Impervious Surface Mapping
Impervious surfaces are areas where a portion of the land has been modified to reduce the land’s natural ability to absorb and hold rainfall. Environmental and permitting concerns need to be addressed as land development progresses.
Land developers, engineers and local governments are particularly concerned with these surfaces because certain projects require compliance with storm water discharge regulations; in this situation, the percentage of impervious areas based upon pre and post development may be integral. AXIS can incorporate data that has been compiled in house with land use and soils data to calculate accurate impervious surface areas along with your latest site plans.
Easily obtain map data for artificial structure areas such as driveways, parking lots and more.
Study how impervious surfaces are impacting the environment and easily depict impervious surface areas to:
- Reduce flooding of streams and lakes
- Improve and protect water quality
- Reduce stormwater runoff
- Maintain your stormwater billing databases
