Augmented reality and EIA

This webinar is part of a series exploring how professionals involved in Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) have adapted their ways of working to the 'new normal' arising from the pandemic.

In this webinar Cameron and Amanda share how Ramboll use augmented reality in impact assessment projects to enable rapid desk assessments, support public consultation and improve insight in the field. During the pandemic this technology has enabled the team to visualise the project in-situ, without leaving home. As teams return to field work they have used the tool to verify views from potential viewpoints and minimise time on site. Their project examples include wind farms, transmission lines and building developments.
