Land use and resource planners require timely, sufficiently detailed and complete land base information to analyze and to develop meaningful and reliable plans. We can help you assess your land base information needs and possibilities, acquire appropriate imagery and/or data, and convert that data into the type of inventory you need to meet your integrated land and resource management needs of today.[...]
Land-use planning and resource management today requires that a vast amount of information or intelligence is readily available in a timely fashion. It requires accurate, scalable information that can be used for strategic planning over very large land-bases as well as detailed high resolution intelligence for operational on-the-ground applications. In the past this range of uses has been largely unattainable without completing multiple level inventories at high cost. Fortunately things have changed. With computers, powerful software, high resolution digital imagery and lidar, the world and its resources can now be mapped at very high resolution and scaled at what ever level of detail is required for a specific application. Furthermore, the data can be mined and retrospective analysis performed at virtually any time new questions arise.[...]
