GIS Land Use Planning - Right-of-Way

IDT provides GIS and land use planning capabilities to Union Pacific. Utilizing cutting edge GIS, 3D modeling, and land use research and planning, IDT works to expand the boundaries of the railroad's understanding of its infrastructure and track components.

IDT mapped Union Pacific's right-of-ways throughout Lincoln County, Nevada, including their currently active as well as inactive right-of-ways. At the time, Union Pacific was unaware of these inactive right- of-ways; thus, IDT was able to save them money by directing expansion to these forgotten areas.

IDT has also used GIS technology on other projects. We mapped the areas of BLM land that were disturbed during repairs from the 2005 flood. IDT also created habitat maps for endangered species, specifically the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher and the Desert Tortoise.
