We research, organize, and evaluate the data you need to build a strong case.

Our experts can help manage, interpret, and present the large amount of data you have collected.

We specialize in turning data into information and then into action. We bring together the three critical skill sets needed to apply knowledge and data management: the ability to understand and build mathematical models, the applied engineering and scientific skills to understand the significance of data, and the experience to find insights and build and communicate a coherent narrative from the data. Services include:

  • Information Management
  • Research Services
  • Public Outreach
  • Decision Consequence Analysis
  • Statistics and Geostatistics
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • 3D Modeling

Case Study

CHALLENGE

A client is sued for contamination resulting from past operations at a site.

THE APPROACH

Our first step is to compile all the client’s data/reports/documents related to the issue and catalog them in Intradox, our custom online document management system. We will conduct literature searches and other research (such as filing Freedom of Information Act [FOIA] requests) to identify the universe of relevant and useful documents/data, including those the client may not have been aware existed.

The next step is organizing the data into a database for spatial analysis within a GIS application. Subsequent steps may include statistics/geostatistical analysis of the data or development of a custom web application to manage data/documents and allow clients and stakeholders (if appropriate) to access the information. The final step is communicating the information to the client and stakeholders using appropriate visualization tools that will help the viewer understand the findings.

The NewFields Difference

We take a customized and creative approach to every project using a wide variety of tools to help meet the needs of our clients.

Our extensive experience in finding, managing and presenting all aspects of information relevant to a case, from historical maps to relational databases, help us identify key information and put it at our clients’ fingertips. This approach to information management distills what can seem like an overwhelming amount of data, documents, and technical analyses into a clear, easy-to-understand narrative.
