GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS (GIS)
The LA Groupís staff of GIS professionals has extensive experience in geographic data analysis, data development, map production, Visual Impact Assessments, as well as Need Assessment implementation. The LA Group has long recognized the value of this tool for planners and decision makers in all levels of government and private enterprise.
Visual Impact Assessment is an integral component of many Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) conducted by The LA Group. Typically a visual impact assessment follows a detailed methodology using techniques that are based on best practice guidance for a systematic approach to the assessment.
Our system is operated by professionals who also have backgrounds in landscape architecture, planning and environmental studies. This ensures that client needs are fully understood and solutions are meaningful and useful, not just a quick technical fix. The interdisciplinary nature of The LA Group, combined with these powerful and flexible tools, allows us to take on a diverse range of planning and design problems, and develop creative solutions to meet specific client needs.
