Geographic Information System (GIS) Technology

‚Äč

GIS is a computer-based tool that provides the capability to do mapping and geographical analysis of Earth's features and events. EES uses ArcGIS, which is an integrated collection of GIS software products that provides a standards-based platform for spatial analysis, data management, and  mapping. ArcGIS is scalable and can be integrated with other enterprise systems such as work order management, business intelligence, and executive dashboards.


EES uses GIS in all of Departments of Defense and Interior projects for mapping project locations, forestry resources, prescribed burning sites, critical habitats, wetlands, archaeological sites, buried pipelines, water wells, and many other resources and values.
