a bit of an explanation

Environmental Monitoring

Environmental monitoring is used in the preparation of environmental impact assessments

MIA Consulting’s environmental monitoring services include the collection of data, samples, and images; laboratory analysis; database creation and maintenance; data analyses; pertinent literature review; and interpretation of results.

We help design and carry out ecological studies, specializing in (but not limited to) plant-insect interactions and plant-plant interactions.

Our team has conducted monitoring studies on a wide array of environmental subjects across diverse landscapes. Past study sites have included remote locations such as Hells Canyon and the Clearwater Drainage where we monitored study plots for weeks at a time. We believe in being hands-on, flexible, well-trained/educated, and extremely thorough to better understand and address complex environmental issues.

GIS Services Tell Your Story

We use the latest GIS technologies to help our clients best manage their situations. We can help improve communication and efficiency between different teams, departments, disciplines, professional fields, organizations, and the public using GIS-based products and maps.

Environmental Monitoring Find Out What's Goin' On!

We travel to designated regions, establish field sites following pre-determined protocols, employ GIS/GPS and custom data managers to conduct monitoring (including site characterization, plant/insect identification, and plant/insect variable measurements), analyze all resulting data, conduct pertinent literature reviews, and compile all results in final reports in the context of results found region- or world-wide.

Database Development Customizable

For those systems not based in GIS, we consolidate existing and fragmented databases to better and more efficiently meet the needs of the client. If no system is currently in place, we create (and can maintain) completely customizable databases.
