Putting data at your fingertips.
A well-built database makes for better data analysis and presentation – helping you to see the bigger picture.
We customise databases to your particular project requirements. We usually use Access, integrated with GIS to analyse data in the most appropriate format – either through the database itself or accessed via GIS. We also develop online databases for collating, searching and presenting data; our South Pennines Wind Energy Database (SPWED) being a recent SQLite example.
Our databases often underpin work such as site audits. Our GIS-enabled tablets allow field surveyors to enter detailed survey data on-site, saving time back at the office.
Data presentation matters, so for work such as sustainability appraisals, green belt reviews, green infrastructure audits or open space audits, our custom-built databases can integrate GPS-linked photos and site maps, creating attractive and concise proforma reports. It’s this skill set that means some National Trust Estates now have a digital gazetteer for every historic and archaeological asset.
We can turn your spreadsheets into a more functional and robust database so you get more out of your data.
