Geospatial Analysis & Pipeline Services

With over 25 years of combined experience, Damian & Associates provides a diverse range of pipeline services including large-scale pipeline design and mapping in all phases of construction as well as regulatory studies and surveys. Using advanced technology, including submeter and RTK GPS systems, and the latest CAD and GIS Mapping software, D&A is prepared to take on projects of all sizes with full assurance that intermediate and final products comply with the latest industry standards.

Geospatial Analysis is the study of patterns, systems and relationships that exist geographically in the world around us. Geospatial datasets can be paired and represented together in a manner such that spatial phenomena can be observed and statistically modeled. Some examples of industries in which this analytic technology is applied include:

  • Engineering–modeling of utilities, topography, and other site characteristics for design optimization and identification of geographic hindrances to construction feasibility
  • Municipal Development– layering of jurisdictional and zoning boundaries with engineering, transportation and land use features for the purpose master planning
  • Environmental– compiling soils, terrain and other ecological features for impact visualization and land management decision making
  • Business & Investing– modeling of demographics and spatial diffusion as it applies to economic feasibility and the business environment

The GIS industry continues to grow and data collections methods continue to evolve, allowing more and more insight into the complex relations between our environment and each other. Our Spatial Analysts are career professionals who can help you visualize and understand the multitude of factors which contribute to your successful project.
