How the DMP Platform Helps Streamline Project Planning for Psomas June 7, 2019 Location Data, Success Story By: Jason Holte Share: TwitterFacebookLinkedInEmail Psomas relies on LandVision™ to deliver consistent, accurate location data and ensure seamless workflows during project planning. Gathering location data to inform project planning was a time-consuming process for Psomas. Project teams used multiple data sources in their research, which often produced inaccurate or outdated information. The company needed a single source of consistent, accurate location information, and their search led Psomas to our map-based real estate application, LandVision. About Psomas Psomas is an engineering consulting firm that operates in the western United States. One of the top engineering firms in the nation, Psomas serves public and private sector clients in the transportation, water, site development, and energy markets. We spoke to Michael Deseo, a GIS analyst in the environmental division, to learn more about why his group relies on LandVision. Access Detailed Owner Portfolios Instantly LandVision’s map-based research and analysis capabilities help Psomas work efficiently and confidently, using accurate property data. In particular, the ability to quickly establish detailed owner portfolios saves the environmental division valuable time and effort during project planning, research, and outreach. “We use ownership portfolios in LandVision to generate mailers for property owners when we need to notify them of upcoming projects,” Deseo says. “It’s tremendously helpful to me and my team that we can access the information we need within minutes using LandVision.” Streamline Property Research and Project Planning LandVision makes property research and project planning easier for Psomas’ environmental division because it gives the company access to standardized information even across county boundaries. The application’s user-friendly interface makes it a powerful tool for experienced GIS professionals and non-GIS users alike. “LandVision helps us eliminate extra legwork because it is intuitive and easy to use,” Deseo explains. “For example, the built-in measurement tools are very useful. We can overlay flood and wetlands information and then quickly assess the distance from a parcel or project boundary to nearby hazards.” Leverage Current, Continually Updated Data in Project Planning Prior to using LandVision, the environmental division found location-based research to be time-consuming, and they often ended up with data that was not reliable. “It can be hard to find reliable property information publicly, especially if a project spans multiple municipalities,” according to Deseo. Relying on inaccurate or outdated information in the project planning phase can lead to complications during execution. “We can trust the datasets in LandVision. Our teams can access the information they need with a single click rather than having to hunt online or reach out to individual municipalities, and we know the data will be accurate.” Learn More Our thanks to Michael Deseo and the environmental division at Psomas for sharing their customer success story!
