While the underlying principles and practices have remained, the tools of the trade are constantly evolving for greater efficiency and accuracy. We stay up to date with the latest technology in Global Positioning System (GPS) and with Geographic Information System (GIS). Ruggedized tablet computers using integrated GPS and running GIS software permit us to carry the entire client database in the field, allowing for real-time recording and editing of spatial and tabular data. Back at the office, the GIS allows for the compilation and analysis of the data for reporting and mapping.
