Broadband Mapping | Agricultural Application Mapping | Recreational Mapping | Utility Mapping | Future Mapping

Broadband Mapping
GIS Midwest was contracted by the Kandiyohi County Economic Development Partnership to create an online interactive GIS map of the Broadband Internet Connectivity in Kandiyohi County, Minnesota.  The GIS map we constructed shows service providers, coverage areas for each provider, contact information and links to provider Web Pages.  With this GIS map, a potential client can navigate to an area of interest on the GIS map or perform an address search in order to locate which broadband providers service their area.

Agricultural Application Mapping
GIS Midwest has been working alongside Anez Consulting, Inc. to create GIS maps for Agriculture Business.  These GIS maps display the Farm Service Agencies “Common Land Units”, aerial photographs, section-township-ranges, roads, lakes, ditches and wetlands, among other pertinent information.  These GIS maps highlight fields based on the owners, the growers or the land available for manure application.  Additionally, each field is assigned a number for easy data management planning and record keeping.

Recreational Mapping
GIS Midwest was contracted by the Kandiyohi County Economic Development Partnership to create an online interactive GIS map of the Recreational Trails and Points of Interest in Kandiyohi County.  The GIS map we created displays bicycle, snowmobile, cross-country ski and horse trails, along with the Glacial Ridge Scenic driving route.  This GIS map also displays hospitals, county parks, lodging, resorts, campgrounds, parking areas, gas stations, snowmobile dealers and boat accesses; each of these items can be clicked on to view additional links and information.  This GIS map can be viewed at: http://gis.co.kandiyohi.mn.us/maps/kanditrails/

Utility Mapping
GIS Midwest completed a large sanitary and storm sewer inventory project for the City of Willmar, Minnesota.  This project involved determining the coordinate and elevation values, as well as descriptions of 5,260 sewer structures and 97 city benchmarks.  Our survey field crews recorded inventory data on every sewer structure – documenting the number of pipes in each structure and their sizes, depths and condition, and photographed the inside of each structure.  Following the structure inventory, there were huge amounts of data that needed to be organized.  GIS mapping proved to be an excellent and efficient way to organize this large volume of data.

Future Mapping
As technology progresses further and further into our daily lives, new and powerful applications of GIS may apply.  GIS Midwest will help you and your organization find innovative ways to implement the principles of GIS to your daily life.
