GIS Integration and Mapping

GIS is a powerful tool that allows municipalities to effectively organize, visualize, and analyze map-based data to reveal patterns and detect trends with the goal of improving efficiency and saving costs. S&ME provides GIS services that are scalable, mobile, flexible, and powerful.  We can put the most important information directly into the hands of those who need it most — from the field to the office, bringing your assets and those who manage them closer together for decision making at your fingertips. Our clients appreciate our simple, yet dynamic approach to data collection, integration, and presentation, as we bring decades of engineering expertise together with 21st century GIS mapping technology to provide the next level in consulting services for our industry. 

After data is collected and integrated into a GIS system, a prioritized rehabilitation program is developed, and a schedule and cost estimate of repairs is generated. Emphasis is generally placed on reducing Infiltration and Inflow (I/I), reducing or eliminating Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO), and increasing or restoring hydraulic carrying capacity. 

Our surveyors, engineers, and planners have a wealth of experience utilizing GIS to provide cost-effective and affordable solutions to our clients. This multidisciplinary approach strengthens the final product by ensuring high positional accuracy and detailed attribute input while maximizing the short- and long- term usage of the data. S&ME has also developed customized databases and queries which facilitate the selection and prioritization of various assets based on one or more layers of condition assessment criteria.
