Gis Mapping & Visualisations Service
A picture says a thousand words. We use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to describe our world in terms of its spatial relationships, patterns and trends. This applies as much to our social and built environment as it does to the natural environment for which GIS was first developed. The most common GIS product is a map, but using layers of information, GIS can also be used for strategic assessments, identifying priorities and needs within an area, helping decision-makers and focussing investment. Maps are also a vital visual aid in community and stakeholder engagement.
TEP has a large mapping and GIS team which uses ArcGIS and MapInfo software to analyse and illustrate environmental, social and economic data and trends. It is a powerful tool in our design and assessment services, for example: in landscape and visual impact assessment, we use Spatial and 3D analysis techniques to assess the impact of overhead transmission lines, wind farms and large building proposals; in our urban design work, our Walk-Zone maps help us to assess the accessibility and quantity of neighbourhood open spaces.
Our clients include central and local government, large corporate landowners such as Forestry Commission and HCA; and infrastructure providers like National Grid.
