Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Services

CORE is an experienced provider of GIS services to the environmental remediation and oil and gas industries. Our GIS specialists have extensive experience in all phases of the GIS life-cycle. Our professional staff routinely combines traditional civil engineering, landscape design, survey and environmental/ecological variables through the manipulation of state-of-the-art GIS software to produce a wide variety of deliverables that provide clients with a comprehensive view of their geo-spatial situations. Our understanding of customer needs assures the highest quality standards in spatial data management.

CORE’s GIS department was born from the needs of clients to combine spatial data with a multitude of project specific attributes in a final product that allows clients to qualify and quantify site specific and regional issues. Once geospatial issues have been identified, CORE can provide solutions to the client in order to facilitate progress in a way that minimizes both cost and environmental impact. Our GIS services provide numerous options for gathering, managing, and displaying information that include:

  • Resource and access identification
  • Feature digitization and spatial analysis
  • Spatial database development and maintenance
  • Linear routing and least cost routing analysis
  • Parcel management and topology editing
  • Hydrologic analysis and modeling
  • Geo-processing and custom modeling to automate various geo-processing operations
  • Geo-statistical analysis combining environmental, infrastructure and economic variables
  • 3D data visualization and AutoCAD integration
  • Aerial and orbital imagery processing, manipulation and geo-referencing
  • LiDAR data processing and manipulation
  • GPS data collection, processing and manipulation
