Data analysis and visualisation

The majority of the time data needs to be analysed before you can see patterns in it and get the full value from it. This often means combining multiple datasets together.

Spatial and statistical analysis – we can analyse data for statistical or spatial patterns within it. These can then be used to get a better understanding of the data and any patterns that may exist.

Multi Criteria Evaluation (MCE) – We can help to evaluate sites where the environmental constraints are either high or low by combining data from different sources. We can then evaluate the results to see if each site meets the criteria of suitability. This can help with site selection.

Spatial Decision Support Systems (sDSS) – We can help to design systems to help with the decision making process. The sDSS contains data and a computer model to help users make decisions more easily.
