The centralization and management of environmental data is crucial for sharing information about a project, region, or event. The spatial scale may be local or global. The content may exist in many forms, including physical documents, laboratory data, asset locations, or modeling results. The information may be highly dynamic, as with real-time data feeds, or relatively static, such as historical information. The data may be intended for foundational planning, required for guiding procedures and work flows, assisting with decisions, or displaying results.
CSA understands the collection, processing, analysis, interpretation, and management of large environmental data sets involving nearshore, offshore, and deepwater marine settings over a range of spatial and temporal scales. We also understand our clients’ needs to communicate information within secure, private groups, as well as with a broader audience of regulators, the public, and the media.
Whatever the type, purpose, source, volume, or location, CSA’s Environmental Data and Geospatial Services (EDGS) provide solutions for centralizing, accessing, visualizing, and sharing environmental data and information as consumable web-based map services. These services provide a foundation for secure communication and knowledge transfer throughout the life span of a project or development, whether nearby in the Gulf of Mexico or anywhere on Earth.
CSA offers four primary EDGS applications that help our clients make timely and well-informed decisions. These include:
- EDGSonline – A secure data collection, analysis, and visualization platform that integrates static and dynamic data from multiple sources and serves as a Common Operating Picture. CSA uses EDGSonline in environmental impact assessment, oil spill planning, stakeholder engagement, and incident response
- FMVsea – A suite of tools and services CSA offers to support post-processing, viewing, and analysis of Full Motion Video (FMV) compliant imagery.
- seaApps – Mobile, web, and desktop applications to collect, process, report, and manage environmental data.
- seaData – Services to enable the discovery, integration, quality assurance, and curation of data. CSA will demonstrate the use of data to convey environmental baseline conditions, identify resources at risk, process and display real-time feeds, and leverage publicly available information on the web – all crucial elements of spill planning and response.
