Data Analytics & Visualization

Seeing is believing

What is big data? Primarily generated from internet-connected devices, big data has a large volume, real time velocity, structured and unstructured variety, and high veracity. The business environment and market economies generate big data from machines (sensors), transactions, and social engagement.

Unlocking the value of big data for our clients and our company means processing it with advanced tools (analytics and algorithms) to reveal meaningful information. Stantec significantly invested in digital transformation so we could be an industry leader in machine learning, predictive analytics, cloud migration, processing, and data visualization.

Our teams specialize in using data derived from sensors, live camera feeds, apps, mobile devices, satellites, and much more. We pair visualization outputs with data governance to generate transparent, data-driven outcomes in the environmental, engineering, infrastructure, planning, and design realms. The goal? Achieving healthy, resilient, and equitable communities.

Real-time actionable insights sound pretty good to us—and seeing is believing. We invite you to reach out and let us show you what we can do with big data.
