Where is the best place to build my next property development?  What are the optimal grid connection options?  

Development is a complex undertaking and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) provide vital tools in accurately answering such questions, increasing the understanding of complex project implications and supporting the decision making process.  

Atmos is at the forefront in providing robust GIS solutions that analyse, visualise, interrogate, and interpret data in a reliable manner. We provide our clients with the information and scenario modelling required to determine what is relevant and allow efficient assessment for the benefit of the project.

Our GIS Expertise

Atmos has invested in developing our own, award winning, bespoke GIS data management system, allowing us to combine and analyse data from a wide variety of sources and/or formats to comprehensively investigate relationships and accurately predict outcomes.

We are highly experienced in applying our specialist GIS skills to suit our clients’ unique needs. From site search and visual impact modelling for renewable energy developers, to constraints mapping and visualisations for architects, through to design of interactive decision support tools and scenario modelling for local authorities. Our models are routinely used as evidence in support of planning applications and actively support BIM-enabled working.
