Our geospatial experts can provide invaluable insights to support informed decisions – giving project stakeholders a real-world, data-fed geographical representation of a proposed development. Through innovative and engaging site and/or landscape visualisations, we translate data, raw graphs, charts and numbers into contextual, easy-to-navigate image stories. This allows full ‘360 degree’ understanding of the distances, people, services and event variables or trends which could impact on a future build.
More about our geospatial visualisation, mapping and data analytics solutions
Geospatial visualisation technology has become an essential part of big data mapping, trend analysis and asset lifecycle management. Using digital tools to simplify our view of ‘what is where’ at a given time in relation to a given project, planners and designers can open up a whole new world of engagement and efficiency for clients and their end users.
Data and digital representation of our world is increasing at an incredible rate, making sense of this data is made easier when large volumes or, data from different sources are brought together into a single spatial view. The usefulness of maps is obvious when we are doing everyday activities, like travelling from A-B, arranging a location to meet, or providing someone with directions. But the logic of mapping is even more powerful when evaluating data related to bigger picture issues such as climate change impacts, how to plan for sustainable development to address societal challenges, or exploring engineering solutions to address challenges of systems resilience.

Doug Marsh Technical Director
By working collaboratively, implementing digital data collection solutions and creating data-driven GIS (Geographic Information System) and BIM or even Zero Drawing Construction modelling, we provide stakeholders with a ‘time and place’ view of a future project that is based on live or past GPS (Global Positioning System), census, weather and other available data. Visualisations can be presented as dashboards, storyboards, reports, heat maps, interactive maps and other types of interactive models to offer comprehensive geospatial data analytics and provide the context needed for crucial scoping discussions, particularly where community consultations are required.
The unique combination of our global skills and cross-discipline competencies enables us to participate in the entire planning process for any development, from preliminary investigations to design through to construction operations. Ultimately, Sweco’s geospatial solutions will help organisations take decisions that will result in a more environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable society.
