Plan Production, Thematic cartography and specific studies involving spatial analysis

We have the technology, knowledge and experience that allows us to model spatial phenomena based on robust scientific methods, solving specific problems with financial and/or operational returns.

CWith state-of-the-art spatial and statistical modelling techniques over GIS technology, we develop studies and simulations of phenomena based on territorial variables assumptions, such as past and present land use, mobility and accessibility, social and economic variables, environmental variables, risks and disasters, and strategical and political option.

MUNICIPAL EMERGENCY AND CIVIL PROTECTION PLANS

PURPOSE

We create and implement Municipal Emergency and Civil Protection Plans according to CNPC resolution no. 30/2015 using the most recent technologies, making the plan available in a GIS environment on the internet for faster and global access. Planning provides a relationship of agreement that must be shared between individuals and organizations, both in the coordination of their inherent demands and in the articulation of their response actions during emergency operations.

ADVANTAGES

  • Modern technology;
  • Preparation in GIS environment;
  • Online availability;
  • Fast and global access;
  • Faster analysis of hazards and vulnerabilities;
  • Deciding on the most suitable handling strategies.
RISK CARTOGRAPHY

PURPOSE

As aerial surveys became more and more popular, whether by LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology or by large-format and high resolution Aerial Images, data collection to prepare risk maps became faster, since these technologies enable altimetric precision and a result high measurement volume (DTM and DSM).

This possibility, together with a team that grows in multiple skills depending on the risk to map, allows us to study various risks that affect a certain territory and to map them as follows:

ADVANTAGES

  • Very short collection times;
  • If needed, simulation programs can perform analyses of the whole vulnerable surface without being limited to a set of sections.

VEGETATION INDEX AND PHYSIOGRAPHY REPRESENTATION MAPS

PURPOSE

We perform aerial photography flights using a large-format, high-precision aerial camera with 4 channels (RGB+IR), geo-referencing and orthorectifying images, and ensuring the accurate delivery of vegetation indexes and physiographic maps showing hypsometry, slopes, slope orientation and solar radiation.

Applying remote sensing techniques to aerial photographs of crops allows us to map to you the condition of plantations at high resolutions and to give farmers the unique possibility of taking actions regarding harvesting and management of vineyards, olives, fruit and other annual crops.

ADVANTAGES

  • Harvest Segmentation (+Quality = +Revenue);
  • Irrigation management (water savings);
  • Planting failures location;
  • Drainage;
  • Variable application of fertilizers and phytosanitary products.
Mapping the Apparent Electrical Conductivity of the Soil

PURPOSE

The most effective way to evaluate the variability in a parcel is through the mapping of its apparent electrical conductivity (CEA). The land survey is performed through a specific sensor without direct contact with the soil, preserving its characteristics, and in a georeferenced way, obtaining measurements up to 1 m deep.

AThis assessment gives you a number of plot information, from the variation in the soil texture to the identification of problematic zones, which allow the farmer to define specific management strategies in a precise and differentiated manner.

ADVANTAGES

  • Support the decision of new culture installation;
  • Implementation of the irrigation system, notably in the delimitation of the sectors;
  • Soil and fertilization corrections;
  • Choice of varieties and their location;
  • Identification of critical areas for sampling or definition of monitoring locations;
  • Production of comparison maps such as expected/obtained productivity;
  • Relevant information for differentiated irrigation calculations (VRI pivot / irrigation sectors).
SOLAR POTENTIAL MAPPING

PURPOSE

We have built a public interest tool to support consumers upon deciding whether to install solar panels on their rooftops and to make the population aware of the buildings’ potential as sources of revenue or energy savings.

METHODOLOGY

This study’s production depends on obtaining a Digital Surface Model (DSM) of great cartographic accuracy following a spatial analysis, in an environment that incorporates Geographical Information.

ADVANTAGES

  • Actions and Goals of the Covenant of Mayors and 20 20 20 Strategy;
  • Supporting goals related to Energy Efficiency;
  • Fast and thorough performance;
  • Reusing previously available information.

LAND USE SCENARIOS

PURPOSE

Using state-of-the-art spatial and statistical modelling techniques over GIS technology, we develop land use scenarios based on territorial variables assumptions, such as past and present land use, mobility and accessibility, social and economic variables, environmental variables and strategical and political options.

ADVANTAGES

Modelling scenarios enables:

  • Accounting for the evolution of each type of land use, both cartographically and statistically;
  • Providing the decision maker with the location and statistical information of the most popular categories;
  • Inferring the territory’s places with higher conflict rates and higher potential.
