Data Interpretation, Synthesis, Visualization, and GIS

Today's challenges in the natural and engineered environment frequently require the collection, validation, organization, visualization, and analysis of large amounts of data from diverse sources. Geosyntec specializes in developing systems that turn many sources of data into actionable information. Our systems can thus provide a bridge to access and understand the conditions observed and aid decision makers, regulators, interested stakeholders, and the general public to a common understanding of complex site conditions and 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
  • Disaster loss estimation
  • Litigation support

Many of our specialists in data management and analysis are also subject matter experts in scientific and engineering disciplines who routinely work with the technical issues confronting project proponents. We have found that data management work products developed by 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 project implementation experience with 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 databases; desktop, web, and mobile Geographic Information Systems 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

In addition, our team of database management specialists continuously works with specialists in other disciplines to develop new applications that provide our clients with greater insight into the data they own. 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 the value of geocoded data.

We frequently provide training to our clients and advance 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. Our staff frequently present advanced case studies at technical conferences and industry meetings and provide auditing services for data management workflows created across the market sector.
