Data Management, Visualization, and Analysis

Today's projects involving the natural and engineered environment require the collection, verification, validation, organization, visualization, and analysis of large sets of data from diverse sources. Our professionals develop systems that analyze disparate data in a common context and transform that data into actionable information. By providing a bridge to access and understand the conditions observed and aid decision makers, regulators, interested stakeholders, and the general public, we can generate a common understanding of complex site conditions and develop the methods to address them.

Geosyntec provides data management, analysis, and visualization services for a broad range of project applications, including:

  • Environmental site assessment and remediation;
  • Stormwater management;
  • Risk assessment;
  • Permitting and compliance;
  • Waste disposal;
  • Construction quality control;
  • Pipeline installation and monitoring;
  • Sediment investigation and remediation;
  • Disaster loss estimation; and
  • Litigation support.

Many of our specialists in data management and analysis are also subject matter experts in scientific and engineering disciplines who routinely resolve technical issues confronting project proponents. We have concluded that data management work products developed by our professionals with expertise in environmental science and engineering, including geotechnical instrumentation, vapor intrusion investigations, groundwater flow, and contaminant fate and transport modeling, produce defensible analyses that are valued by our clients as they bring a practitioner's understanding of a project’s overall objectives. The combination of our extensive project implementation experience and our data management technology expertise allows our team to craft a cost-effective, quality data management solution for the full life of the project.

Our data management professionals specialize in application development, data visualization, and statistical analysis using a range of technologies, including:

  • Desktop and enterprise relational database design and development;
  • Desktop, web, and mobile Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for organizing, visualizing, and analyzing geospatial data; and
  • Two-, three-, and four-dimensional data modeling and visualization software.

We apply these technologies and expertise in several services, including:

  • Real-time data visualization and analysis;
  • Electronic field data collection;
  • Web and mobile dashboard design;
  • Data management workflow review and auditing; and
  • Automated data quality screening and interaction with data validation.

Advancing the State of the Practice

Our database management specialists collaborate with specialists in other disciplines to develop new applications that provide our clients with greater insight into their data. Our interdisciplinary approach allows site owners with soil and groundwater remediation issues, attorneys with extensive document review requirements, and contractors with rigid quality reporting obligations to optimize their geocoded data.

We frequently provide training to our clients and advance the industry at large through seminars and short courses. Our specialists have authored multiple technical papers illustrating the integration of data management technology with scientific and engineering applications and our practitioners routinely present case studies at technical conferences and industry meetings as well as provide auditing services for our customers’ data management workflows.

Geosyntec developed the Tracker ™ family of construction data management tools, including WallTracker ™ and GroutTracker ™. These tools have been successfully deployed to support infrastructure improvement projects such as the Herbert Hoover Dike Rehabilitation and the Center Hill Dam and Wolf Creek Dam repairs. The Wolf Creek Information Management System won the 2013 Innovation Award from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
