Spatial analytics and insights

Spatial data underpins much of the insight we provide. Whether it’s helping our clients understand commuter patterns, travel times across a study area or combining data together to create unique insights our team of GIS and data analysts have access to the latest data and analytical techniques to find the truth behind the data.

Our team build bespoke multi-modal transport models to help assess new public transport infrastructure. We assess underlying demand for new transport services by analysing population and demographic characteristics including our Smarter TravelStyle segmentation product. We have developed unique tools to calculate rail station catchments and understand the underlying cycling potential of an area.  

Spatial analysis and insights have been at the core of our business for nearly two decades. Our experts are embedded into project teams from the start to help steer and advise analytical needs. Key to our analysis is the importance we put on the outputs of our work — with that in mind our team of analysts work closely with our cartography and design team to ensure deliverables are suitable to the audience.
