GIS / Cartography

Spatial data is key to understanding what is going on in your area, and we have considerable Geographic Information Systems (GIS) experience. Ranging from high-end cartographic services to database management and modeling, or even technical support, we can help you get the most out of this essential technology. Our water resources engineers are actively involved in helping set statewide methodologies and standards for LiDAR-based projects.

Hydrologic / Hydraulic Modeling and Analysis

By using industry-leading modeling techniques, our engineers deliver useful information that benefits every aspect of watershed management— from flow reduction strategies to water quality—both at a single culvert location to an entire watershed scale. High water levels threaten the structural integrity and serviceability of our streets and highways. Our highly-skilled engineers perform hydrologic/hydraulic analyses and identify the causes, constraints, and corrective actions to maintain service levels and road life cycles.
