Tree stands with timber type

Timber stand typing within a GIS environment can lead to more accurate timber volumes.

Proximity Map

Proximity location is a common theme for maps. It can be useful to rapidly visualize distances from harvest areas to mills, or from mills to potential harvest areas.

GIS Mapping and Data Analysis

We provide meaningful answers to complex questions through the use of Geospatial Information Systems (GIS).

Our experienced GIS professionals can process a variety of analysis scenarios.
  • Timber Typing
  • Image Classification
  • Terrain Slope
  • View Shed Analysis
  • Overlay Processing
  • Proximity Relation
  • Buffer Zones

We can create maps of tree farms or other locations that include parcel boundaries, streams, roads, contours, PLS lines and imagery. The resultant data files can be used with ArcPad for navigation, additional data collection, and timber cruise plot location. This service is readily available for Oregon and Washington. Other States are dependant upon availability of data.

We use ESRI software for our GIS work. Customer shapefiles, coverages, and imagery are easily incorporated into our process because of the versatility of ArcView and ArcInfo. This software is a suitable platform for everything from individual tree farms to complex regional landscapes.

We offer a variety of products beyond the traditional printed map.

Maps can be output to PDF for easy reading with a computer.

We can also produce GIS data as KMZ files. This file works with Google Earth. If Google Earth is installed on your computer, you can download this file, unzip it, and then double click it. Google Earth will then automatically open up and zoom to the data.
