CEMML is highly capable in spatial analysis, including geographic information systems (GIS). We can provide development and management of databases, modeling, analysis, web application design, and digital and print cartographic products.
GIS and Spatial IT Services
Web Application Development
- Design and development of customized, web-based interactive map applications and viewers, including mobile applications for mission and program support.
- Design and development of web applications for Esri’s ArcGIS Online platform or customized deployment.
Spatial Analysis & Modeling
Creation of GIS model and map products using remotely sensed data, digital orthophotos, satellite imagery, and aerial photography.
- Use of spectral imagery and LiDAR to develop land cover, wetland delineation, and vegetation communities; model soil erosion, fire risk and behavior, biodiversity studies, floodplain analysis, climate change effects; analyze cultural/archaeological sites.
- Specific expertise in surface danger mapping and adept at operating specific U.S. Army systems in relationship to Integrated Training Area Management (ITAM) efforts.
Cartographic Product Creation
- Depiction of land conditions and installation restrictions to assist with mission and installation planning and decision-making.
- Products include, but are not limited to, military installation maps, National Environmental Policy Act maps, installation atlases and map books, biological assessment maps, Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan maps, and media-linked PDF maps.
- Development of U.S. National Vegetation Classification (NVC) maps at the alliance level, 100 and 500 year flood maps, wetland delineation, land cover, and other resource mapping are a few specialized capabilities.
Data Development & Standardization
- Development and management of complex databases.
- GPS and field data collection, geocoding, and on-screen digitization.
- Building of Esri ArcGIS ArcObjects/.NET compiled and Python-based script applications and tools.
- Expertise in complying with Spatial Data Standards for Facilities, Infrastructure, and Environment (SDSFIE).
Latest CEMML Stories
An Environmental Assessment for Non-native and Noxious Plant Species Management, developed by former CEMML biologist Maia Lipschutz, has paved the way for several environmental projects on Beale Air Force base to finally be realized.
On July 8th, a team of CEMML staff members gathered to celebrate the retirement of Cynthia Melcher and her editing and design contributions. As a send-off reflective of CEMML’s commitment to service, the gathering took place in Colorado’s Phantom Canyon for a day of volunteer trail maintenance hosted by The Nature Conservancy.
During a recent webinar, CEMML Ecologist and Project Manager, Dave Jones, along with co-contributors Shara Howie and Pat Comer from NatureServe, discussed the latest edition of the handbook, “Conserving Biodiversity on Military Lands – A Guide for Natural Resource Managers.”
