Since it's formation in the late 1980's, the company has dealt with a number of
land use, land management, engineering and natural resource issues facing various interest
groups along the shoreline and has contributed to the solution of many complex problems
facing individuals, businesses and government agencies who live in, work on, or deal with
the coastal zone. A major regional focus of the company has been the North American Great Lakes, where studies have been
carried out on water level fluctuations and impacts, erosion processes,
flood and erosion damages, shoreline protection, shoreline management,
emergency response, and
GIS application and development. Recent focus has been on the
development of comprehensive coastal zone databases and GIS mapping
products for a range of coastal data including shoreline classification,
land use, land use trends, and shoreline protection.
The company prides itself on the provision of a high degree of dedication to an
individual project and a commitment to quality, accuracy and efficiency in the delivery of
the final product. For larger projects where additional expertise may be required, staff
of the company participate effectively as part of a team, or as the team leader -
conducting overall project coordination and providing the client and other team members
with a single point of reference for information relating to a specific project.
The company is striving to develop a larger international focus and is looking
forward to formulating, directing, synthesizing and evaluating investigations of the many
multidisciplinary coastal issues being faced in other regions of the world.
