GIS and Remote Sensing

Serving stewards of western water since 1993.

Geographic information systems (GIS) add a spatial component to an expansive and diverse variety of datasets, allowing for evaluation of data over space (and often time, depending on the dataset). Remote sensing refers to data collection from a distance: monitoring conditions on the surface of the earth from a satellite or aircraft. The growing availability of remote sensing and GIS data and knowledge provides opportunities for increased understanding of agricultural and natural environments. Davids Engineering employs these datasets and various analysis techniques to increase understanding of spatial and temporal variability in water use and other characteristics of agricultural and natural resource systems. Our work in this realm often includes:
