Geographic Analysis

Mapping our surroundings enhances awareness of the factors that can influence change, and guide us to solve day‐to‐day challenges.

Being able to access and interpret geographic data is essential for discovering hidden patterns that are used to understand how cities can operate more efficiently.

A geographic information system (GIS) allows you to visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends. GIS benefits organizations of all sizes and all industries. At CAESER, we work with organizations to provide access to geographic and urban data to aid in decision-making.

CAESER provides a wide array of GIS services to provide you with a comprehensive solution:

Legacy data migration

  • Move data in older formats (such as paper documents, microfilm/fiche, or relational database systems) into GIS
  • Create digitization tools and data entry forms for efficient and accurate data migration
  • Geocode tabular data in order to display, query, and analyze in GIS

Utility and municipal infrastructure

  • Map and attribute stormwater and sanitary sewer systems; electric, water, and natural gas lines and valves; and telecommunications infrastructure

Asset management

  • Map municipal assets (infrastructure, vehicles, facilities) to manage condition, number, changes and much more

Neighborhood planning and analysis

  • Collect and analyze data regarding the factors that contribute to the quality of life in a community

Decision support analytics

  • Support elected officials, city planners, and citizens to strategically enact positive change in their surroundings by developing intuitive data visualization tools
  • Provide decision support visualization tools that incorporate spatial data for disaster planning and recovery, based on mapping of critical infrastructure

Spatial data repository and dissemination

  • Collect and store spatial data within a RDBMS (relational database management system)
  • Develop a geoportal (spatial library of data) for easy data dissemination

Geodatabase design

  • Construct geodatabase architecture and schema

Mobile data collection

  • Perform field mapping using custom built mobile data applications
  • Collect high-accuracy GPS points with real-time correction
