Geotechnical, Construction, and GIS professionals have collaborated to develop web-enabled, user-centric decision support tools that allow real-time data access, distribution, and analysis.
Collect, Collate, Analyze, and Present Vital Data in Real-Time
Geosyntec specializes in the development of productivity tools based on GIS technology to allow data collection, collation, analysis, and presentation in real-time for construction projects with significant subsurface/geotechnical considerations. Construction team decision-makers can rapidly make technical assessments based on intuitive visual interpretation of detailed, complex data.
Our professionals develop tools customized for project or technology applications that streamline the communication process. Users can track project details, promptly analyze trends, achieve CQA targets, generate geospatially accurate As-Built Drawings automatically, and measure project progress. Geosyntec’s deep understanding of the geotechnical, environmental, and water resources issues inherent in project implementation provides the impetus for development of tools that are user-friendly and facilitate interactive data visualization.

Geosyntec Streamlines Data Management and CQA at the Herbert Hoover Dike Rehabilitation
The Herbert Hoover Dike (HHD) rehabilitation project is designed to stabilize and secure the aging dike from potentially damaging severe weather events, thereby protecting residents and businesses on the southeastern rim of Lake Okeechobee. The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers Jacksonville District selected Bauer Foundation to construct a 3-mile long technology demonstration segment of the planned cutoff wall that runs vertically from the dike crest to a depth of 70 feet in certain locations.
Geosyntec developed a first-of-its-kind data management/CQA solution (WallTracker™) for Bauer on this project. Our innovation allows all HHD geospacial data (e.g., geotechnical characteristics and construction progress) to be viewed in plan and cross-sectional views. Users can navigate the views, select data to be visualized, and access data through an intuitive user interface. Our process streamlined the workflow, thereby creating a real-time a decision support environment for project managers and stakeholders.
