Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

GeoServices has in-house capabilities to produce accurate and detailed maps using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to accurately analyze and present data for interpretation. GIS provides a powerful tool for understanding and analyzing data and is exceedingly useful for presenting information. Using the powerful tool of GIS, GeoServices can summarize large volumes of aquifer and chemical data into readable, understandable, and useful graphics. The uses of GIS are limited only by the experience, knowledge, and creativity of those involved in their preparation and interpretation.

GIS Database Preparation

Act 2 Remediation and Litigation cases involving contaminated sites typically include a large volume of data collected from a variety of sources and field personnel. Compilation of data by our experienced scientists and GIS personnel into a comprehensive GIS database is an ideal way to extract maximum utility from the data. The database can be queried to create graphics to answer specific questions and resolve specific issues. The GIS database provides not only an effective tool to develop a conceptual model for a large data set, but also a mechanism to quickly test alternate conclusions and can be completed at a very reasonable cost.

Graphics Preparation

Using a combination of database overlay, mapping, and photographic techniques, we routinely produce GIS-based maps and presentations for regulatory reporting, client education and courtroom use.
