Too much information? Use Envirocheck's new large site analysis to get the answers you need to build compelling reports for your clients

When it comes to enabling environmental consultants to review information from multiple sources, both quickly and accurately, Landmark’s unique Envirocheck Analysis viewer has led the way.  Envirocheck Analysis has radically altered workflows, providing powerful tools for reviewing, analysing, targeting and capturing key information for inclusion within final reports and presentations.  

Envirocheck Analysis is now available for use on larger sites up to 100 hectares in size.  

We have launched a new user case study series to showcase the unparalleled ease, accuracy and efficiency gains environmental consultants can enjoy when using Envirocheck Analysis.

This series will use common projects as scenarios to illustrate how environmental consultants can get the most out of Envirocheck Analysis for all their phase 1 desk studies.

In this scenario, an environmental consultant is using Envirocheck Analysis to investigate and present data on a site near a historic landfill, using the snapshot tool.

 

It’s great having all these additional historical site maps available for review but the flip-side is that it does create more work, along with the risk that important details might be missed.

In the past, it was easy to review paper maps using a lightbox. Even holding them up against a window in the office was highly effective, so long as it was lighter outside than inside!   


Times have changed and now the reports that consultants receive are in digital format. They’ve had to devise new ways of reviewing historical mapping, along with the accompanying data contained in the report.   

With the launch of Envirocheck Analysis, consultants are once again able to view historical mapping, one on top of the other, as well as overlaying historical mapping with the very latest high resolution aerial imagery. Each individual layer of mapping in the report has its own opacity control, making it easy to compare and contrast old with new.    

The ability to see detail as to the maximum extents of the quarry as it was mapped by the Ordnance Survey back in the 1960s, overlaid by an image of the site as it can be seen today, used to only be possible on the very largest projects, where the client had budget and resource for the data to be set up in GIS. Envirocheck Analysis now gives the consultant this facility on every site they look at.     

Nothing can match it for enabling them to fully piece together the history of the site and to see the information provided in the best light. That line of scarring evident in the current aerial photograph looks like it could just be a footpath. However, seeing how the shape of it falls around the mapped extents of the quarry in the historical map leads them to believe that the quarry might have been larger than records suggest.   

Given the plans for developing this site, they can’t take the risk of ignoring this and shall investigate further. Just making this observation alone has already potentially saved them from discovering this fact further down the line, at considerable inconvenience, expense and not to mention embarrassment.   

With the inclusion of environmental datasets, the ability to overlay information in Envirocheck Analysis enables consultants to review current possible sources of contamination from the statutory records. The ability also to view sensitivity and hydrogeological information means pathways and receptors are easily identified, aiding their understanding of both site and surrounding area, and forming the basis of a conceptual site model.
