Geographic Information Systems 

 

A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyse, manage and present all types of geographical data.

Prensa’s staff are trained in the use of Esri's ArcGIS software program. This program can be used to compile a range of geographic data, perform analysis and produce custom maps which aid in the conceptualisation of a site.

Prensa can undertake a range of activities using GIS, such as:

  • Importation and presentation of publically available data (i.e. locations of roadways, property boundaries, waterways, geological boundaries, groundwater wells, aerial imagery) and privately supplied data (i.e. borehole locations, monitoring well locations) within the desired format
  • Collection of data of site features which can be accurately mapped using geographical coordinates, such as buildings and sampling locations, and
  • Use of spatial analysis tools to interpolate data and create a range of outputs such as groundwater reduced water level contour maps, groundwater contamination plume maps and soil contamination hotspots

Prensa’s GIS map outputs can visually assist our clients in conceptually understanding the condition of their site.
