Knudson, LP uses GIS extensively in every single planning project. We have trademarked a product called SmartMaps™, which is a layered map for a given project or property that tells the whole story of the property in an accessible way. GIS mapping is a vital part of our due diligence process because it enables us to make informed design and policy decisions.
We take into account current and historical geographic features as well as current and historical non-tangible features like census data in order to come up with a true and accurate picture of the property. It is from this picture that we can begin develop the end of the movie and give our clients a vision for what could be.
