Dam Construction Information Management Systems


Collect, Collate, Analyze, and Present Vital Data in Real-Time

Geosyntec Consultants specializes in the development of GIS-based productivity tools that allow data collection, compilation, analysis, and presentation in real-time for deep foundations and other construction projects with significant geotechnical considerations. Construction team decision-makers can use these tools to rapidly make technical assessments based on the intuitive visual interpretation of detailed, complex data provided by our GIS-based technology.

Our professionals can develop customized tools for project or technology applications that streamline the communication process, both to meet project specifications and to assist contractors. With these customized tools, users can track project details, promptly analyze trends, achieve CQA targets, automatically generate geospatially accurate As-Built Drawings, and measure project progress. Our deep understanding of the construction quality control, geotechnical, environmental, and water resources challenges inherent in project implementation provides the impetus for development of tools that are user-friendly and facilitate interactive data visualization.

Award-Winning Innovation

Geosyntec practitioners are part of the team that earned the 2013 Innovation Award from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the Wolf Creek Information Management System (WCIMS), installed at a multimillion-dollar dam rehabilitation project in Russell County, Kentucky.
