew exponentially; it is often said that the capabilities of GIS are only limited to the imagination of the user, and some of our clients, we found out, do have very imaginative minds. It is also gratifying to note that those very clients then approached us for further assignments, sometimes just by providing us a wish-list, leaving the design, development and deployment to our suggestion.
A GIS allows the display of database information on a visual map. In the strictest sense, a GIS is a computer system capable of assembling, storing, manipulating, and displaying geographically referenced information, i.e. data identified according to their locations. GIS is playing a critical role in the world of administration and business as it enhances effective decision-making and planning for almost every administrative, industrial and business sector. Major advantages of using GIS tools could be summarized as follows;
- VISUALIZATION Landscapes are visualized for better understanding of trends and patterns. GIS is a valuable concept used for analysing market localization, roadway modelling and population distribution.
- DECISION MAKING Useful information can lead to better decisions. GIS works as a tool for queries, analysis and mapping relevant regions to support decisions.
- PLANNING ASSIGNMENTS Monitoring a region for business purposes is the pre-requisite for all projects that are at a verge of start.
R2V has the largest and most diverse GIS profile for any company in Pakistan. The core expertise, though multi-faceted, is focused on a- Visualization, b- In-depth Analysis, and c- Robust Decision Support System.
"A map is the greatest of all poems, its lines and colors show the realization of great dreams"
Through the successfully designed and implemented GIS projects, R2V has the experience in;
- Remote Sensing

R2V has also developed two customized GIS applications, namely ARAZI and NAQSHAW. The salient features of these can be downloaded through the given links.
R2V is among the handful of approved ‘No Limit’ GIS service providers registered with the Survey of Pakistan, the apex accreditation organization in this field.
Besides the large list of satisfied clients, our GIS services have earned the praise of the Supreme Court, Universities, and UN agencies. Multiple government agencies have accepted and approved Concept Papers floated by R2V, while project reports submitted by R2V have been frequently referred to and cited as a benchmark of excellence.
However, a very important component in GIS is also the platform on which the system is deployed and we, at R2V have a team of developers that now offer this as an add-on service.
