Our mission is to provide geospatial data of the highest quality, for any purpose. This has traditionally been for mapping purposes but nowadays is biased towards aeronautical data.
SLC Associates have now been operating for 35 years. The original partnership was incorporated in January 2001 as Geomatic Solutions Ltd but continues to trade under the more familiar names of SLC Associates or SLC Geomatic Solutions. The corporate logo was redesigned in 2010 and now says ‘SLC Geomatic Solutions’, a trading name that is becoming more familiar.
Our specialist aeronautical surveyors have successfully carried out over 260 WGS-84 aerodrome surveys, in 34 different countries around the world. We have also developed the specialist software, Geospatial Data Management System (GDMS), to handle electronic terrain and obstacle data (eTOD) and analyse aerodrome obstructions. GDMS is now available online as well as the desktop version and is in use at over 60 locations worldwide.
