Geographic Information Systems

GIS is a technology that is used to view and analyze data from a geographic perspective. The technology is a piece of an organization's overall information system framework. GIS links location to information (such as people to addresses, buildings to parcels, or streets within a network) and layers that information to give you a better understanding of how it all interrelates. Geography isn't just an academic subject, it's a serious discipline with multibillion dollar implications for businesses and governments. Choosing sites, targeting market segments, planning distribution networks, responding to emergencies, or redrawing country boundaries—all of these problems involve questions of geography.

The Software we use:


ArcInfo is the most complete and extensible GIS available. It includes all the functionality of ArcView and ArcEditor and adds advanced geoprocessing and data conversion capabilities. Professional GIS users use ArcInfo for all aspects of data building, modeling, analysis, and map display for screen and output. A complete GIS out of the box, ArcInfo provides all the functionality for creating and managing an intelligent GIS. This functionality is accessible via an easy-to-use interface that is customizable and extensible through models, scripting, and applications.

The power of Autodesk Civil 3D 2006 lies in its dynamic engineering model. The model contains all core geometry and maintains intelligent relationships between design objects such as points, surfaces, parcels, roads, and grading. Tables, object labels, and various analysis displays derive from the model, so if any part of the model changes, all associated parts are instantly and dynamically updated. For example, change the horizontal road alignment, and profiles, road model, section plots, volumes, proposed contours, and submittal drafting are updated automatically. Updates are not just visual representations of changes. They are integrated directly into the core data contained in your model, ensuring that edits are reflected throughout your project.

Cityworks® is a GIS-centric Asset and Computerized Maintenance Management System (or CMMS) created specifically for Public Works and Utilities organizations facing the challenge of managing community infrastructure assets. Designed to fully leverage your investment in GIS, Cityworks eliminates the need for costly duplication of asset data, promoting a truly enterprise solution. Utilizing the data contained in the GeoDatabase, Cityworks provides a complete solution for managing your dispersed infrastructure with tools for creating and tracking maintenance activities associated to assets and/or addresses. These include handling requests for service, conflict resolution, work orders, tests and inspections, ad-hoc search and reporting and much more.

H2OMAP Sewer is a powerful, stand-alone GIS-based computer program for use in the planning, design, analysis, and expansion of sanitary, storm and combined sewer collection systems. The program can be effectively used to model both dry-weather and wet-weather flows and determine the most cost-effective and reliable method of wastewater collection. Built using advanced Object-Oriented Geospatial Component model, H2OMAP Sewer seamlessly views, manipulates, and exchanges GIS data sets with incredible ease and simplicity.

Built using advanced Object-Oriented Geospatial Component model, H2OMAP Water provides the most powerful and practical GIS platform for water utility solutions. As a stand-alone GIS-based program, H2OMAP Water combines spatial analysis tools and mapping functions with sophisticated and accurate network modeling for complete infrastructure (asset) management and business planning. It performs fast, reliable and comprehensive hydraulic and dynamic water quality modeling, energy management (with true variable speed pumping), real-time simulation and control with on-line SCADA interface, complete fire flow analysis, and unidirectional flushing. The program can also be effectively used to analyze pressurized sewer collection system.

The Watershed Modeling System (WMS) is a comprehensive graphical modeling environment for all phases of watershed hydrology and hydraulics.  WMS includes powerful tools to automate modeling processes such as automated basin delineation, geometric parameter calculations, GIS overlay computations (CN, rainfall depth, roughness coefficients, etc.), cross-section extraction from terrain data, and many more!  With the release of WMS 7, the software now supports hydrologic modeling with HEC-1 (HEC-HMS), TR-20, TR-55, Rational Method, NFF, MODRAT, and HSPF. Hydraulic models supported include HEC-RAS, SMPDBK, and CE QUAL W2. 2D integrated hydrology (including channel hydraulics and groundwater interaction) can now be modeled with GSSHA.  All of this in a GIS-based data processing framework will make the task of watershed modeling and mapping easier than ever before

With a new, ultra-precise GPS measurement engine, new, fast, self-checking RTK algorithms, and a comprehensive, self-explanatory user interface.  LEICA System 1200 receivers provide all the flexibility, power and performance needed for every type of GPS application.
