Interactive mapping transforms ecology management

TIM (Thomson Interactive Mapping) - our state of the art geospatial technology connects our field ecologists out on site with our clients in their office and with our project managers at base. Our contract with Thomson Habitats to undertake vegetation clearance of the mothballed section of the East West Rail route has hugely benefitted from using TIM.


Regulatory assessments for licensing marine works: less is more

Assessing the environmental impacts of marine works is challenging, due to the many combinations of effects and impacts that can potentially affect multiple marine species, populations, habitats and nature conservation areas.
