Watearth provides full-suite text and graphics editing for community outreach and interpretive signage purposes. Award-winning, Watearth’s interpretive signs are tailor-made to meet both client vision and grant requirements. We coordinate community events, providing the necessary communications and marketing staff to produce educational materials like posters, brochures, and presentation. Our technical experts are seasoned public speakers.

Watearth’s staff have trained tens of thousands in environmental and water resources topics through ASCE seminars and webinars related to modeling, design, and best management practices; and through project-specific courses designed for client staff, often related to maintenance.

Watearth incorporates GIS as a framework for gathering, managing, and analyzing project-area and regional geographic characteristics and potential project impacts upstream and downstream. We staff a full-time dedicated GIS expert to provide our clients with quick and accurate turnaround of deliverables, many of which rely heavily on GIS. All exhibits, maps, and models are GIS-based and tailored to our Clients’ receiving GIS system. Available topographic and LIDAR data is used to supplement existing data within the project vicinity and modeling is performed to GIS standards. Though technical in nature, applications of GIS are effective when used as a tool for communicating project conditions.
