ESA helps clients understand, interpret, and communicate spatial information across a range of environmental applications.
We provide a variety of geospatial services to effectively capture, inventory, analyze, visualize, and manage information through the project life cycle and beyond. Supporting all of ESA’s practice groups, our geospatial team works closely with hydrologists, scientists, and engineers to strategize and solve complex issues while incorporating state-of-the-art technologies. We employ a detailed focus on client and project requirements to ensure cartographic design, visualizations, and geodata tools are valuable as either companion or stand-alone products.
From real-time field data tracking to high-quality cartographic maps for environmental reporting to advanced remote sensing and image processing of drone data fed into interactive online applications―we implement practical and proven solutions to meet end-users’ needs.

The ESA Drone Program has recently added three 5-band precision sensors to our fleet, which will support a range of natural resource assessments. With this gimbal technology mounted on our DJI Inspire 2 drones, we can collect visual band (RGB) imagery as well as vegetation indices with near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy (or RedEdge), including normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), a method of determining whether an area contains live green vegetation.
With the FAA’s implementation of the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) system, the FAA will be able to grant faster authorizations while maintaining the safety of the National Airspace System.
