Quality is at the core of our solutions and services and we employ quality assurance steps in all stages of project delivery.

Our Work
BEHIND OUR NAME

From the Greek agōnios, agōnos (from a- ‘without’ gonia ‘angle’).  The Agonics name refers to the imaginary lines on the earth’s surface that connect points where true north equals magnetic north.

We choose the name Agonics in honour of our roots in the survey sciences.
