A geographic information system (GIS) is a conceptualized framework that provides the ability to capture and analyse spatial and geographic data. GIS applications (or GIS apps) are computer-based tools that allow the user to create interactive queries (user-created searches), store and edit spatial and non-spatial data, analyse spatial information output, and visually share the results of these operations by presenting them as maps.
Tree Survey are experts in GIS, and we use this method for almost all of our projects. Examples of how we apply GIS include but are not limited to:
- Identifying tree locations spatially.
- Generating tree protection zones (TPZ) and structural roots zones (SRZ).
- Overlaying surveys, site plans, proposed roads, utilities, and buildings on tree plans.
- Digitising and analysing development impacts (construction footprints and disturbance footprints).
