Happy GIS Day! GIS or Geographic Information Systems like ArcGIS, according to its creator Esri, are a framework for analyzing, visualizing, and managing geographical data.


At PlanIT Geo™, the Geospatial Services team utilizes ArcGIS in our everyday activities to analyze, map, and manage tree canopy, prioritization, and planting data. 

GIS and Urban Forestry Consulting

But, it’s not only the Geospatial Services team that harnesses the awesome capabilities of GIS. This past week, a few of us from PlanIT Geo conducted a webinar that went into depth of how the whole PlanIT Geo team uses GIS in our everyday urban forestry consulting activities. Maegan Blansett from our Geospatial Mapping Services Team, Rocky Yosek from our Tree Inventory and Assessments Team, and Abel De La Mora from our TreePlotter™ Software Team discussed how GIS brings our whole company together on a daily basis.

Celebrating GIS Professionals

GIS Day is celebrated around the country and around the world to recognize the amazing accomplishments of GIS professionals and students, tackling a range of relevant topics such as COVID19 tracking, forestry, urban planning, and conservation to name a few.


PlanIT Geo contributed a map of tree canopy change in downtown Denver to the map gallery for this year’s GIS Day celebration with the University of Colorado, Boulder. Check out the exciting GIS day events happening around the world today and this week through Esri’s GIS Day webpage.
