We use current Geographical Information Systems (GIS) technology and expertise to facilitate decision making in all of our service areas.
Virtually all aspects of ecological and heritage impact assessment and monitoring involve recording or predicting the location of potential constraints in the context of proposed development.
GIS allows Biosis consultants and clients to easily visualise potential constraints and opportunities, and quantify impacts to ecological and heritage values in a repeatable and scientifically based way.
GIS software facilitates field data collection by Biosis and allows data to be analysed, assessed and presented in the context of base datasets acquired from contemporary and historical sources. These sources can be combined and extrapolated to model ‘what if’ scenarios.
Spread across our local offices, our GIS team consists of professionals proficient in the use of both esri ArcGIS and MapInfo software. GIS team members work closely together to share local knowledge of available data sources and associated issues, as well as maintaining a consistent, best practice approach to spatial data management and analysis.
We maintain an enterprise GIS platfom to embed location intelligence into all aspects of the business.
