Geographic tools for consultancy

Peter Brett Associates has invested in a package of geographic analysis and digital mapping products from MapMechanics, the specialist systems house in mobile management, scheduling and geographic information systems and data.

A range of products have been supplied by MapMechanics, including GeoConcept, the GIS and mapping application; NAVTEQ digital map data; and ITIS road speed data, which attaches real-world road speeds to individual sections of road, separated into different times of day.

PBA offers a range of transport consultancy services. Clients range from commercial businesses to planning authorities, highway authorities, transport providers and national and regional ecological and heritage organisations.

The work often involves studies into the accessibility of existing or proposed developments, or finding the optimal location for new facilities.
