Epic utilizes GIS to integrate real estate information into existing client GIS systems as well as provide analysis and data as a standalone GIS service. Epic offers a full spectrum of GIS services from simple spatial analysis to the development of full-featured GIS models and spatial databases. Our analysts will work with data in a variety of standard spatial formats including .shp files and various open GIS file systems. Additionally, Epic’s ability to work with CAD drawings allows for seamless exchange of information between engineering departments and Epic’s own GIS team.
If data is in short supply, our team has experience in acquiring data from a variety of sources and creating data from raw spatial information. Once data is acquired, Epic will leverage spatial information to:
» Update and quality-check large quantities of parcel information.
» Create a geodatabase for storing and manipulating geographic data.
» Run custom queries and reports.
» Aid in site selection based on municipal, environmental and demographic criteria.
» Digitize easements from existing maps or legal descriptions to visualize impacts to project areas.
» Team with engineering firms to incorporate CAD project design files into GIS for property identification.
» Track project progress visually through maps to identify parcels as “Acquired,” “In negotiation” and “Cleared for demolition”.
» Create visually appealing, custom mapping including high quality aerial imagery and useful map symbology.
» Optimize cost estimation by performing geostistical calculations such as “percent take”.
GIS technology allows for almost limitless manipulation of spatial data. In addition to those services listed, our team welcomes custom requests and will work with existing personnel, software or data to provide the highest possible level of service.
