ALWI uses the latest Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) technology to maintain the highest standards of spatial accuracy and precision. These technologies are inseparable components of our water supply, wastewater and environmental services.
GIS is a powerful and easy-to-use tool for maintaining spatial control of multivariate data. ALWI integrates traditional analysis tools (charts, tables, and graphics) with geographic data in order to create powerful visual maps. With GIS, we quickly and easily perform four key tasks in the environmental data management process: integration of data, visualization of data, analysis of data, and presentation of data in a manner that is both attractive and effective. We update hardware and software inventories frequently and train staff regularly to ensure that changing technological capabilities are applied efficiently and professionally.
Not only does ALWI integrate GIS into our water supply, wastewater and environmental projects, but we also provide a broader range of geospatial database development and management services, as well as computer-generated visualization products. Not uncommonly such projects and services entail the development and refinement of geospatial data of a more general nature or origin. Our customized geospatial database management and visualization services benefit municipalities, other public agencies, real estate professionals, attorneys and general contractors.
