Alta recognizes that planning and design are a blend of art and science. Conceptual community designs must be grounded in an objective framework and strategic considerations. We combine practical experience, knowledge of accepted guidelines, and close connections to the research community to deliver analyses that inform and support our clients’ projects.
GIS, Modeling, Data Collection, and Data Visualizations allow us to investigate what’s happening on the ground and forecast impacts resulting from changes in infrastructure. We distill a variety of national and local data sets into stories that help make decisions easier for policy makers. We also craft rigorous evaluation projects that draw from our academic qualifications, leadership of the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation project, and passion for understanding the difference multi-modal transportation projects make in improving quality of life and transportation options.
