What is geospatial technology? It is a term used to describe the range of modern tools contributing to the geographic mapping and analysis of the Earth (AAAS, 2017). These technologies have been evolving since the first maps were drawn in prehistoric times. Modern technology now provides us access to satellite imagery, LiDAR data, historic aerial photography, macro and micro scale geographic information, and countless other data sets to create highly detailed maps for planning, development, and conservation. Advances in geospatial technology have also been a boon to academic research, particularly in the field of archaeology, New Mayan megalopolis discovered.
In the later half of 2017, HEnv invested in state of the art hardware and software to catapult our firm into the geospatial mapping sector. We use the Trimble Geo7x for recording data in the field and ArcGIs software to produce the maps in the office. We can attain sub-foot accuracy!! All done with "Tried and True" boots on the ground and fingers on the key board. Additionally, we rely on our friends at Duncan-Parnell to provide expert support and service when needed.
