- Carp River Watershed Study (City of Ottawa)
Our firm is conducting the GIS analysis and presentation of information depicting the state and issues of the Carp River watershed. The analysis addresses issues such as the water budget, terrestrial and acquatic habitats, woodlands, stream morphology, land use and environmental constraints. Criteria modelling is being applied to assist in the development and evaluation of alternative management strategies.

- Eastern Ontario Water Resources Management Study (EOWRMS)
City of Ottawa, United Counties of Prescott-Russell, United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry - Provided GIS data analysis in an interdiscplinary team of hydrogeologists, land use planners and engineers to evaluate the state of water resources in eastern Ontario. This in-depth study of water resources used GIS to develop a regional water budget model that was then used to evaluate the capacity of the region to support development and the identify risks to degradation of surface water quality. The land use analysis incorporated land cover mapping derived from satellite imagery with census data on the intensity and type of agricultural activities to characterize current activities and evaluate the potential risks. The project involved extensive data analysis that was completed using ArcView and the Spatial Analyst extension.
