GIS Mapping Services
GIS Services also called Digital Mapping Services, have been provided by Trans Texas Surveying & Mapping for over 10 years. Our clients have unitized lease mapping services to help manage the numerous tracts involved in the energy business, which has led to mapping pipelines and facilities all over the USA.
We specialize in High Consequence Areas and have been pioneers in providing quality assurance and address verification to ensure that mailed pipeline notifications are sent to all required addresses. These notifications are required to inform individuals, schools and businesses within a specific distance from a pipeline of proper safety procedures to follow in the event of any potential hazard. We have GIS technicians and analysts and have innovated the use of GIS to manage all of our Survey Grade data allowing the first synergism between GIS and Land Surveying.
Survey Grade Data
Paper Maps - Digial Data - Metadata
GIS has helped us pioneer the use of survey-grade GPS data to help our clients in many ways. Paper maps are always available and we always have prided ourselves in providing digital data in any format based on the specific client needs. We feel that any client that hires us, has the right to the data that results from our work in any format they choose. This has helped in the area where our clients have their own GIS base maps and we provide SHP files and or geodatases.
High Consequence Areas
When surveying any pipeline project, we also will locate HCA (High Consequence Areas) and help our clients with compliance when it comes to notification of land owners, schools, or whatever the client or compliance needs are. GIS combined with land surveying is key to this process. This is a service we have provided even outside the State of Texas as compliance is a mapping function, and we make the best maps and have the best QA/QC team for checking our data and verifying that the clients are mailing to the correct areas, and have the proper type of pipe in the areas where needed.
Prior to most any exploration and production company making decisions to stake well locations and make units for pooling in any leases, the value of having the leases mapped has been a function we perform with the help of our sister company Digital Mapping Services, LLC. In 2008, we mapped over 100,000 leases and once again, with our GIS base map, and surveying knowledge, we have produced the highest quality lease maps so they can be used by the survey crews to expedite the process of getting the permit processed and getting the product to the marketplace.
T-4 Mapping Texas Rail Road Commission
This is a process that the Texas Railroad Commission requires that all transmission lines are mapped and provided to the agency so they can have a base map of where pipelines are located. Through our sister company, Digital Mapping Services, LLC, we were the First to be certified by the State of Texas to provide this service. Since that time, we have performed many T-4 compliance maps for a variety of clients.
