In 2016 Royal HaskoningDHV took the initiative (with support of the Dutch Ministry) to conduct a pilot project to create the first digital interactive Environmental Impact Statement. Now, more than four years later, a variety of project examples are available that have started to apply a digital form of reporting.
This webinar highlights the latest achievements and innovations in digital impact assessment reporting, reviewing and communication. Paul and Tom will briefly share with you the reason to start working with digital and interactive EIA, as well as show some examples and highlight the power and importance of visuals in digital reports. At the end of the webinar, they will give a preview of the backend of a system to create digital reports and show how easy it is to create and customize your own reports. The webinar will focus on the possibilities and application of digital EIA in practice today.
