Whether determining an ideal route for electric transmission, pipelines, or highway infrastructure, the use of Path analysis for identifying optimal routes based on user-defined criteria are fundamentally the same. The GDI difference is by leveraging the power of GIS, professional staff at GDI can scientifically determine an ideal route for infrastructure usually within hours. The results are fast and repeatable. This ensures scientific integrity of the routes based on user-defined criteria. Each project is unique and tailored to the clients individual needs. The client defines criteria important to his/her own project and also determines the weights. This concept is illustrated in the banner image above. The red cells represent highly developed areas. The blue cells indicate wetlands. By assigning higher weights to these cells the program automatically reroutes itself. Higher weighted values assigned to the input data are synonymous with higher project costs for your infrastructure. Avoid unnecessary mitigation by allowing GDI to scientifically determine your next route.
Chapter 9 of the Property Tax Administration of the Texas Administrative Code requires appraisal offices and all tax offices appraising property to develop and maintain a system of tax maps spanning all properties for which they appraise taxes. Many County Clerks are becoming aware of the suitability of GIS systems to accomplish this task. Additionally, the benefits of digitizing your parcel records extend well beyond compliance. Digital tax mapping allows Parcel Databases to be analyzed, queried, maintained, and accessible to property owners via the web. Municipalities, emergency services, utility providers and other public service departments will also benefit greatly by having this infrastructure in place. The benefits are countless. GDI’s team of Land Surveyors and GIS professionals have the proven capacity to bring your property records into into digital compliance.
Site selection or suitability analysis is a type of analysis used in GIS to determine optimum locations for businesses or infrastructure. Example applications of this kind of analysis can include the siting of new a business to be within proximity of certain market criteria, the siting of a windfarm within proximity of highway and existing transmission infrastructure, or the determination for a new school site within specified drive times and proximity to recreational areas. The use of GIS in the site selection process will save you time and enhance the accuracy of your investment.
