COVID-19 Update
The services Midwest Surveys provides are considered an essential service, therefore we are still open and operating. The majority of our employees who work out of our 11 offices are now working remotely from home, while our field staff have been provided with safe work protocols and checklists outlining responsible social distancing, personal hygiene, and cleaning measures. We will continue to adhere by the Federal, Provincial, and Municipal government’s guidelines to ensure we can continue to carry out services, while maintaining the protection of our employees, clients, and members of the communities in which we live and work.

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.

            3D Modelling for Site & Earthworks Planning

            Midwest Surveys’ 3D Modelling Team saves time and money, providing successful planning and completion of earthworks projects. 

            Our high quality front end 3D Modelling is an innovative solution to conceptual earthworks planning. Unlike conventional design methods, 3D Modelling is developed to clients’ specifications, resulting in field construction cost reduction and project schedule optimization. At Midwest, we can assist with grading for facility pads, access roads, pipeline corridors, retention ponds and other facilities.
