We provide geospatial and information technology solutions to meet the environmental and resource management needs of our clients.

GIS & Mapping

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are at the core of everything we do. We have a team of experts that can apply GIS analysis and mapping tools to support your specific business area. We deliver geospatial products to support science, engineering, resource management, policy, and strategic planning initiatives. Our team has a diverse background that ensures we know how to analyse and present spatial information, as well as understand your business language so that our solutions reflect strong knowledge in ecology, geosciences, engineering, and current information technologies. We take pride in applying practical geospatial models and then presenting professionally designed cartographic products that communicate effectively to your intended audience.

Application & Web Development

We find that our clients benefit from the presentation of spatial information online, in dynamic environments, that may be available publicly or just for a selected audience in a secure environment. With easy-to-use web maps and custom applications, our clients can view geospatial information in unique ways to help make key decisions and allow collaboration between organizations. Whether on the web or within desktop environments, we’ll design and build GIS applications or tools to streamline business processes and increase your productivity. We build these solutions using a blend of Esri and open-source software to maximize the potential of your spatial data.

Remote Sensing

Satellite and aerial imagery provide a wealth of information about our landscape. The technology, sensors, and products available today are evolving rapidly, and we are adept at sourcing appropriate and cost-effective data solutions to meet your specific requirements. We regularly apply medium- and high-resolution multispectral imagery to map the landscape for a variety of purposes. We also process and integrate LiDAR grid and point cloud datasets to map terrain and land cover and/or ecological attributes. With the increased popularity of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), multispectral imagery can be collected quickly and efficiently to bring new insight for your area of interest.

Data Analysis & Information Management

We can collaborate with your team to leverage the strengths of geospatial analysis and data management to better meet your business objectives. Awareness of data standards and skills with spatial and aspatial database systems allow us to manage information in an organized and efficient manner – to turn data into knowledge. We have a great deal of hands-on experience synthesizing a variety of datasets and different information sources including use of forest cover datasets, networked hydrology data, human disturbance data, terrestrial and predictive ecosystem mapping (TEM and PEM), fish and wildlife distribution data, and geochemical datasets. These data have been applied in numerous projects related to visual impact assessments, ecosystem classification mapping, vegetation and land cover mapping, urban and regional planning, environmental assessments, and mineral resource exploration.
