Documentation Mapping

Complete mapping of all course areas, features, irrigation and infrastructure

High Precision Mapping

Our mapping technique is based on high precision GPS using RTK-network receivers, measuring in cm accuracy.  This process guarantees accuracy and consistency, giving you confidence in the results of area calculations and location tools.

Mapping every feature of the course


Our Documentation Mapping is a comprehensive mapping of every point, object and feature on the golf course, with cm accuracy.  Documentation includes:

  • Grass Areas:  tees, fairways, greens, bunkers, semi-rough, rough and heavy rough

  • Water Obstacles:  ponds, lakes, rivers, creeks, ditches, marshland

  • Markings:  tee anchors, fairway markings, out of bounds, red/yellow hazards

  • Irrigation:  sprinklers, quick couplers, irrigation lines, drainage, control boxes

  • Infrastructure:  roads, cart paths, buildings, walls

Irrigation features can be defined by specific sprinkler type or diameter pipe, providing extremely detailed and accurate data.  

Mark the features you want mapped, we do the rest!

It's as simple as marking out all irrigation features with flags prior to us arriving for the mapping, and we'll take care of the rest.  This ensures a complete and thorough process, and provides you with an accurate "Digital Document" for use within your LiveGIS Maintenance Software. 

Hole Length/Area/Control Reports

Technical Features

  • Export 3 report types, information generated from documentation mapping

  • Reports are updated as you change/update within LiveGIS Maintenance

  • Instantly analyze valuable technical information about your course

Hole Length Reports

See the "defined" scorecard length and compare to the "measured" length for each tee on every hole.  Visually see each tee position and line of play on the hole view.  Update report easily after moving tees or changing hole layout.

Area Reports

Automatically calculates areas for all key features of the hole, such as tees, fairway, green and bunkers.  Changes to the course are automatically recalculated.  Know exactly the area of all features on the course, and better estimate and analyze labor/fertilizer/irrigation costs.

Control Reports

Lists type, exact GPS coordinates, and distance from the green for all irrigation, drainage and infrastructure.  See location of features visually on the map.

Measure Distances

Technical Features

  • Measure distances and height data anywhere on the course

  • See the distance between two points, elevation change, and degree of slope instantly for any defined measurement

  • Snap-on to existing points, such as tee anchors, sprinklers, center of green, etc

  • Measure between just two points, or add multiple legs to the measurement

Use the powerful measure tool to easily measure any distance and calculate any change in elevation on the course.  The measure tool provides a sub-centimeter level of accuracy in distance calculation.  Additionally, each measure segment automatically calculates elevation change and degree of slope in centimeters accuracy.

With the ability to accurately measure and analyze elevation for all areas of your course, you can take control of your existing course layout, as well as take educated decisions about potential design changes and course improvements in the future.

Analyze Topography

Technical Features

  • Display contour maps as an overlay, toggle on/off

  • Analyze elevation data with cm accuracy

  • Visualize changes in elevation directly within the top-down view

  • Plan changes to course features relative to the existing topography

The ability to accurately analyze topography with ease sets LiveGIS apart from any other solution on the market today.  Display contour maps as an overlay to the course drawing, and understand the 3-dimensional space relative to your existing course design.  Easily plan changes to the course and see how your proposed design will exist within the current topography.

Use LiveGIS to gain a better understanding of drainage and other issues related to elevation change on your course.  Easily identify problem areas and create solutions to solve poor drainage, difficult playing conditions, as well as growth and erosion issues.

Plan Changes

Technical Features

  • Measure, plan and draw changes and new course features through the use of easy and accurate drawing tools

  • Draw proposed changes on planning layer, overlay on existing course layout for direct comparison between new and old design

  • Calculate areas of proposed changes instantly, to better analyze improvements

  • Use LiveGIS Rugged Tablet to precisely locate in-field your planned changes and easily mark the location of your new features/cut lines

Planning changes and improvements to your course has never been easier and more accurate.  Take advantage of the measure and draw tools to plan and draw new features, and see how these changes exist relative to the current course as-built.  Instantly calculate areas and measure distances of your proposed design.


Once you've drawn new features in-office, you can utilize the LiveGIS Rugged Tablet to accurately locate and mark in-field the location of your proposed changes.  This accurate and efficient process gives you the ability to plan changes and improvements with confidence.    

Visualize in 3D

Technical Features

  • Control all visibility features of web and app from one location

  • Set and change sponsor/ads visibility per hole, on demand

The ability to visualize your course in 3D provides a plethora of unique opportunities.  The 3D environment is automatically generated from the 2D drawing environment.  You can better understand your as-built course in 3D from any angle.  Additionally, you can quickly visualize any changes or proposed designs to your course, directly conveying how new changes will look on the course, and communicating these design decisions in a clear way to any interested party (i.e. members, board of directors).


Take advantage of this powerful tool and have confidence in your ability to make adjustments to your course, and communicate your ideas in an accurate and visually stunning way. 

Locate Features and Infrastructure

Technical Features
