Geospatial Analysis and Cartography

As an expert in marine geospatial analysis, CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. uses desktop, mobile, and web-based Geographic Information System (GIS) applications for spatial planning, survey design, field data collection, data management, interpretation, 2D and 3D visualization, and communication. Geospatial data analysis and visualization are a core component of our approach to projects of all sizes, serving clients in oil and gas exploration, government and non-governmental agencies, the U.S. military, port facilities, engineering firms, and utility service providers.


We employ mobile, desktop, and online tools supported by ESRI technology to collect and centralize data, conduct analyses, and communicate results. Our GIS metadata comply with International Standards Organization reporting requirements and provide information about the identification, extent, quality, spatial and temporal schema, spatial reference, and distribution of digital geographic data.

CSA has a team of geospatial analysts that produce cartographic products of the highest quality, and customized for each client and project. Examples of our products and services are listed below:
