GIS Services

PMC staff provides analytical mapping capabilities to many jurisdictions and governmental agencies. The resource and planning issues faced by these entities are often interdependent and affect various parts of localities in different ways. The use of a geographic information system (GIS) allows information to be gathered on a parcel or neighborhood basis and then analyzed across a locality as a whole. PMC has the ability to integrate data sets from numerous and varied sources and incorporate them into a GIS with a single, consistent frame of reference. By maintaining the database in this manner, information from various sources may be overlaid and referenced without adjusting for different map projections, scales, and resolution. 

We do a bunch of other cool things too...

  • Natural resources studies
  • CEQA/NEPA compliance
  • Mitigation
  • Regulatory permitting compliance
  • Planning
  • GIS
