LSA Associates, Inc.

Irvine, CA, United States


LSA is a California-based employee-owned environmental consulting firm where GIS is critical to nearly every project. Our GIS Specialists are experts in solutions architecture, web and mobile application development, aerial image capture and processing, pixel classification and feature extraction, community engagement and data sharing, and advanced field data collection methods. Our geospatial skills are supported by the extensive scientific and regulatory subject matter expertise present within LSA's other professional disciplines, enabling LSA’s GIS team to produce the specialized datasets, visualizations, analyses, and applications that your organization requires to plan projects and make decisions.



If you've ever wished your organization had its own GIS department (or a bigger GIS department!) to help you collect or extract data, conduct analyses, or share results--whether through static maps and figures or dynamic web maps and apps--look no further. LSA's GIS department can be your GIS department, too. LSA's GIS team has decades of experience using Esri software to support the professionals within our internal disciplines. At LSA, biologists, planners, paleontologists, archaeologists, architectural historians, transportation planners, and experts in air quality, climate, and noise all rely on our GIS team as they guide clients through complex environmental regulations and permitting processes. We've become experts at designing database schemas and mobile apps to streamline field data collection or solicit public input using Field Maps and Survey123. We fly drones to collect imagery and then use photogrammetry and deep learning to convert those images into rich datasets in ArcGIS Pro. We use ArcGIS Dashboards and Experience Builder to develop web applications that enable our project managers to monitor progress, view field data as it's being collected, and filter, analyze, and extract the information they need to inform decisions and produce reports. We build ArcGIS Hub sites that allow our users to easily access the data and applications they need to get their work done efficiently. And of course, we produce maps... LOTS of maps.
