Ecosure’s comprehensive Geographic Information System (GIS) capabilities play a vital part in almost all of our environmental projects ensuring thorough and accurate information at all times. GIS identifies problems and assists ecologists to find the ultimate solutions for clients across a variety of industries; government, airport, defence, mining and resources, infrastructure and development, and energy sectors.
Ecosure uses advanced GIS software (ESRI ArcMap) to unlock location intelligence for its projects. GIS has many applications and is used as the key component for Ecosure’s spatially-focussed work, as well as playing a critical part in almost all projects for data management and analysis. Ecosure is also well recognised for its specialised work and expertise in Conservation Planning which uses GIS-based tools for strategic planning of conservation areas.
Ecosure’s dedicated GIS specialists all have environmental qualifications as well as being formally trained in GIS. The team’s expertise is regularly called on by local governments and private sector clients seeking quality GIS-based environmental services. With more than 90 environmental specialists working for the company, Ecosure’s GIS team is also supported in-house by industry leading scientists, and it’s this collaborative approach that continues to provide our valued clients with an unrivalled service.
Ecosure’s highly experienced GIS team has various capabilities between them, including creating animation showing change over time, crucial models like species density and potential habitat mapping, as well as capabilities to streamline processes using model builder (part of ESRI ArcMap) or python scripting.
