GIS provides a geography-based, spatial approach to problem solving and thinking about environmental and planning issues. GIS has the capability of integrating knowledge from multiple sources and creating a collaborative environment for decision makers and stakeholders. In addition, GIS is attractive to most people who encounter it because it is both intuitive and cognitive. It combines a powerful visualization environment with a strong analytic and modeling framework rooted in the science of geography. Sapphos Environmental, Inc. uses GIS as an analytical tool to assess how complex environmental factors interact and relate to a project’s physical location, which is important for determining baseline conditions, project feasibility, and potential impacts.
Sapphos Environmental, Inc. is highly experienced in utilizing ESRI-based GIS software, including ArcGIS and associated extensions such as Spatial Analyst and 3D Analyst.
