GANDA specializes in using Geographic Information Systems during all phases of project development. We have full-featured GIS labs in California, Hawaii and Montana, and expertise with the entire suite of ESRI ArcGIS 10.x software, including 3D Analyst and Spatial Analyst extensions. These tools are well-suited for data collection, integration and performing spatial analyses on a large variety of data possibilities. Given the unique ability to overlay, query and georeference data in a variety of digital formats, the analytical power of GIS is essential for a complete assessment of environmental and cultural resource issues. Using this technology we can integrate:
Aerial photography Elevation/terrain models
Environmental data Global Positioning System (GPS) data
Historic records Hydrologic data
Planning data/information Transportation/utilities networks
