Earth Analytic SmartFootprint™ Tools


Weighted overlay toolset for ArcGIS Desktop that generates a hierarchical suite of raster ‘cost surfaces’, or heat maps, representing relative plan/route/site suitability.

ROUTE FINDER (See Demo Video!)

Plan/route/site selection tool that automates route selection through least cost path and corridor analysis.


Plan/route/site reporting tool that displays and summarizes the type, identification, and stationing of line crossings and provides an itemized estimate of construction costs.


Route profile tool that generates an elevation profile and an associated data table for a proposed route.


Site selection tool that delineates and ranks zones of relative suitability for locating facilities.


Site assessment tool that characterizes the physiography (e.g. average slope, cut/fill parameters) and relative suitability (summary statistics for SmartFootprint™ scores) of zones defined by the SiteFinder tool.

Earth Analytic SmartFootprint™ Data Bundles

SmartFootprint™ Data Bundles are integrated sets of environmental and economic suitability GIS datasets that support optimized planning, construction and management.

  • Plug and play input to SmartFootprint™ ArcGIS Server & Arc GIS Desktop Extensions
  • Thematic map overlays and web services
  • Input to custom GIS workflows


Color-coded heat maps combine many environmental and engineering criteria, and are used to guide plans, routes, and facilities construction. Examples:

  • Slope
  • Transportation
  • Land Use & Zoning
  • Water Resources


Suite of input datasets and derived criteria rasters (e.g. stream proximity) used to create a final (default) SmartFootprint™ Route Selection cost surface for the project area.


Suite of input datasets and derived criteria rasters (e.g. contiguous zones of moderate slope) used to create a final (default) Facility Site Selection SmartFootprint™ cost surface for the project area.
