Sustaining biodiversity and preventing fragmentation, extinction, and natural resource depletion are crucial to conservation of the environment. The ability to use GIS technology as a tool to monitor habitat change, track wildlife demographics, and predict future land and resource use is essential to conservation goals and practices. The spatial and thematic aspects of GIS technology enable users to overlay various data to delineate and predict the future of our resources, land, ocean, plant life, and wildlife. This geoprocessing enables decision makers to implement laws and programs that will protect and sustain the environment and its resources.
Balancing the inputs and outputs on a farm is fundamental to its success and profitability. The ability of GIS to analyze and visualize agricultural environments and workflows has proven to be very beneficial to those involved in the farming industry. From mobile GIS in the field to the scientific analysis of production data at the farm manager`s office, GIS is playing an increasing role in agriculture production throughout the world by helping farmers increase production, reduce costs, and manage their land more efficiently.
GIS offers a variety of tools and capabilities used in the management, analysis, and visualization of cave and karst information. It is used for inventory and field data collection, both on the surface of the earth and underground, and is a powerful tool for collecting and integrating a wide variety of data.
Archaeologists, as researchers and resource managers, understand the importance of geography. Its variables exert a strong influence on human behavior today, and archaeologists are aware of the significance of this influence in the past. Geography also influences the degree of exposure of archaeological sites, and the impacts that they face from human activity and natural forces. GIS facilitates mapping to analyze depositional patterns as well as catalog and quantify artifacts. It can provide a well-structured descriptive and analytical tool for identifying spatial patterns.
The resources in the earth`s crust require sophisticated technology to discover, extract, and manage. Since mining is inherently spatial, requiring accurate knowledge of areas of the earth`s surface and subsurface, geospatial technology is best suited to intelligently oversee all phases of the mine operation. GIS gives mining companies the tools they need to operate mines responsibly and at optimum efficiency. It is a comprehensive, interoperable technology specifically designed to compile, process, display, analyze, and archive volumes of interdisciplinary data.
For years, petroleum companies have used Esri`s GIS to decide where to drill a well, route a pipeline, build a refinery, and reclaim a site. Today`s GIS provides oil and gas industry solutions throughout the petroleum life cycle. All major oil companies in the world use Esri`s GIS technology to manage their location-based information, from leases, wells, and pipelines to environmental sites, facilities, and retail outlets.
GIS is a powerful tool for developing solutions for water resources such as assessing water quality and managing water resources on a local or regional scale. Hydrologists use GIS technology to integrate various data and applications into one, manageable system. The suite of tools contained in Arc Hydro facilitate the creation, manipulation, and display of hydro features and objects within the ArcGIS environment.
GIS technology profoundly and positively impacts the way land managers, timber managers, and forestry specialists manage timber resources. Esri`s GIS software helps foresters and land managers meet the needs of their forests, the demands of society, and the pressures of economic efficiency.
New geographic information system (GIS) technology tools enable you to better understand and represent the systems at work in the seas and oceans. From the coastal shoreline to the bathymetric bottom, marine GIS has been adapted and implemented to help you achieve your goals in coastal zone management, research, ocean industries, and navigation.
Our Ecosystem (OE) is a ground-breaking mapping platform that combines powerful data sharing and querying capabilities with satellite imagery and analytical tools, allowing you to easily monitor your worldwide operations, review historic land changes or impacts, and assess potential risks and opportunities to your natural capital.
Our Ecosystem also allows you to generate full reports based on your results, so you can use it to account for your impacts on ecosystem services and biodiversity, and comply with forthcoming natural capital disclosure standards.
Best of all, you don’t need geographic information systems (GIS) or remote sensing software skills to operate Our Ecosystem. Ecometrica’s team of land use specialists and developers provide a managed service that gives decision-makers everything they need in an easy to use interface.
Our Ecosystem (OE) can help you with:
- Quantification of initial carbon stocks
- Baseline and leakage assessment
- Monitoring and verification
OE makes it easy to access, organize, share and obtain information from maps and other spatial data on land and ecosystems, giving you the opportunity to interact with the data in an intuitive user interface.
OE is delivered as a service that does not require specialist knowledge on geographical information system (GIS) software or remote sensing data and techniques within your organization.
Instead of having to look at paper maps in a report, you will be able to pan through the data and zoom in to areas of interest. In addition, it allows you to extract information from the data for areas of special interest using powerful analytical tools.
Your OE application is set up so that your data is secure, and you can control who has access to it.
