Procuring, Developing, and Integrating Data

Nitsch Engineering professionals have years of experience obtaining data from federal, state, and local agencies. Their knowledge allows them to limit data redundancy and quickly get information that spatial data can provide. Nitsch Engineering will develop your data in GIS format compatible with your new or existing systems to facilitate a financial return on your data investment. Nitsch Engineering will complete GIS/GPS and GIS/CAD integration to meet your project needs.

Creating Base Maps

A well-tuned base map displaying various GIS features (roadway networks, buildings, utilities, natural resources, soils, etc.) is often the key to making early project decisions and winning review authority approvals.


GIS services are used to complete or assist a planning process to help meet area-wide planning objectives. Nitsch Engineering will leave you with an in-depth understanding of the project area. Nitsch Engineering can provide GIS support for these planning services:

  • Master Planning
  • Impact Analysis
  • Natural Resource Management
  • Cultural Resources Studies
  • Shoreline Management Plans

Enhancing Project Management

GIS technology enables a team of professionals to provide large volumes of project-related data in a timelier manner and at a lower cost to the client than previous data collection and management methods. At project completion, the client will have an information management system that provides easy access to project information, both current and historical.

Mapping for Local, State, and Federal EIS and EA Submittals

Preparing for various regulatory submittals is a challenging task. At Nitsch Engineering, we believe this is a great opportunity for collaboration between professionals. As challenging as these submittals can be, they are exciting because of the multi-disciplinary involvement necessary to create them. GIS is a perfect tool to bring collaboration to these efforts. Mapping, along with data management for these projects, can become complicated if not managed through GIS. GIS enables all scientists, engineers, architects, and planners to funnel their expertise through a GIS professional to provide quality map products and cohesive reports for your projects.
