Hill Country Geospatial Solutions Hill Country Geospatial Solutions performed a marketing analysis of 15 counties in the Central Texas region to determine locations meeting certain demographic criteria important to the Capitol Area Council Boy Scouts for new membership recruitment.
Storm Water Solutions Storm Water Solutions developed a model to determine the best locations for storm water detention ponds on the Texas State University-San Marcos campus.  We utilized hydrological modeling and soil erosion analysis combined with the campus 10 year master plan to locate the ponds in positions that would detain the runoff from impervious surfaces and soil erosion sediments on campus.
