Geographical Information Systems

North Wind uses current geographical information systems (GIS) equipment and software when working on projects, which provides an enhanced field collection experience. Using remote sensing, aerial imagery, and special database development and analysis tools, we can provide the most accurate representation of a particular field site. In addition, North Wind is proficient in the use of Computer Aided Design and Drawing (CAD) software, image processing, and internet mapping systems. Other important services include spatial database development and analysis and geodatabase development with integration of nonspatial data formats.
