Geographic Information Systems (GIS) allow clients to visualize, analyze and display spatial data to make better decisions, improve communications and maintain their data in a more cost-effective method. A client can easily access data formerly stored on hard-copy maps and drawings, in spreadsheets or CAD files and display them on their desktop, cloud or mobile device. HRC is an Esri Business Partner and utilizes their full suite of software.

HRC’s GIS team has the expertise to develop GIS applications and integrate your spatial data to meet your specific needs. The GIS Department serves in a supporting role for HRC’s civil, environmental and transportation related engineering clients. For example, by selecting a sewer pipe, you not only get its location but also the pipe’s diameter, length, type of material, age, elevation, condition and direction of flow.
