GIS
Consulting

We provide GIS expertise and responsive service to deliver critical geospatial information in a timely manner – allowing our clients to make effective and informed decisions.

Our team of professionals includes GIS analysts, programmers, and technicians that provide full-service geospatial solutions to a wide range of industrial, First Nation, and governmental clients.

GIS Consulting Services

Spatial data describes an extensive range of elements or business assets – e.g. roads, terrain, infrastructure, hydrology, or ecosystems. A spatial data management system maximizes the value of GIS, enabling managers to make quicker and more-confident decisions.

Our team can maintain the integrity of your spatial data with a consistent and detailed filing system that centralizes information, metadata, and data sources. This enables easy accessibility, customization, and streamlined data production so you can have maps made faster, cheaper, and more accurately.

With significant experience organizing and structuring data, along with system integration (including system architecture and design), our experts are industry leaders.

We have strict policies around data security and client confidentiality, ensuring your data remains yours – and no one else’s.

Our GIS expertise allows us to overlay various datasets to assess, understand, question, interpret, and visualize spatial data. Through this, we enhance your insight into relationships (i.e. patterns and trends), providing you with the ability to make the precise, data-based decisions you need with confidence.

Your spatial data has so much more potential than simply creating maps!

Our clients have increasingly used spatial data analysis to gain insights into additional areas of their business — identifying efficiencies and generating higher returns.

Through spatial data analysis, our clients have improved their: resource planning and allocation, facilitation of natural resource management, and communication abilities regarding important strategic information – yielding extensive cost savings.

Notably, our experienced team can analyze geospatial data to assess the suitability of a location for a specific industrial use, identify how environmental (or other) factors change over time, and determine the impact of a development on traditional land-use.

In addition to this, we can answer your complex questions about:

  • Suitability analysis;
  • Change analysis;
  • Traditional land and water use;
  • Wildlife habitats; and
  • Emergency response planning.

An effective map presents the strategic information you require – getting straight-to-the-point without any added “noise”. In addition to being accurate and up to date, this map should also clearly display the right information you need, in the format that works best for your situation.

Work with our team to ensure that you are never again missing the data or features you need, while using valuable time to read overly complex (or inaccurate) maps.

We provide a full range of digital mapping services, including:

  • Regional basemaps;
  • Two-dimensional digitizing of orthophotos;
  • Planimetric maps;
  • Topographic maps;
  • Digital terrain models (DTM); and
  • Hard-copy maps.

Our team can also provide base data, filling in any gaps with custom datasets suited to your specific needs.

A few examples of our project experience are: traditional land and water use, wildlife habitat analysis, navigation of the gravel pit approval process, and the creation of emergency response plans. Additionally, our clients commonly compile features that include access roads, transmission lines, pipelines, buildings, hydrology, and vegetation cover.

Our custom-built web mapping applications are designed to help you streamline important business processes. The wide range of datasets we possess are distilled down and paired with custom applications, allowing you to gain actionable insight into Alberta’s industries.

Project Planning

Explore a variety of datasets to enhance your project planning capabilities.

Our applications are designed to help project planners, estimators, and engineers access information that is relevant to all types of industrial projects in Alberta.

Business Intelligence

Our applications connect suppliers and producers in all geographic areas of the province.

If you’re a supplier or service provider, our applications display strategic information on proposed and active industry projects – allowing you to identify potential sales opportunities.

Health & Safety

Analyze hazards, plan for emergencies, and connect with all of the health & safety infrastructure near your worksite. No matter how remote your projects are, you can rely on our Health and Safety Planner in all emergencies to make sure that your workers are well taken care of.

LAT60explore

At Carson Integrated, we recognize that not all companies have the time and resources to approach us for our custom-built mapping applications. As such, we’ve developed LAT60explore – an interactive GIS map designed to provide you with the ease-of-use necessary to create custom maps of your various points-of-interest.

LAT60explore is an all-in-one map of Alberta’s natural resources that provides you with a bird’s-eye-view of the province’s industrial landscape. With LAT60explore, you get an up-to-date view of pipelines, powerlines, camps, sand and gravel pits, medical facilities, bulk fuel stations, well sites, weigh stations, wildlife biodiversity zones, township boundaries – and more.

We help these sectors

Indigenous Communities

We are actively involved in the collection, analysis, and ongoing management of our Indigenous clients’ traditional land-use and knowledge data. We can provide analysis and map products depicting the historical patterns of industrial activity on traditional territories.

Forestry

We work with our forestry clients to manage the day-to-day operation of their GIS. This includes multiple facets of GIS, such as: collecting data in the field, managing cutblocks through their lifecycle, and submitting spatial data to the regulator.

Pipeline

In addition to managing the GIS data for long-term pipeline route selections and construct projects, we have prepared various map and data products for them as well. A few examples of our map-related work includes: emergency response plans, identifying clubroot locations, creating cross-sections, developing watercourse plans, and producing construction progress maps.

Sand and Gravel

We prepare map-related products to support the regulatory needs of our sand and gravel clients. This can include sketch plans, development plans, cross sections, and reclamation plans. Additionally, we assist each of our clients with setting up new geodatabases to help them manage their spatial data within a GIS.

Government

We work with a range of government agencies to manage their spatial data associated with the specific programs that they provide. This includes creating spatial data, managing data in geodatabases, preparing summaries, and providing map products.

Experienced and Trusted

For 13 years, our clients have trusted us to consistently deliver high-quality service and cost-effective solutions.
