WEST continues to be a leader in developing innovative, creative, and cost-effective approaches for studying environmental resources. We seek cutting-edge opportunities to apply technology in a rapidly changing environment, providing end-users data solutions that are tailored to fit their needs and answer the question at hand. Our approach to technology focuses on practical solutions to the following:
As industry leaders in impact assessment and resource monitoring, WEST’s experts work to identify, evaluate, and implement technological solutions to design and execute state-of-the-art scientific monitoring and survey methods to best meet client’s needs. We have applied technological solutions to natural resource challenges utilizing unmanned aircraft systems, also known as drones, in wildlife studies.
WEST has a unique set of skills applying machine learning and artificial intelligence to clients’ natural resource questions. We have a large staff of statisticians, computer coders, database experts and administrators, and biologists who collectively can design studies and collect necessary data, manage large datasets, and develop machine learning neural networks, as well as application-specific software solutions.
Geographic information systems (GIS) empower users to visualize, question, analyze, store, edit, and share geographic information and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends in relation to positions on Earth’s surface. Our team of GIS experts integrate GIS into our strong foundation of environmental and statistical expertise to produce high-quality, interdisciplinary geospatial products and solutions.
