The Geospatial Analysis for Optimization at Environmental Sites document provides information about using geospatial methods in all project life cycle stages: release detection, site characterization, remediation, monitoring and closure. The document provides a needed resource to state regulators, practitioners and stakeholders about using geospatial analysis to support decisions on optimization.
The Geospatial Analysis for Optimization at Environmental Sites (GRO-1) web-based guidance is designed to help practitioners better apply geospatial analyses in environmental projects. This guidance will help state regulators and other practitioners to understand, evaluate, and make informed decisions about geospatial analyses for optimizing activities at environmental sites. The material presented provides not only highly technical detail, but also introductory information for those who may not have expertise in this area. The document applies to all project life cycle stages: release detection, site characterization, remediation, monitoring and closure. The GRO-1 web-based technical and regulatory guidance document brings clarity to the planning, implementation, and communication of geospatial analysis in support of optimization. The GRO-1 document is a companion document to Groundwater Statistics and Monitoring Compliance (GSMC-1).
The GRO-1 document is formatted as a website. You can access the web document at any time from the ITRC website or you can bookmark the link. The fact sheets and review checklist are downloadable in a printable format (PDF). The software tables are in a downloadable Excel file.
