Data analysis

Data analysis, statistics and experimental design

ADAS provides a range of digital data management options to suit the complexity and nature of the data and the needs of our clients. Our understanding of the data enables us to perform robust analyses and manipulations using statistical software and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

Whether collected by our field staff or sourced from third-parties, full value can only be gained from data when it is appropriately managed, analysed and presented. It is important to understand the science behind the data, the purpose of its collection, and the intended end-user.

Our consultants have extensive knowledge of sourcing, collating, and integrating digital datasets for dissemination, analysis and modelling for government and corporate clients. This includes a detailed understanding of the data that are available in terms of applicability, precision and uncertainty. We also have a full appreciation of the various needs of our clients in terms of data access and interpretation.

We utilise the full suite of ESRI GIS software on PC platforms and are part of the ESRI Developer Network. We also operate within the open-source environment to make our GIS solutions even more cost-effective.
