Matrix specializes in building innovative geographic decision support and operational productivity tools for applications in government, water resources, transportation, environmental and facilities management sectors. Understanding and representing how projects, people, and places interact is the cornerstone Matrix’s approach to Geographic Information System (GIS). Matrix’s GIS specialists use ArcGIS, the world’s most powerful suite of mapping software developed by Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri) along with advanced Internet technology and open source software to visualize data in increasingly smarter and efficient ways. Using ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Server, and ArcGIS Collector, Matrix provides data collection, storage, and visualization solutions across multiple platforms (desktop, Web, and mobile devices).

Matrix uses GIS as a tool to reach into data, extract value from any spatial component, and then visualize how that data relates to the real-world. Drawing upon the collective experience of our scientists, engineers, and GIS specialists, Matrix supports clients’ needs regardless of project size and/or complexity.

GIS system design and development requires a dual-focus approach. A properly built GIS system offers clients improved workflow, increased data integrity, enhanced communication, and broader access to information. Our unique approach to GIS implementation gives our clients the options they need while saving them licensing costs and hosting fees. We don’t create proprietary systems that lock users into years of maintenance costs, but free them to focus on the data within the systems.

Specific GIS applications offered by Matrix include:

Well Siting Analysis – Identification of optimum locations for water well(s) by combining current and future groundwater demands with geospatial and water quality data
Field Data Collection – Collection of field data with sub-meter accuracy using ArcGIS tools in the field and desktop software to post-process the data for improved accuracy
Data Conversion – Conversion of data from varying software platforms, disparate sources and/or projections to GIS format without losing the integrity, structure, or quality of the data
Project Mapping Needs – Mapping services for a wide variety of projects
GIS Services – Support for software installation, training, data collection and documentation, hardcopy map production, mapping application development, and cloud-based data storage techniques
Document Storage/Data Portal – Creation of a one-stop shop for our clients’ information storage and dissemination needs.
