“Data-Up” problem-solving from land, sea, air and space.
There is no one size fits all when it comes to project-based sensor, deployment, and information delivery options. For SWCA, working from the “Data-Up” is a holistic problem-solving approach that begins with listening to client concerns and the science surrounding their projects so pain points and data blind-spots can be identified.
We actively capture and fuse relevant project data in near real time employing a myriad of sensors (payloads/cameras) using robots operating from Land, Sea, Air, and Space. Every project is different, and our data acquisition planners are committed to the development of solutions tailored to your requirements.
SWC.ai, our DigitalGeospatial Visual Intelligence & Data Fusion Platform, leverages a powerful AI/engine driving the rapid rendering of granular actionable intelligence from massive multi-terabyte datasets. SWC.ai is your interactive portal to strategic digital information where you can intuitively view, analyze, annotate, report, share, download, and render critical intelligence in support of key project decisions and reporting.

The Environmental Business Journal (EBJ) recently interviewed SWCA’s Chief Technology Officer Linda Lannen for its Q3 2023 Technology & the Environmental Industry issue. The report is an analysis of technology deployment, investment, spending, service offerings, research and development, and long-term aspirations of companies and executives for the future of the environmental and climate change industries.
Lannen shared insight into how SWCA uses advanced imaging technology, artificial intelligence (AI), large language models like ChatGPT, and other technology to provide clients with high-quality data more quickly so that they can make better decisions that positively impact their business and the planet.
We can all see the huge push for renewable energy right now: utility-scale solar developments, onshore and offshore wind farms, and the need for new generation facilities and transmission lines. All these developments have the potential to change what we see and value in the landscape, which is where visual resources expertise helps to analyze and mitigate visual impacts.

It’s not surprising that drones have made their way into environmental consulting projects. Over the past year, SWCA has seen its list of certified Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) pilots grow from one to nearly a dozen nationwide. Curious how drones have come into play for our industry, we recently took inventory of all the projects that have benefitted from their use.
