GIS & Remote
Today’s business environment requires the organization, analysis and presentation of large amounts of data. If this data is retrieved and presented properly with just the right technology, critical decisions regarding lands, resources and facilities can be made with much more clarity. Our team will supply you with the geographic (“spatial”) attributes and relationships required for intelligent planning.
Midwest Surveys’ GIS team can support clients’ initiatives through data development, translation, warehousing, integration or on-line access through MSIMap, Midwest’s complimentary online mapping solution.
MSI Map is Midwest Surveys’ comprehensive and exclusive web-based GIS software solution available at no additional cost to Midwest Clients. Our GIS team works collaboratively to build client driven applications that are fully customizable based on individual project needs.
MSI Map’s base data and over 20 layers of additional data provide the information most crucial to your project. Custom analysis tools such as the Well Lease Placement tool , Right of Way Construction (ROW) tool, and Constraints Buffer tool assist in intelligent decision making resulting in reduce costs.
3D Modelling Using LiDAR Data
See your next project site in a 3D virtual terrain model prior to boots hitting the ground. Your team can use this powerful tool in site selection, routing, profiles, volume calculations and a visual impact assessment.
Our team of professionals lead live LiDAR viewing sessions in house or at one of our local offices whereby your project team can contribute to site selection and routing in real time.
