Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Maui Environmental Consulting offers a wide variety of GIS services including, GPS data collection and map making, aerial imagery interpretation, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and geoprocessing.
We have used sub-meter GPS units and ArcGIS software in hundreds of environmental studies. Recently we identified and inventoried Hawai'i County's scenic, viewshed, and open space resources from major roadways and other appropriate public spaces using digital photography and GPS technology. MEC then used ArcGIS to build an electronic map interface of scenic resources incorporating quanitative and qualitative field data and photographs for over 300 scenic resource locations on the Big Island.
