GIS Water Resource Applications

PACE is highly specialized in the field of GIS, and has a team of specialists with a solid background in GIS with applications in water resources.  PACE’s GIS team contains over 25 years of combined experience using ESRI’s ArcGIS suite of products.  PACE GIS provides support for our engineering projects which include comprehensive watershed and flood protection planning, design and analysis including complex hydraulics, fluvial geomorphology, river and stream mechanics analysis, hydrologic modeling, design of new and innovative hydraulic facilities, and urban stormwater management systems.   PACE GIS also provides GIS consulting services such as needs assessment, database creation, database maintenance, spatial analysis, cartography, and custom application development.

Our continued research in the area of GIS provides PACE with a practical understanding of complex water resource systems which allows us to focus our solutions on the “cause” rather than merely treating symptoms.  We have specialized in integrating custom solutions for numerous clients with routine procedures in database creation & maintenance, spatial analysis and cartographic products.  PACE GIS takes the complexity out of complex problems and produces the results that exceed expectations.

The PACE team includes personnel who are recognized as leading experts in the field, providing consultation to many public works and water resource agencies throughout the western United States and internationally, as well as featured speakers at many technical conferences in the field.
