GIS and remote sensing

Niche provides a diverse range of spatial data services with special emphasis on high resolution remote sensing. The modern suite of spatial data available to projects has the potential to not only support good decision-making and environmental assessments, but also to reduce the requirements for traditional methods of data collection (ie. costly field work).

At Niche, we have a highly skilled GIS* team supported by the ESRI suite and other specialised GIS products to bring spatial data capabilities to your project.

We have proven experience in:

  • Using GIS as a decision-support tool
  • Long-term, repeatable ecological change monitoring
  • Monitoring the effects of longwall mining on native vegetation
  • Map preparation
  • Data capture and management
  • Vegetation mapping
  • Aerial photographic interpretation (API)
  • Spatial analysis of data, including remotely sensed data
  • Species habitat modelling
  • Remote selection of work sites and access routes
  • GIS calculations and mapping for BioBanking assessment
  • Biodiversity offset mapping and offset liability estimation
