Within Atkins Geospatial we provide a range of services covering the full lifecycle of location based information from data acquisition, processing and spatial analysis to information and data management. Our drive is to deliver innovative, quality solutions to our clients to enable them to use data to make well informed decisions in a user friendly and intuitive environment. Our success lies in our integration across the Atkins businesses, collaborative WebGIS working in partnership with the engineering, environmental and design disciplines to ensure well-grounded services, with a deep understanding of both the built and natural environment.

3D visualisation of a new pipeline route and creating viewshed maps for planning applications on small projects to large infrastructure projects
supporting other Atkins work on large multi-disciplinary projects.

Within Atkins Geomatics we collect raw geospatial data using a wide variety of traditional and leading edge surveying and remote sensing technologies including UAVs, LiDAR and photogrammetry. We provide Geomatics services to small, medium and large projects from geodetic control survey, traditional ground survey, LiDAR/Laser Scanning survey (static, mobile and aerial), aerial photogrammetric survey (manned and unmanned) and all aspects of data processing. Our drive is to define innovative solutions in order to provide the highest quality 3D survey and mapping data products to our clients’ requirements. Our success lies in our experience across a wide range of data capture techniques and collaborative approach to defining the most appropriate survey methodology, working in partnership with disciplines from across the Atkins.
