Geospatial Mapping Services

Spatial data creation, analysis, and urban tree canopy assessments

PlanIT Geo™ is an industry leader in urban tree canopy assessments, green infrastructure mapping, and web-mapping applications. We provide personalized services to communities of all sizes, federal, state, and local government organizations, and even private landowners.

 

Our GIS and remote sensing specialists use high-resolution aerial and satellite imagery, LiDAR elevation data, and other geospatial datasets to create land cover data. The data provides the foundation from which we derive urban tree canopy, green/gray infrastructure, and possible planting area metrics. Information is extracted from the land cover raster data and applied to various geographic planning scales to understand distributions of tree canopy, analyze correlations of canopy cover with available environmental, socioeconomic, and demographic indicators, and locate and prioritize areas for new tree plantings.

Accurate

We use the most current high-resolution source data and perform detailed quality assurance and quality control on all datasets to ensure that our clients receive the most accurate, representative, and compatible data and information.

 

Analytical

Our analysts use GIS tools and technology to provide new insights into your community forest such as the distribution of tree canopy throughout planning areas, the opportunities provided to population sectors, and how trees are used strategically to address various issues.

 

Communication

Complex geospatial information is transformed into powerful, visual products to help our clients garner support for urban forest development, maintenance, and funding. Traditional and web-based graphics and maps are used to convey information to broad audiences.
