Across a host of industries, organizations are grappling with understanding and communicating their data. Landscape Metrics helps them meet this challenge by designing and building customized, interactive data visualizations, maps, and data stories. By transforming information into beautiful, engaging visual narratives, our services help our clients discover insights in their data and communicate these insights to the public.
Collaborations led by Landscape Metrics have won major competitions, including:
Landscape Metrics has been featured in publications including The Architect's Newspaper, The Atlantic's CityLab, Landscape Architecture Magazine, The Nature of Cities, and the Huffington Post.
We work closely with clients to unlock the value of their data. Far from simply presenting data on maps, we build custom data visualization interfaces from the ground up that present entirely original perspectives on complex datasets. Employing the web browser as our core platform, we explore data through a host of techniques, from linking charts with maps to animating data over time and space. Through this bottom-up approach, we create unique visualizations that can reveal new insights and engage audiences.
Landscape Metrics was originally conceptualized by Benjamin Wellington, Matthew Seibert, and Eric Roy, while working as graduate researchers in the LSU Coastal Sustainability Studio, a multidisciplinary think-tank oriented around coastal environmental issues.
Officially formed in 2015, Landscape Metrics is still informed by its multidisciplinary roots, drawing from its team members’ diverse backgrounds in geographic information systems, graphic design, web development, and landscape architecture.
