Geospatial Tools

We host geographic information system tools and geoprocessing services to support our clients geospatial needs. 

Industry Standard Tools     Our core tool set includes ESRI’s ArcGIS and ArcGIS Server, SQL Server’s geospatial queries, and Matlab’s Mathworks geographic elements to support our work.  

Customized Tools and Models     We have developed geoprocessing tools and models that produce custom assessments used by water, energy and infrastructure clients across our sectors.  These include:

Water District Asset Management Tools

Our asset management tools are tailored to support the operations of our clients. Tools for visualization, report generation, upload/download of csv or shapefiles, address and database searches, tabular display and sorting by asset attributes and map links from the tabular data are all options for our clients.

Maintenance Tracking Tools for Infrastucture Clients

Our maintenance tools include access to worksheets and maintenance logs from the map tips.

Our tailored district specific worksheets are created for mobile access and for unambiguous and consistent data entry.

Water Infrastructure Mapping

Our infrastructure mapping tools include bulk loading of district or ditch company data and custom work to tailor the data to the client’s specific geographic needs.

Radar / Wind Turbine Lines of Sight

Our Line of Sight tools calculate and display detailed LOS data for wind turbines within a development and surveillance and air traffic radars within range of the development. The tools use ESRI’s LOS functionality enabled for the web so that users can enter developments of interest and link the physical parameters of the wind turbines with the radars in range. The tools handle all the calculations and return shapefile and csv file data with the analytical and visual assessments.

Radar Viewsheds

Our tools for producing radar viewsheds provide a wind developer the ability to select the radar of interest and set the height of the target objects, typically turbines, wind towers or communications towers, and initiate the viewshed production. The tools link to DEM data, radar database information that provides the radar feedhorn height (the observer height) and then returns the calculated viewshed to the map and produces a downloadable shapefile for use in other systems.

Observer Viewsheds

The Observer viewshed tool provides a quick look at what a ground observer might see from a particular vantage point. The online tool allows a user to select the observer’s location and height as well as the height of the target objects. The purpose of the tool is to determine whether target objects such as wind turbines, communications towers, or other vertical obstructions might be seen from specific locations. The tool can be adjusted to support client’s specific interests.
