Welcome to GRS

  • Lassen Peak, Lassen Vocanic National ParkGRS, located in Arcata CA, was founded in 1989 to provide superior-quality resource information development, technical, and consulting services.
  • GRS is a leader in the implementation of ecologically-based field data collection methodologies designed to provide comprehensive, quantitative, and detailed species-specific cover estimates of the botanical and abiotic features that comprise the ecosystems we must accurately describe.

  • GRS offers "state-of-the-art" land cover mapping services based on the application of our unique Discrete Classification Mapping Methodology in combination with traditional vendor provided applications; GRS maps (not models) species-specific cover as a continuous variable.

  • GRS offers complex resource analyses that include natural resource inventory, growth projection, long-term sustained yield projection, long-term harvest scheduling, and change detection.
  • GRS offers total GIS solutions including GIS consulting; data set development, analysis, quality control, and processing; application development; and software sales.

  • GRS has extensive experience designing and developing superior solutions for a wide range of applications, users, and organizations.

Redwood National and State Parks Vegetation Classification and Mapping Project Completed !  More than Just a Color-coded Type Map!

December, 2013 - The Redwood National and State Parks Vegetation Classification and Mapping Project was completed by Geographic Resource Solutions (GRS) in late June, 2013.  Multiple map data sets representing both raster pixel classification efforts and aggregated stand level mapping efforts were developed under the guidelines of the NPS National Vegetation Mapping Program.  These data sets represent a new level of detailed, quantitative, species-specific information in addition to the standard National Vegetation Classification System (NVCS) type designation(s).  GRS's use of the Discrete Classification methodology also enabled the development of individual species-specific cover component estimates by size class, canopy layer, the "bird's-eye view, and in total; as well as estimates of quadratic mean diameter and stems per acre.

 An article excerpted from the Fall/Winter 2013 Kaleidoscope Newsletter of the NPS-Klamath Network that describes more about this project may be accessed at this link.

GRS Releases Galena Forest (Biomass) Inventory and Management Plan Report

January, 2013 – In late January Geographic Resource Solutions (GRS) released the Galena Forest Inventory and Management Plan Report developed for a consortium of the Louden Tribal Council, the Galena School District, and the City of Galena, Alaska. This report describes the detailed vegetation/land cover/biomass inventory developed for approximately 1.25 million acres of wildlands in the vicinity of Galena that was used to estimate forest growth and biomass availability and project the magnitude and sustainability of future harvest levels through the end of this century. This information will provide the basis for a determination of the feasibility of developing biomass fueled power generation for the community of Galena. This Project was funded by grants from the Alaska Energy Authority and the Bureau of Land Management.
