GIS Services & Data Visualization
A Geographic Information System (GIS) combines hardware, software, and information in order to collect, analyze, and display spatial data. GIS is increasingly in demand across virtually all projects, and EPPR offers specialized GIS services that include data mining, management and analysis, thematic mapping and data visualization, database design, geocoding, geostatistical analysis and technical support. GIS experts at EPPR contribute to a wide-range of projects across most of the Institute’s business groups and for a wide-range of external clients.
These specialized services, supported by our data resources and expertise, offer unique analyses and visuals for topics such as planning and economic development, housing, business, and industry patterns and demographics.
EPPR’s extensive data expertise also provides high-quality data visualization and reporting formats for customized graphs, easy-to-update data linkages, and online data visualization platforms. EPPR uses a wide variety of secondary data from state and federal agencies, along with custom surveys for clients, and applies various methods and software tools to help clients see and understand this data. Proper data visualization techniques quickly communicate information clearly and effectively allowing the client to spend more time developing their policies or solutions and not sifting through large amounts of data. Data visualizations can be delivered via web pages, spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, or hardcopy reports that can be professionally designed.
