Due to the leadership and expertise at EcoPoint, Inc, our business now has a specific monitoring protocol that addresses our sage-grouse habitat monitoring and livestock forage monitoring, in additional to gathering select variables for carbon storage. We could have never achieved this level of efficiency and precision without the talent at EcoPoint.

Ecopoint, hands down, is one of the best companies I've had the pleasure of working with. They provide solid solutions to complex problems using tools that companies may already have access to. In the few months that I have been working with them we have already reduced our regulatory compliance exposure and were provided the tools we need in order to track our progress in a very easy to understand and use with absolutely no strings or "upcharges" attached. Give them a call with whatever problem you have and I guarantee that they will get you pointed in the right direction!

Michael and his team at EcoPoint have been exceptional in helping us understand GIS concepts and have empowered us to execute geo-spatial thinking throughout our daily workflows. Michael has an incredible vision for what can be accomplished with GIS and the expertise to make it happen. We are amateurs in understanding and implementing GIS in our workflows, and Michael helped us along with incredible patience and amazing business insights. Today we are changing our industry and solving problems that have plagued our industry for years! We have been incredibly fortunate to work with EcoPoint to achieve these goals!


The ability to build a three-dimensional GIS model is a vital part of a geographic information system. It’s possible to create a model using techniques such as Digital Photogrammetry and GIS modeling. By adding texture to your 3D model, you can give the data a better perspective and enhance the clarity of a scenario. This type of data is crucial for decision makers, valuators, and researchers.

One of the most important benefits of 3D GIS is the ability to model a large area in three dimensions. This allows users to see the environment in three dimensions. Those using 3D GIS modeling software can overlay spatial datasets for more accurate visualization. Furthermore, 3D GIS models are flexible and can be used to make real-time decisions about what to build. The technology will also help city planners and developers see how their plans will affect existing residents.
