Spatial Data Management

habitat INFO take the management of spatial data seriously.  Working on projects referencing in excess of 200 datasets requires systematic organisation, particularly when multiple members of the team are involved.  That’s why we’ve developed practices to help us catalog and locate the data we use regularly.  We use ArcCatalog to manage our spatial data and ensure metadata is kept up-to-date. We’ve worked on large projects requiring the development of data […]

Web Mapping

Web Mapping

GIS has taken big steps forward in recent years and firmly positioned itself on the internet. Today, the public make use of online GIS systems almost daily be it through services providing directions from A to B, to take a look at their neighbourhood from Space or to find a nearby business. Similarly businesses use web-based GIS today more than ever to share spatial data internally and externally. habitat INFO […]

Environmental Risk & Vulnerability Assessment

Environmental Risk & Vulnerability Assessment

The objective of our risk and vulnerability analysis is to identify where people may be expected to be most vulnerable to all of the major expected difficulties associated with climate change, notably food security, water shortages, disasters and associated health problems. Our aim is to develop a composite index of vulnerability.  This is done by combining the influence of different data layers into one final summary layer (hotspots).  The advantage […]

Biodiversity Assessment

Biodiversity Assessment

habitat INFO have a proven record when it comes to delivering Biodiversity layers having supplied them to Local Planning Authorities throughout Wales. We supply a single GIS layer into which all known biodiversity layers (species, habitats, sites and connectivity) have been incorporated. Areas of high biodiversity value are coloured red, and areas where little is known about the biodiversity value are coloured blue. It means that members of the Forward […]

Species Distribution Modelling

Species Distribution Modelling

Local Records Centres rely on the efforts of recorders working in the field to send them biological records. However, records can only exist in areas recorders themselves have visited, regardless of the presence of species or not. This patchiness is a problem for LRCs because records of important species may be absent from large areas simply because recorders have not visited those places. Distribution modelling offers LRCs a way round […]

It can lead to the development of large spatial databases very quickly with data that can be used going forward for further analysis. habitat INFO has a wealth of experience in developing mobile GIS solutions for […]

3D Analysis

3D Analysis

habitat INFO’s 3D services include the analysis of terrain in order to identify areas which are visible from defined observation points. This is particularly useful during the planning of developments near to pre-existing developments. We are also able to provide 3D scenes, animations and analysis to stakeholders and decision makers allowing them to make far more informed decisions. Projects to date include: Visual impact assessment for a wind turbine in […]
