Area and Corridor Studies


The industry’s most comprehensive search of 1,700 environmental databases —
including hundreds of sources available only from EDR — is available for large sites too.

Area and Corridor studies provide fast and accurate review of large properties (those longer than 1 mile or greater than 1.5 square miles). With an improved, familiar format, important information is easier to find.



Recent updates to Area and Corridor Study reports include:

  • Improved presentations of distance and direction of plotted sites
  • Simplified navigation to find the information you need quickly
  • Summary listing of sites to easily review search results

EDR supports  large scale project with these additional options:

  • Database file (DBF) integration with your GIS system
  • User-specified search distances (choose ASTM standard search distances or customize search distances to meet your project needs)
  • Historical aerials, city directories, Sanborn maps and historical topographic maps for your area
  • Well data (USGS and state water wells) and public water supplies
  • Key maps for improved navigation
