The GIS and Environmental departments at GEC work very closely with each other to provide clients the state of the art in environmental management and analysis. All NEPA investigations, corridor surveys and sampling efforts are augmented with GPS for mapping and data capture and subsequently, all data sets are stored in a GIS for data management as well as analysis and data presentation. The GIS Department has also conducted several environmental GIS projects such as forest cover type mapping, watershed delineation, habitat and home range analysis for endangered species, predictive modeling for unique habitat occurrences, water quality monitoring databases, resources demand study for recreation, and a state-wide cultural and historic resources database.
