GIS (Geographical Information Systems) &

GPS (Global Positioning Systems)

GIS combines the power of a database with mapping software.  Northwest Vineyard Service uses GIS to produce very accurate vineyard maps including mapped overlays of soils, elevation, and watershed information. 

Using our sub-meter GPS we can add wells, underground utilities, drainage features, buildings, deer fences or just about anything else you would want identified on a map.  We have mapped out frost damage, soil irregularities, and stress patterns in vineyards.  These maps can be used for directing crew work, as references during management and client meetings, and as general informational maps for visitors.  In our development projects, we use these maps for planning to give our clients a visual representation of their future vineyard.  We integrate our maps with Google Earth for 3-D visuals.
