Geospatial Analytics

Lynker Intel’s smart maps pinpoint areas of potential risk, reveal deeper insights on how to manage risk, and provide a common view that streamlines communication during all phases of risk assessment and management. We can help you prioritize where to allocate resources with data-driven risk assessment and by using our predictive analytics to reveal patterns and trends. Lynker scientists use spatial analysis, data science, and location as the connective thread to uncover hidden patterns and trends for enhanced risk assessment. Our competitive edge comes from our ability to integrate location into Lynker Analytics machine learning models applied to big data and Internet of Things (IoT) technology to make quick, informed decisions based on the most up-to-date information.

Lynker Intel develops actionable spatial intelligence for decision makers – uncertainties are clearly communicated and valued, and we develop the customized tools needed to support decision-making under uncertainty. The use of platforms and online tools can provide accessible, credible and transparent information on past and future climate behavior. Lynker Intel can work with clients to ensure that our actionable intelligence is complemented with the development of the technical and institutional capacity to manage climate-related and other risks.

Lynker Intel tools for mainstreaming adaptation in critical policy areas and encouraging investments in resilient infrastructure include:

  • Spatial representations of natural hazards and risk, including multi-hazard and risk assessment GIS;
  • Spatial planning frameworks to better inform maximum probable loss (MPL) models to compute insurance premiums and to redirect development away from high-risk areas;
  • infrastructure project and policy appraisals, including Strategic Environmental Assessment and Environmental Impact Assessment; and
  • regulatory and economic standards (such as building codes).

Planning and Designing for Resilient and Green Infrastructure

Infrastructure and its networks will be affected by the physical impacts of climate variability and change but will also play an essential role in building resilience to those impacts. Lynker Intel can help you prioritize, plan, and design new or retrofit old infrastructure in a more thoughtful environmentally aligned (green) manner that can account for the climate and other changes that may occur over its lifetime.

Climate Change and Population Growth

With decades of deep experience in natural hazards analyses and risk assessment, Lynker Intel partners with private and public organizations to operationalize climate change impact analytics, projections of population growth and subsequent increases in vulnerable assets, as well as other changes influencing hazard and risk exposure, in order to make better business and adaptation decisions for the future impacts of hazards. Decisions that must be made now.

Geohydrology and Groundwater Resource Sustainability

Hidden from view, groundwater provides a critical water supply resource to billions of people across the globe, while simultaneously providing a foundation to healthy ecosystems. Lynker Intel geohydrology professionals have the knowledge and experience to help clients manage their groundwater resource challenges.

Mine Water Management

Considering progressively more stringent regulations, high profile tailings dam disasters, declining ore grades and mine closure activities, sound water management strategies and models are paramount for successful and safe mining. Lynker Intel excels at assessing all phases and functions of mine water resources including the development of water-balance and groundwater flow-and-transport models to support the efficient management of water at a viable price. We understand that the availability, quality, and cost of water are key to investment decisions, and cost-effective water management is critical to profitability.

Site Assessment, Remediation, and Closure

Land, soil and groundwater impacted by accidental spills and releases of chemicals and wastes can present unacceptable risks to human health and the environment. Mitigation of exposure to impacts begins with a sound understanding of the sciences that define their 5 fate and transport. Lynker Intel approaches site assessments, feasibility studies, and remediation of impacted soil and groundwater considering the science and using the wide variety of means and methods in our toolbox.
