Since inception in 1980, ENPLAN has led the region in the implementation of cutting-edge environmental planning and geospatial technologies.
Our firm pioneered development of analytical methods for environmental impact assessment and integrative mitigation under CEQA and NEPA. This occurred well before definitive guidelines were formulated and the courts resolved the multiplicity of regulatory gaps following the legislation. We have always held true to the original intent of these and other foundational environmental laws, including the responsible development of viable mitigation measures requisite to the preclusion of adverse impacts. This commitment has led our environmental team to recognition throughout the North State for expert compliance documentation and trusted permitting support.
ENPLAN was first in the North State to develop broad coverage of high-resolution aerial imagery and digital elevation model data to enable intelligent planning, development and resource analysis. These datasets are used extensively and regularly to support a wide array of activities undertaken by our environmental and geospatial teams on behalf of clients. Our geospatial datasets are also used by all levels of government as well as landowners, engineering and architecture firms, geoscience and natural resource specialists and others concerned with land-use optimization, resource assessment and regulatory administration. ENPLAN is also the first in the North State to have developed an independent web map platform, MapPort®, capable of hosting geospatial data at whatever scale meets client needs. The MapPort platform currently hosts specialized maps used by clients in both private and public sectors, including all levels of government.
The goal of ENPLAN is to always be known for strategic vision, capacity for innovation, and thoroughness in the realization of client objectives.
This is backed by continuing substantial investment in data, information technology, prerequisite software, equipment, a host of specialized contributing/supporting services, training, and attracting the best qualified team members available. Our mission is clear and mutually reinforced by all within the ENPLAN community.
