Environmental Sensitivity Mapping Services
Sensitivity mapping is essential to the oil spill contingency planning process as the modelling results can predict and indicate sensitive areas and resources that are likely to be impacted in the critical period. Through our own in-house expertise and tools, we can assist in developing and producing GIS-based maps. These maps illustrate the environmental and socio-economic data for locations ranging in scale from an entire country's coastline to a small local area in the vicinity of an oil-handling facility.
The benefits include:
- Clear graphical display of sensitive resources
- GIS layers can be supplied with fully compatible viewing software
- Response strategy prioritisation
- Support in the preparation of integrated spill contingency plans
