Geospatial Analysis and Data Visualization (GIS)
Our team provides solutions for clients in need of Geographic Information System (GIS). GIS plays an integral role in planning and decision-making processes that involve geographic locations: cities, communities, regions, or countries. Our unique capabilities encompass GIS applications that may require data collection, conversion, database creation and maintenance, mapping, and statistical modeling and analysis.
Our GIS and geospatial models are designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. This enables corporate and government leaders to more easily see, analyze, and understand patterns and relationships.
Here are just some examples of GIS-based projects led by our planners:
- Statistical models for analyzing shopping choices and predicting shopping patterns;
- Quantitative tools to evaluate the impacts of investments and policies on spatial patterns of house prices;
- Advanced algorithms to determine the cost impacts of various alternative facility sites; and
- Electronic, GIS-based surveys to identify spatial patterns in consumer activities.
Combining GIS with our spatial analytical skills enables us to provide clients with tailored deliverables backed by cutting-edge analysis. For example, we generated maps that reveal investment-ready areas of North Philadelphia, and a data visualization tool to show the impact of digital payment systems on consumers, businesses and government in 100 cities around the world.
