Costain Limited

GIS Routing and Proximity Advisory Services

We help customers understand locations based upon routing and proximity of assets. We help customers optimise routes to lower emissions and save carbon. We geospatially analyse proximity relationships, including how close is one facility to another, distance between two points of interest, nearest facility from location.

Features

  • Create catchment areas around a Point of Interest
  • Calculate areas that can be reached within specified travel time/distances
  • Helping customers with enhanced geospatial visualisation
  • Providing geospatial workflow automation support
  • Helping customers understand hot-spots and clusters, run predictive analysis
  • Providing web-based multimodal routing (drive and pedestrian)

Benefits

  • Helping customers reduce carbon emissions based on location data
  • Helping customers reduce fuel consumption through location data
  • Helping customers optimise driving times for operatives or activies
  • Providing customers with better reporting mechanisms through GIS-based analysis
  • Improved collaboration across all disciplines

How the planning service works
Providing web-based multimodal routing (drive and pedestrian) and proximity solutions, accessible via a browser.

Optimize routes and generate turn-by-turn directions, react to real-time traffic conditions, route multiple vehicles to multiple destinations, and increase the overall efficiency of your daily workflows. Models the movement of cars and other similar small automobiles, such as pickup trucks, and finds solutions that optimise travel time. Follows paths and roads that allow pedestrian traffic and finds solutions that optimise travel time. Model basic truck travel by preferring designated truck routes and find solutions that optimise travel time. Results obey vehicle-specific rules. When you specify a start time, dynamic travel speeds based on traffic are used where it is available, up to the legal truck speed limit.

Geospatial analytical methods used to discover proximity relationships, including how close is one facility to another, distance between two points of interest, nearest facility from location and many more.
• Create catchment areas around a Point of Interest, using multiple distance radii
• Calculate areas that can be reached within specified travel times or distance along a street network based on travel mode.
• Summarise/aggregate datasets, join features based on common attributes, reveal hot-spots and clusters, run predictive analysis.

How the quality assurance and performance testing works
We understand the significance of Geospatial data quality and processes, so we work with you to understand, document and implement routines for ensuring it is fit for purpose, supported by your system configuration and appropriate to help you make good decisions to save time and cost. We use these processes to prevent errors from being introduced and to identify errors already in it, via examining positional accuracy, completeness, temporal quality, thematic accuracy, logical consistency and usability.
