Vacant Land Analysis
Land Use Planning
One of the most important aspects of land-use planning is not the planning process, but the effort to share findings and predictions with the public. Today's complex land-use issues—adding wind farms, cell-phone towers and natural resource management to the already complicated issues of zoning, water rights etc.—can be difficult for interested parties to fully understand. GIS technology can help both land-use organizations and planning departments communicate the affects of proposed new developments.
Gorge GIS provides a full range of services, from large-format presentation maps to GIS layer development, modeling and strategies for system implementation. Gorge GIS’s oversized maps utilize the latest ortho-photos and GIS data, giving you the cutting edge in communicating with the public. Common sizes are 17” x 22”, 22” x 34”, and 34” x 44”.
All Gorge GIS projects are based on accurate and appropriate data—a map may look impressive hanging on a wall but not offer any useful information. We have a full line of GIS layer development techniques, including satellite image processing, “table top” digitizing and experience with the development of complex GIS data structures. GIS Thematic Accuracy Assessment methods and field reviews create well-researched, balanced and realistic data and maps.
