EoN sell a wide range of local, regional, national and international GIS databases and products.  We specialize in the creation of vector GIS databases from raster images whether from paper, Mylar, CAD drawings or other raster images.  With our advanced digitizing technology we can deliver complex products quickly meeting or exceeding the most demanding technical requirements. 

Our extensive line of national GIS databases is based on the following flagship products:

Satellite Imagery – High-resolution ortho-photography and satellite imagery.  

Aerial Photography - high resolution aerial photography in digital format of the Panama metro area covering from Tocumen to Chorrera.  Includes the Pacific terminus of the Panama Canal, Panama city and the main urban area of San Miguelito.  This 1:10,000 scale photography has the resolution to prepare 1:2,500 scale map products. 

SIG Panama – 1:2,500 scale vector GIS database of the Republic of Panama based upon paper sources from the Dept. of Census and Statistics, Controloria .  Has all buildings, census blocks, census data, political boundaries, transportation network, bridges and hydrology.  Updated with year 2000 data.

SIG Republic 2000 – 1:250,000 scale vector GIS database of the Republic of Panama.  Has towns, transportation network, hydrology, contours, protected area and political boundaries.  Derived in part from the 1:250,000 scale paper maps provide by the Instituto Geografico “Tommy Guardia.”

In addition to the products listed above EoN has an extensive library of GIS databases of environmental, ecological and socio-economic GIS data that combine perfectly with our flagship products.  Some specific examples are:

Life Zones or Vegetation Forms of the World by  L. R. Holdridge - Scale  1:2,000,000 and published by the Instituto Geográfico Nacional “Tommy Guardia” in 1985.  This paper map of the Republic of Panama has 12 classifications of life zones.  EoN converted this data to a vector digital format to integrate seamlessly with SIG Republic.

Climatological Map (after Koppen) – Scale 1:2,000,000 published by the Instituto Geográfico Nacional “Tommy Guardia” in 1985. This paper map of the Republic of Panama has five climate classification.  EoN converted this data to a vector digital format to integrate seamlessly with SIG Republic.
