WM Symposia 2018 provided an excellent showcase for Locus GIS+ in LANL’s Intellus website

The annual Waste Management (WM) Conference, presented by WM Symposia (WMS), attracts thousands of registrants from around the world and is widely regarded as the premier international conference for the management of radioactive material and related topics. If you are an influencer in the industry, then WM Symposia is where you need to be.

Environmental data is often complex, and it can be difficult to provide proper context to fully understand and comprehensively analyze the data. One tool identified to better present complicated data is the use of web-based Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Web-based GIS provides much-needed visual context to the complex data collected at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). By overlaying environmental data atop relevant geographical features, such as topography, surface or subsurface geology, hydrogeological features, buildings, roads, and technical areas, LANL’s diverse group of stakeholders are better able to understand environmental data collected at the LANL site within the framework of the surrounding geography.

At this year’s WM Conference at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona, Locus is co-presenting a paper with our customer Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Paper focuses on the use of Locus’ GIS+ capabilities in the Intellus website to bring greater understanding to stakeholders. Locus’ Sean Sandborgh and Todd Pierce are co-authors.
