What is GIS?

Geographic Information System (GIS) is a technology that enables the collection, archiving, analysis and presentation of spatial information about the specific locations of the Earth’s surface. It combines maps and data to give users a better understanding of various phenomena, patterns, and relationships based on location. Fundamentally, GIS enables us to understand spatial data and make judgments about our environment.

Why is GIS used?

GIS is a powerful tool that helps users to understand, analyse, and visualize data in a spatial context, which has broad applications across various fields and industries. Ultimately enhancing decision-making by identifying spatial patterns and relationships in various sectors.


How is GIS used in the Offshore Wind industry?

GIS facilitates site selection and planning for offshore projects by providing detailed spatial data on elements including proximity to existing infrastructure, ocean currents, and seabed topography. As a result, risks are reduced and resource allocation is optimized in the offshore industry. By enabling real-time asset and environmental condition monitoring, GIS also improves operational effectiveness. This data-driven methodology enables preventive maintenance, lowering operational expenses and minimising environmental impact and enhancing transparency.

How the 4C subscription can benefit you?

  • Our GIS data allows users to integrate it with various types of spatial data, such as bathymetric data, seabed characteristics, marine boundaries, and more. This integrated data can provide a comprehensive view of the offshore environment, helping in decision-making processes can assist in selecting optimal locations for offshore activities and helps identify suitable sites that minimize risks and costs.
  • Predictive Analysis and Forecasting: GIS data can help you anticipate future conditions and energy outputs of wind farms and other offshore renewable assets such as turbines.
  • Thousands of datapoints from over 3,100 offshore wind projects worldwide, backed by experts and updated regularly.

A Growing Market

The offshore wind farm sector has grown significantly in recent years, driven by advances in technology, government policies, and declining costs.

Global offshore wind capacity reached 29.1 GW in 2019, up from just 3.5 GW in 2010 and in Europe, offshore wind power capacity is expected to reach 450 GW by 2050, with major growth expected in markets such as the UK, Germany and the Netherlands.

Mapping and geographic information systems (GIS) are important aspects of the sector and, as such, play an essential role for developers, researchers and consultants involved in offshore, guiding decisions from site selection to asset management.

Imagine what you could do for your organisation with access to comprehensive geographic information system (GIS) data and mapping.
