Our staff can generate maps that are appropriate for a variety of applications, including confidential client review, agency permitting and planning documents, or public meetings and outreach. Our team has expertise in ESRI ArcGIS, Global Mapper, and Garmin MapSource software, as well as AutoCAD data integration into GIS programs. Field cartographic data collection is completed with submeter-accuracy Trimble GPS units, handheld Garmin GPS units, and real-time kinematic (RTK) and total station devices.
