Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Your business needs to be faster and more agile to succeed today. You must make good decisions based on accurate, timely data. You require more efficient use of staff time to achieve more with fewer people.

The answer: GIS.  GIS is a system of hardware, software, data, people and processes to collect, manage, analyze and display geographically referenced information.

GIS is applicable to any field of study or industry in which features or activities are distributed geographically. GIS technology provides tools and methods to solve answers such as, “Where are my resources positioned? Where are they in relationship to other features?”

GIS technology helps you analyze and solve complex spatial problems and situations. It allows you to easily access information on the location of your assets, either geographically with respect to a road network or as a component of a utility network. You can navigate to, from, and between worksites efficiently. You can simulate and visualize how environmental processes impact your assets. If you need to collect, sort, and analyze data, GIS is a tool of preference.

While GIS data supports sophisticated workflows and analysis, it also provides intuitive, easy-to-use applications. Data collection applications such as inspections and inventories are simplified with straightforward, spatially-enabled, reporting forms. Field personnel can utilize light-weight yet rugged field computing devices to collect the location data you need.

Examples where GIS is useful:

  • Parcel assessment and mapping
  • Zoning and redevelopment
  • Highway planning and management
  • Emergency response
  • Site planning and routing
  • Land management
  • Facility management
  • Facility maintenance activities
  • Risk assessment and management
  • Utility outage management
  • Plan, construct, and manage energy facilities.
  • Forest management, sensitive habitat protection, wildlife conservation, and endangered species preservation.
  • Plan routes for collection and delivery vehicles.
