City of Burnaby – Burnaby Lake Rejuvenation Project
ENKON was contracted by the City of Burnaby to undertake the environmental monitoring of the Burnaby Lake Rejuvenation Project, which is a dredging project at Burnaby Lake in Burnaby, B.C. A number of GIS services were required. GIS technologies were used to create presentation graphics and for analysis by discipline experts. For example, 3D Spatial Analyst was used to create 3D renditions of the large bottom before and after dredging to be used to demonstrate the effectiveness of dredging. These figures were generated using bathymetric data collected on the lake in 2008.
Union Pacific Railroad – Environmental Mapping
ENKON has built and hosts an Environmental Management System for Union Pacific Railroad. ENKON is currently creating a rail line network for their entire operations throughout the US using ESRI’s software suite. This involves linear referencing the entire network to 0.1 mile segments using functions within the toolbox of ArcMap. In addition, rail assets, facility locations, aerial images and road networks will be included in the map layers used in the system. ArcMap, ArcCatalog, ArcGIS Server, ArcSDE, REST API, and ENKON map viewer are used to undertake the mapping for UPRR.
Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) – Whistler Olympic Park (Whistler Nordic Centre) and Access Road
Sensitive vegetation and ecosystems (e.g. old-growth forests) was mapped using ESRI GIS software suite. VANOC used this information to design facilities that minimized environmental impacts (i.e., avoided sensitive areas to the extent possible). A quantitative impact assessment was undertaken based on the GIS mapping. A layer containing the project design was overlaid on the polygons representing different vegetation/habitat types and sensitive ecosystems. The expected losses of various habitat/ecosystem types were determined using GIS to calculate the areas of overlap where project facilities impinged on each habitat type. GIS-overlays were also used to determine losses of riparian vegetation in order prepare a habitat balance (losses versus proposed compensation) and obtain federal Fisheries Act Section 35(2) authorization for bridge crossings.
