Aquatera’s in-house Resource Analysis and Digital Mapping Application (RADMApp) tool provides a GIS based framework for data analysis which is used as a powerful site selection tool for projects all over the world in many different types of projects and industries.

Aquatera’s RADMApp tool is a raster-based GIS framework for data analysis which can be applied to many different scenarios. The tool helps to establish a robust framework by seeking to identify the key decision factors and types of data that need to be considered during site selection; from planning zones and conservation designations, to available wind, tide and sun resource, or social, cutural and economic activity data. It provides a universal and comparable system for classifying the levels of suitability for each criteria, so each one can be scored and weighed and suitable site options identified.

RADMApp is capable of handling 500 million pixels of data in each input and output layer as well as in the associated interactions, aids the decision-making process for Spatial Planning through resource assessment and identification of potential development zones. This model provides a holistic assessment and mapping of the physical environment through a universally comparable system for assessing suitability based on a range of criteria. The tool can easily interface with, handle data from, and generate data to be used by other geographical data tools and presentational frameworks. RADMApp assesses flexible, sensitive and insightful frameworks associated with the interactions that come from activities, decisions, technology and facilities as well as established ecosystem, social and economic relationships. 

Aquatera’s RADMApp model has been successfully implemented into a wide range of studies in relation to resource and market assessments at local, national and global scales, resource assessments for renewables such as solar,tidal, thermal and wave energy, as well as other renewable energy related projects.
