TNEI offers comprehensive GIS, CAD and mapping services.
Geographic Information System (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyse, manage, and present all types of geographical data. TNEI use GIS for a variety of projects from transport planning and grid connection route identification to offshore oil and gas asset mapping, renewable energy site finding and production of visualisations.
TNEI has been using GIS to assess renewable energy projects for over 10 years. GIS is one of the leading tools used to identify and assess potential renewable energy sites and is used to help inform site design. GIS offers significant benefits over traditional methods as rapid searches of large areas can be undertaken using datasets that are being continuously updated. Once a suitable site has been found GIS can be used to accurately plot on site constraints to determine suitable turbine locations whilst the team can the use the GIS to determine, using height data for the surrounding area, where each of the turbines will be visible to help inform the landscape and visual assessment.
Further details on the range of wind farm technical assessments TNEI provide can be found here.
TNEI is proficient in the use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) and can fully integrate GIS and CAD datasets to provide comprehensive mapping services. This can used to inform the site design process and produce a range of plans for use in planning applications.
In addition to GIS and CAD TNEI use a variety of other software packages to ensure a flexible approach which enables us to adapt to the needs of our clients.
