SLR’s GIS services can help clients turn data into high quality visual representations of spatial information. These enable our clients to make better informed decisions and easily communicate concepts to regulators, professionals and laymen alike.

GIS (Geographical Information Systems/Science) is a computer-based system that is used widely amongst our clients as a way to capture, store, display and analyse data that has a geospatial reference. This allows us to visualise patterns, trends and relationships in the form of distinctive maps.

How can we help?

GIS gives us the ability to map, model, query and analyse large quantities of data stored both outside of and within a relational database according to its geographical location. We can then assign a series of attributes to each spatial feature. This data is held within GIS as a collection of layers that can be linked together by a common location component, such as coordinates, postcodes, census output areas, government boundaries, etc. These layers can contain a variety of different types of data such as transportation networks, site infrastructure, economic activity, hydrology, ecology, population etc.

Through geospatial visualisation, our clients make better informed decisions, enhance internal and stakeholder communication, fulfil statutory requirements, and manage resources and assets more efficiently. Our drawings and output comply with our corporate image and are in accordance with our accredited quality assurance.
