GIS

HortScience, Inc. uses GIS (Geographical Information Systems) to provide clients with tree assesment maps and data in a user friendly format. Using a geo-referenced aerial image as a base map, we create a point approximating each tree's location and provide longitude and latitude coordinates for each tree. This method provides only an approximate location and is not a substitute for a site planning survey when precise trunk locations are required for construction purposes.

 


 


       

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

The real power of GIS is to perform spatial data analysis.  When the location information is tied to the tree data (e.g. tree species, diameter, condition, risk rating), we can query the data and display the results of the analysis as a layer on the current map or on a new map.  With the correct data, any questions can be analyzed and expressed using GIS technology.  For additional information, contact Ryan Gilpin (ryan@hortscience.com) or download our informational GIS flier.

 

GIS uses spatial data linked to tree data to create maps that can easily show trends and areas where tree preservation may be difficult.
