GIS Mapping and Analysis

Whenever you’re dealing with complex or large amounts of information and data, it can be difficult to make sense of it all. That’s where EHS Support’s data visualization and reporting tools come in. Thanks to a variety of advanced data management systems, we can now quickly and efficiently create informative and interactive charts, graphs, and maps that can simplify your information and allow for confident, data-driven decision making.

GIS MAPPING AND ANALYSIS

For us, GIS is not just a stand-alone service that we offer, but part of a comprehensive toolkit that we use to solve problems. This approach allows us to draw from a wide range of disciplines and technologies to develop tools and solutions that are task-focused and streamlined. Data can be collected in the field with Fulcrum mobile sampling apps, loaded directly into ArcGIS Online for analysis, and then loaded into our EQuIS database for QC and storage. Data can then be used for desktop GIS or report-ready tables. This interconnected system of applications allows us to be flexible and always use the most appropriate tool for a task. It also allows us to take data from the field to a final product with a maximum efficiency and minimal chance of human error.

DATA MANAGEMENT

EHS Support utilizes EarthSoft’s EQuIS data management system—one of the most widely used in the environmental industry. Centralized data management means that data is stored and managed in a single unit or database, which is accessible from multiple points. This form of data management allows us to implement more efficient forms of organization so data can be stored and retrieved easily, and ensures a single, authoritative data source. Its consistent structure supports process automation and the creation of custom tools that leverage data stored in the database.

DATA VISUALIZATION

Having all relevant data in one place is only helpful if you’re able to make sense of it. EHS support utilizes a variety of platforms to create web-based data visualization tools. These include web-based maps, operations dashboards, compliance dashboards, and many others. These visualization tools can be used to interact with the data, allowing users to look for trends and spatial distribution of data. Having the data readily accessible allows decision-makers to comb through large volumes of information without requiring a background in programming or statistics.

A Dedicated, Tech-Savvy Team

Our capacities include extensive use of ArcGIS Online platforms, like webmaps and operations dashboards, that provide the client team access to data and analysis in real time. Using statistical software (such as R) and data management software (primarily EQuIS), we provide statistical analysis and delivery of graphics and tables in standardized reporting structures, which can be leveraged for real time evaluation and rapid response by project teams. We work hard to integrate disparate data sources, provide confidence in the data and analysis, and help your organization make informed, focused decisions.

Our Project Experience

Data Visualization and Connectivity

Data Visualization and Connectivity

Data visualization and connecting project teams and stakeholders with information is critical to decision making. Effective data visualization is about making the patterns and answers obvious. Through the use of specialized software, we help teams connect and visualize environmental and operational data. Our capacities include the use of ArcGIS Online platforms to allow for real-time data access and analysis. As a result, information gets to your users and decision makers as quickly as possible.

Technology Selection for Informed Decisions

Technology Selection for Informed Decisions

We help you choose the right technology to improve decision making, increase performance, and enhance your risk management. Our experts strive for efficiency, improving the quality of data collected and the speed in which that data is analyzed and used in decision making. We also advise on how best to use information technology to achieve your business objectives, ensuring this technology is custom-tailored to the needs of your organization and integrated for informed, timely decision making.

System Integration

System Integration

The last thing you need is another system or tool supported by multiple interfaces. Using your existing tools to leverage other data collection devices — such as remediation or industrial process programmable logic controller (PLC) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems — we can integrate data sources to provide an unrivaled capacity to support advanced data analysis and decision making.

Effective Collection of Field-Based Data

Effective Collection of Field-Based Data

Our mobile data collection tools and use of Fulcrum-based systems make surveys and sampling more efficient and accurate. Whether it’s topographic survey information, field screening, subsurface geologic information, or use of field-based sensors, our systems provide for effective data management and real-time analysis. Integration of field-based data collection with web-mapping technology gives you an interactive and intuitive interface for viewing results in real time, allowing for more accurate real time decisions.
