HOLISTIC INTERACTIVE VISUALIZATION ENVIRONMENT
A new geospatial planning platform that enriches decision-making and facilitates more inclusive and equitable terrestrial and marine management.
Support the up-front understanding of the situation or decision, and summarize the projected impacts of potential changes.
Identify potential conflicts and win-win approaches, and understand likely implications of decisions.
Manage trade-offs before investing, build consensus and find opportunities for collaboration.
Visualize the current situation and a range of likely and potential futures based on change and impact models.
HIVE can be applied to issues in many domains.
Watch a brief introduction with a marine example.
In a survey of potential HIVE users, we found that more than half of respondents are lacking information about stakeholders and the things they value.
Understand your decision landscape or seascape by documenting the stakeholders, their values, the relevant regulations, datasets, models, and change drivers, and graphically visualizing the relationships among them.
We are a diverse team with 50+ years of experience in software development, geographic information systems, natural resource management and conservation, decision support, and environmental consulting.

We are currently focusing on requirements for the spatial features of HIVE, including summary tables and graphs linked to baseline and projection maps, and the differences between them.
