Johnson Engineering Now Has a Certified GIS Professional (GISP) on Staff

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

Johnson Engineering has been providing Geographic Information Systems (GIS) solutions and consultation services for private clients, local, regional, and state agencies since the mid-1990s. We utilize GIS technology to visualize, analyze, and interpret spatial data and imagery from a variety of sources in innovative ways to solve problems, answer questions, and perform complex calculations for our clients. GIS underpins many of today’s technology systems and provides perspective and insights not available through non-spatial techniques.

Geospatial technologies are rapidly changing and with each passing year, advances in GIS reveal exciting new possibilities. GIS professionals must be adaptable to an ever-changing technological landscape and be prepared to engage in continuing education in order to stay current on the newest trends, techniques, and new ways of optimizing and employing GIS technology. This is precisely why our senior GIS Analyst, Paul Lohr, recently became a Geographic Information Systems Certified Professional (GISP). Through his years of experience at Johnson Engineering, and technical expertise in GIS, he was able to successfully pass the certification exam and meet the standards for and professional practice established by the GIS Certification Institute (GISCI). The GISP level of accreditation is the predominant and nationally recognized professional affiliation for the GIS industry.

Paul and the GIS team play a key role in helping our engineers, scientists, and ecologists develop creative ways to spatially enable our clients and their information. The goal is to develop unique, spatial methods for meeting their planning, permitting, mitigation, reporting, and compliance needs. Our GIS team helps turn geographic information into a valuable resource to be used as an everyday tool. We utilize ESRI’s ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Online mobile technology to provide an array of mapping, data management and spatial analysis solutions. Mobile and web-based online mapping displays specific GIS data layers to standard web browsers, iOS and Android tablets and phones, thereby greatly expanding data accessibility in the field.

GIS is a technology that helps us do our jobs more efficiently and accurately. We strive to find ways to accomplish more with smaller budgets, and GIS is a tool that has delivered success to our clients for a wide range of engineering, environmental, surveying and water quality aspects of their projects.
