Geospatial & Landscape Analysis​

State-of-the-art Geographic Information Systems

When site developers or environmental managers seek clues to the previous use of a property or desire a better understanding of the topography underlying thick vegetation, they turn to Exponent to provide a full range of geographic information system (GIS) and spatial analytical capabilities.

How does Exponent leverage geographic analytical tools to demonstrate site analysis for clients involved in site exploration, accident investigations, or legal disputes?

Clients come to Exponent to better understand the topography of an area or to further explore an ecological or environmental issue affecting their land or job site. Our teams use a variety of cutting-edge monitoring and analysis tools, including GIS technology and other remote sensing tools, to evaluate important spatial orientation data, demonstrate changes in a site over time, and provide enhanced context that helps stakeholders make informed decisions.

GIS is one of several powerful analytical tools used to characterize and study spatial relationships through data layering. This tool provides important insights regarding soil chemistry, ecological relationships, site geology, historical land use, time-series data, and trend analysis.

Exponent's multidisciplinary teams of engineers, chemists, geologists, toxicologists, and biologists work with outputs from mathematical and statistical models to assist with trend and forensic analysis and to offer insights into problem causation and possible solutions. These tools provide visual data evaluations critical to the success of any spatial assessment and are particularly useful in providing scientific evidence in investigations involving geological and ecological disputes.
