As well as the precise location, a broad range of information such as tree species, health, height, canopy and trunk diameter, photographs, planting location or power line clearance can be captured during the survey. The resulting database is a powerful tool for managing trees and estimating works such as pruning and planting.
To rapidly and accurately record the locations of many trees over large areas ENSPEC operates quad bikes fitted with computers, GNSS units and reflective lasers. Due to their unique and safe setup all ENSPEC quad bikes are registered for road use.
ENSPEC systems are compatible with commercial programs such as MapInfo, Geobasemap (GBM Software), ESRI Arcview/Arcpad, Autocad and Pathfinder.
ENSPEC has the ability to establish and manage customized GIS-based tree management data systems to actively manage the client’s tree maintenance and planting operations. Data can be collected by ENSPEC personnel or by the client’s own staff, or by a combination of the two. ENSPEC’s remote data management capability means that the client’s data is processed and returned quickly, keeping crews working and keeping the client in the project driver’s seat.
ENSPEC systems ensure the client has accurate and up-to-date data at all times, as well as archived and traceable data to manage risk. ENSPEC can provide experienced project oversight as well as hardware and software systems that can stand alone or be integrated into the client’s existing management systems.
The GIS system allows for live transfer of data from the field that can be used to guide tree crews and contractors. ENSPEC can automate the processing of data, automate report writing and provide cost effective GIS programs for managing trees.
ENSPEC provides tree mapping and GIS services that use the most advanced technology available in the world.
ENSPEC can provide a comprehensive service from start to finish, including field data collection, database development and final report generation. This integrated service includes GIS overlays that are compatible with existing systems used by clients. ENSPEC can complement this with onsite printing of hard copy maps and plans up to A0 size.
ENSPEC employs an Information Technology expert with a high level of experience in database and mapping software to cope with this rapidly developing technology and provide the most innovative and effective solutions to the client.
