Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

AKRF’s GIS group provides mapping, modeling and geospatial analysis in support of the firm’s many and varied environmental and planning studies and engineering projects. Our GIS group also offers its expert mapping and analysis services directly to its clients.

We have successfully implemented diverse types of GIS projects from hydrologic modeling to industrial site selection analysis, and marine species distribution modeling to land use and zoning studies. For these projects, we draw on our wealth of in-house geographic information—including topographic data, land use and zoning, economic and census data, natural resources, addresses and property information, buildings, transportation features, aerial and satellite imagery, CAD drawings, and historic maps.

We also specialize in three-dimensional computer modeling, visualization, shadow and solar studies.
