CEC is an industry leader in the development of innovative database applications linked to Geographic Information Systems (GIS), providing a variety of spatial analysis and data management services to clients across many disciplines. We develop and maintain project-specific spatial databases for ecological monitoring, water resource, infrastructure, and related environmental data for many of the industries CEC serves. Our in-house GIS analysts, data managers, and software developers routinely create relational databases, perform spatial analysis, and develop custom mapping products, often working closely with field staff to integrate assessment, monitoring, and other field-derived data.

Accessible, real-time data

In addition, CEC develops and hosts custom web-based GIS applications. Examples include ecological and environmental compliance reporting systems and interactive mapping tools that allow clients to easily access and review compliance results as they are gathered and uploaded into the database. We use ArcGIS products, including desktop and web-based solutions, in conjunction with SQL database technology and other web development tools.
