the use of photography in surveying and mapping to measure distances between objects. 
The collection, processing, and storage of aerial photography and LIDAR data requires a lot of digital storage space. Access to this data needs to be fast! When compilation teams are waiting on image files to load, efficiency suffers. For over 25 years GigaParts has been the outsourced Information Technology provider for G-Squared, LLC in Fayetteville, Tennessee.  

In 1998, aerial photography was captured on film, then run through a large format film scanner converting the scanned film rolls to .tiff format. Processing the imagery was accomplished with a proprietary product suite of applications. To stay competitive, G-Squared utilized the relationship with GigaParts to ensure they were always able to adapt to modern technology and produce GIS maps faster and more accurate than the competition. This included state-of-the-art storage servers, workstations, and fast networking equipment.  

25 years later G-Squared is no longer scanning film rolls sent to them by the aircraft pilots and data collectors. Nowadays digital photography is the preferred method with images stored on digital media inside the aircraft. This means that not only do you have to deal with massive amounts of incoming data, but you also must ensure the data is free from threats and corruption. GigaParts maintains a vast network of compute servers and storage arrays to keep the graphic edit and compilation departments of G-Squared secured, updated, and efficient with maximum uptime. When you have a timeline on a contract for commercial or government customer, you cannot afford to have any technology issues. For G-Squared, that need was met by GigaParts team of trusted advisors and experts.
