AES has employed Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and mapping advances for more than 20 years, pioneering some of the country’s most innovative regional planning tools to support ecological project goals.
Our geospatial professionals develop custom GIS analysis, detailed maps, and datasets that inform land planning decisions for regional planning agencies, conservation planners, government bodies, and private corporations who seek cost-effective planning solutions for large-scale challenges.
GIS mapping of existing data (land cover, topography, soils, and aerial imagery) are often the first step toward understanding the regional context of natural resources, ecological values, threats, and opportunities.
Using these data, AES creates GIS models, often calibrated by field surveys, to characterize and/or mimic past, current, and future land conditions. These maps and models allow planners, land managers, and developers to make better decisions.
AES geospatial and planning professionals integrate skills to develop practical tools for balancing environmental protection with other community goals and planning efforts.
