GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM (GIS) SERVICES
EnviroScience leverages the power of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to analyze, manage, and display environmental data. GIS is utilized in nearly 90% of our projects spanning all disciplines within the company. Our GIS analysts are capable of capturing data from many different sources and in many different formats, including local, state, and federal datasets, aerial and satellite imagery, digital elevation models (DEMs), CAD drawings, KML & KMZ files, client files, and GPS data collection.
Our GIS Services provide visually pleasing, full-color maps that efficiently communicate field conditions in a variety of sizes. Additionally, our GIS analysts are well practiced in creating GeoPDFs, in which feature attributes and coordinate information are directly embedded. We are committed to staying current with the latest technology and maintaining state-of-the-art software with Esri’s ArcGIS software suite.

GLOBAL POSITIONING SERVICES (GPS)
EnviroScience’s reputation for excellence is reinforced by our dedication to maintaining a fleet of Trimble GeoXT and GeoXH differential GPS receivers that enable data collection, editing, and viewing of attribute information while in the field. These units are sub-meter accurate; and under favorable conditions, have been known to be accurate up to 6 inches. Our scientists collect field data with a GPS unit, differentially correct the data against known base stations, and export it into ArcGIS and CAD formats.

Few environmental firms in the country retain EnviroScience’s degree of scientific know-how, talent, and capability under one roof. The diverse backgrounds of our biologists, environmental engineers, scientists, and divers enable us to provide comprehensive in-house services and an integrated approach to solving environmental challenges—saving clients time, reducing costs, and ensuring high-quality results.
Our client guarantee is to provide “Excellence in Any Environment,” meaning no matter what we do, we will deliver on our Core Values of respect, client advocacy, quality work, accountability, teamwork, and safety. EnviroScience was created with the concept that we could solve complex problems by empowering great people. This concept still holds true today as our scientists explore the latest environmental legislation and regulations and incorporate the most up-to-date technology to gather and report data.
EnviroScience expertise includes but is not limited to: aquatic surveys (including macroinvertebrate surveys and biological assessments); ecological restoration; ecological services (including impact assessments, invasive species control, and water quality monitoring); emergency response; engineering and compliance services; endangered mussel surveys; laboratory and analysis; stormwater management; threatened and endangered species; and wetlands and streams (including delineation and mitigation). Further, EnviroScience is one of the few biological firms in the country that is a general member of the Association of Diving Contractors International (ADCI) and offers full-service commercial diving services.
