DEA integrates data in a variety of two- and three-dimensional formats customized for project needs and client requirements. Data products are provided via hard copy (paper) and on digital media in file formats compatible with current industry standards such as ESRI ArcGIS, Bentley MicroStation and Autodesk AutoCAD.
To add value to mapping products, DEA uses GIS as an integrated tool to help our clients and project managers organize, view, manage and analyze their data. DEA applies advanced graphics, diverse database sets, and programming tools to mapping projects and holds or has access to large databases that can be used to support client projects.
DEA has an enterprise license of ESRI products and uses many GIS tools such as ArcGIS at the advanced ArcInfo level with extensions such as 3D Analyst and Spatial Analyst, AutoCAD Map, Manifold GIS, and Google Earth data integration. Industry standard FGDC compliant metadata is provided to document the work for future use.
