Tired of awkward phone calls and time-consuming site reconfigurations?
Pivvot wants to help you avoid conversations like:
- We can’t start until July because of the nesting season of the desert tortoise and we need a threatened and endangered species expert on site during exploration and development.
- Our steel costs just increased by 30% because we didn’t account for enough embedment due to soft soils.
- Our installation costs just increased by 30% because we have to pre-drill all of the pile locations due to shallow bedrock.
- Our usable area just decreased by 30% because we didn’t realize the site has north facing slopes.
- Our pile thickness needs to increase because we didn’t realize there are highly corrosive soils.
- I didn’t realize half the site was in a floodplain – we’re going to have to increase pile lengths due to scour potential.
We've enhanced our team with the subject matter experts that know how to help you better understand site conditions, and their impacts, earlier than ever before. Rob Hernandez, a geotechnical engineer of 15+ years, will help take your team through how to use data to give the green light on your next site.

If you would like to speak to a Pivvot expert, please fill out the form below!
All right. Well, welcome everyone. We will go ahead and get started. We have a jam-packed schedule
this afternoon, so thank you for joining us. We're excited to have you, before we do jump in, all
attendees have been muted. However, we do have chat and Q&A open. We highly encourage you to
utilize those throughout and the chat will be monitored. We will have some time at the end for some
Q&A. Additionally, we will be recording and we will send out the recording to all registered individuals.
Speaker 2 (04:35):
All right. So here at Pivvot, we like to have a little bit of fun, which means we're constantly walking that fine line between being casual and a little corny. So you may just be witness to the corny today, but
we're embracing it. So come along with our journey. I am Jessica. I grew up within Terracon, which
means that at any point in time, there may have been four or five of my family members that have been
employees at Terracon across the country. I did decide to leave and, and test my, my love of Terracon
for a little while and headed over to a civil aviation engineering firm, where I quickly made my way back
to Terracon and joined their innovation group, where I've been working on Stage1. And we'll get into that in a little bit here for the last four years. Since the beginning of this year, I have added Pivvot to my Terracon story.
Speaker 2 (05:37):
I'm eager to, to jump in and learn more about the technology side and how to help our, our clients get information a lot earlier in their project process. On today's call, our lineup includes some entertainment for you. We have Rob and he's one of Pivvot's favorite perks of now being with Terracon. He's ageotechnical engineer with over 15 years of experience. He grew up in Utah and is a proud graduatewith honors, which is important, from the from Utah University. He joined the Terracon Colorado Springs office in 2006 and he made his way up the ranks there to become the geotechnical departmentmanager there. And in true Rob fashion, he is always growing and eager to add to his skillset. He
received his MBA in 2019. Similar to myself, he joined the Pivvot team in the beginning of the year, and
he is a critical piece of merging the Terracon and Pivvot stories.
Speaker 2 (06:50):
the year, due to the growth and success of Pivvot has taken on the sales and marketing as well as
customer success side of, of Pivvot. So he's been in the consulting and technology world for over 15
years. He's primarily worked with the product management system implementation, and then he is
really great at rolling out that red carpet to make sure that customers are getting the experience that
they expect he's even been known to serenade a customer or two along the way. You can often find him mountain biking or enjoying some concoction of peanut butter and chocolate while listening to the
Speaker 2 (07:48):
Here at Terracon, we do start every meeting with a safety moment. It is extremely important to us to
keep safety top of mind in all that we do. As we're moving into the summer months and the sun is
coming out more and we want to be out there, just make sure that we're keeping in mind how to
protect ourselves. And that is our skin’s wellbeing by staying hydrated and making sure that when we' rewearing sunglasses and eye protection and hats, and that we're not doing any sort of risky outdoor adventures without having a buddy with us. Let’s dive into what, what we'll be talking about today, we've got a, a great lineup for you. The first we'll
just do a general Pivvot introduction. Rob is going to be our trustee tour guide, and while he's kind of
getting ready and adjusting his Fanny pack and getting his tour visor on for you, I will just do a quick
introduction to Pivvot.
Speaker 2 (08:57):
And then he will be taking you through a live demonstration of the Pivvot platform and how to get you
to that green light, even earlier as you're doing site selection for your energy fighting. We're changing things up around here is we want to send you off with some good vibes and give you the gift of Rich'sbeautiful karaoke talent. He'll usher you into the rest of your day with his rendition of simply the best where we get to show you how Pivvot does it better. Some might say better than all the rest. And I get to record some awesome content for our holiday party to share.
Speaker 2 (09:42):
All right. So what is Pivvot? Pivvot is a self-service platform that helps you streamline citing suitability
analysis and per permitting for energy product projects by highlighting where possibility exists and
eliminating sites with fatal flaws even earlier in the project process. So we have a few components to it.
We're mainly going to, to be hitting on the siting component of it for you today. So that is automated
identification of smart part property, parcels, existing infrastructure, and then geological and
environmental data that goes along with that. So you have the ability to search for sites that meets the
criteria that is most important to you and your, your design and project team. And that allows you to fail
those sites a lot faster and identify the sites that you want to give the green light for. We also have a
module within the, the Pivvot platform that is automated interconnect routing.
Speaker 2 (10:50):
In the energy sector, there are several kind of trends that we're seeing and issues that may cause delays in green lights. We will just kind of hit on the top ones today. There's some more, and we're seeing some, some rumbles out there in, in the news, but some of the bigger pieces here that, that we're going to focus on is land ownership with the available parcel sizes that are important to you and your development process, environmental compliance, and permitting. And then some of those unforeseen subsurface geological conditions. And that is where we get really excited to have Rob on our team. So as a geotechnical engineer, he has worked that side of the house. He understands it through and through, and him being able to really show how to use, utilize the Pivvot platform to identify some of those challenges on sites is really, cool. So with, we are going to head over to a demonstration. Rob will be your tour guide. We ask for no flash photography as he's walking you through the site, but I will actually hand over the screen to you, Rob.
Speaker 5 (12:09):
Awesome. Thanks, Jessica. I appreciate it. Go ahead and share my screen here. And I'm looking forward to being your tour guide. Let's pull this up. All right. Can you see my screen? Good to go. All right. Great. Well, so what I'm showing you right here is the landing page for the Pivvot citing platform. And there's a lot of different ways that you can jump into here to actually start to green light your sites, whether you wanted to drop a point at a given area within a map and start to search for what's around that point, you can also draw an area of interest. So if you want to confine yourself within a certain boundary, you can also draw that within the mapping map application, and then start to search within that area as well. You can also not just prospect for your own for sites where you might just be looking for opportunities, but let's say you already have existing opportunities, and you just want to be able to upload that and start to see what's going on.
Speaker 5 (13:09):
You can do that as well. So it's a very versatile tool to be able to start to evaluate those opportunities. What I'm going to show you right here is we have a substation here in the center of the screen and something that's been really gaining a lot of traction within the world is being able to calculate the usable area to even just see if there is usable area within a given distance of a point without even just looking for parcels just yet. So we can go ahead and just click this little icon here and within a flash, we can start to see this purple on the screen. Here is usable area that is within three miles of the substation. So we already can see that there are parcels of land out there that do have usable area. And this is all goes back to our usable area criteria flow down here, where we have preloaded certain criteria that we want to stay away from.
Speaker 5 (13:54):
So such as wetlands, or if we've got pipelines and existing infrastructure, we're not going to be able to build on top of that type of stuff. So we can very quickly eliminate those areas and start to see where the better opportunities exist. You could actually get a little bit more detailed as well in some of these where you can pull up land cover. And let's say for instance, you see a parcel of land that has some pretty good opportunities, but maybe you want to be able to purchase. What's already developed out there and you can get rid of it. Or you can start to look at taking away some of the forested areas to make that more usable. It starts to get a little bit versatile where you can now drag and drop these into usable and not considered usable areas. We also have the ability to look at usable area based on slope and not just slope, but also slope aspect.
Speaker 5 (14:36):
So, if you're looking for opportunities and you're saying that I'm going to go ahead and consider my land usable as long as it's no greater than 10% go for it. But let's say for instance, you wanted to get a little bit more daring, and you wanted to throw in a 10 to 15% slope go for it, but maybe you only want to look at the south and the west facing aspects. You can put that in there too, and you can start to toggle and you can really kind of customize that to fit your needs. So it's just a very easy way to just take a look at the usable area before you're even looking for other opportunities. So let's go back into the workflow. We know that there's usable area within the, within the given proximity. And now we want to look at different parcels of land so we can do it either by smart parcel or by tax mat parcels.
Speaker 5 (15:16):
So a really great thing that Pivvot has done in order to enhance the tax mat. Parcels is creating smart
parcels where we're looking at opportunities of similar land ownership. So, if we know that there are
landowners out there that have multiple parcels of land, they're going to aggregate those into one
specific smart parcel. So, you're not going to miss out on those opportunities. If there happens to be
smaller acreages land, it's going to aggregate that together and I'll show you how it does that here in just a second. So let's go ahead and just we'll turn off our usable area and let's go ahead and just find some parcels within three miles of this substation and just see what's available.
Speaker 5 (15:51):
So as it's searching for that, you can see on the screen. Now it's starting to populate those green outline areas are the opportunities that are between 104 hundred acres in size. And we can pull this up here and we can see the 20 opportunities that are available. And if we wanted to get a little more detailed, you know, let's say that this Meadows farm LLC looks like a, a really good opportunity. We can click down here. And this highlights how the smart parcel application works, where the Meadows farm has a lot of these smaller parcels that are all adjacent to each other. So it has aggregated it into one
opportunity. So it's a really great feature to have where you can see, we were looking for parcel sizes that were at least a hundred acres in size. We would've missed out on all of this right here, because there's not one parcel that the Meadows owns that is a hundred acres in size, but now it's aggregated it into one opportunity.
Speaker 5 (16:42):
So let's stick with the Meadows there and let's go ahead and add that to our project tab. And we'll just continue to evaluate and see how we can better green light that site. So we can go over to our project tab here and we already have a preloaded opportunity that we had in here over at the state of
Colorado. But we're still looking just to see if there's anything else that we want to consider. So we already have our preloaded usable criteria in there. Let's just go ahead and run that real quick for the Meadows. And let's just zoom into that right now.
Speaker 5 (17:16):
That way we can start to look at some of the conditions that are out at the site. So you can see also with
the tax map parcels, we've got all our individual parcels that have all been here. We can see where
they're at, but as it's calculating the usable area, we can also use our flyout tool over here and start to bring in some of the, the Pivvot layers and the data to help us evaluate this opportunity so we can scroll through. And we can just say, let's, let's look and just see what we have with corrosivity to steal because you know, that can be, you know, something we can design around, but it might not be, you know, great for what we want for this opportunity. And we can click through here and we can just see here that we've got some, some high corrosivity potential of the site and we can also come through and we can click on our depth to water.
Speaker 5 (17:56):
And we can just see, is there shallow water on the site and it looks like there might be something over
there. We can also turn on our hydro soils, see if we have anything hydro going on. And then with that,
we can also overlay some of the wetland maps and just see where the wetlands lie on the site. So now
we're starting to get a little bit of a clearer picture of what's going on. I mean, just with the click of a button that we're able to see that we've got this area over here on the west side, it looks like it, it could be some pretty good opportunity here over here. You know, we do have some wetland areas that our constraints are going to eliminate, but we're going to be able to see where the hydro soils and maybe that higher core's at, because it might not necessarily be a constraint that might not green light your site, but maybe it's just something that gives you a little bit more information and just a little bit of a higher level, understanding that there might be some extra cost associated with that Eastern portion of the site.
Speaker 5 (18:47):
And so we've got our usable area that's been calculated for the Meadows. So we started out with 275 acres and we've got about 166 usable. So now we can go ahead and we can zoom into those areas there. And we can see very quickly that over here on the west side, it looks like we've got some pretty good opportunity here. And this highlights the, the capability of you being very flexible and being able to use some of those math layers by being able to see that this area is usable, but still within some higher corrosivity areas.
Speaker 5 (19:16):
So while we about have that mapping feature on let's go ahead and look at our other opportunity over here, where we can see the usable area shown here and we can see it's, it's outside the wetland area here. It looks like from our corrosivity mapping, let's pull that up here and let's just take a look and just see what we've got. If I believe that is a yeah, it's low corrosivity over in this area here. So looking at this, you know, we've got, we don't have as much hydro soil. We don't have a, a higher corrosivity. So, you know, this might be a better opportunity for us to start to green light. And what I also want to point out here is that we do have usable area that's over some existing infrastructure, but maybe we obviously we can't build on that. So what we can do is use our site sketch site sketch function, and we can actually draw around that area and we can actually take that out so that we know that it's not, it's no longer considered usable. So, there's a lot of very versatile tools that you can use within the Pivvot platform you can scroll through and you can just see very quickly percentages of what's being taken up, whether that's going to be a pipeline it's streams, it's water bodies. We can see here that we've got a lot of wetlands being taken up nearly 20%. So it's a, it's a very easy look to be able to cross compare these sites.
Speaker 5 (20:27):
You're also able to do a side by side comparison. So you can go into the reporting area and you can start to look just side by side and just see, well, what what's really kind of, you know, what, what did I have that's going on from an acreage standpoint? So we can start to look at maybe even this corrosivity area here where we've got lower, corrosivity taking up about 59 acres of the site here and 66 here. So it's, we can kind of cross compare and we can just see what those opportunities are. Another ability within the platform is the reporting function. So you can come over and you can create parcel reports and you can also create environmental permitting reports. And you can think of these as just kind of the, the reports, the summary reports. It's a PDF that you can all gather around and look at together. It's going to give you a quick summary of the overview of the usable area. And it's going to go through and talk about the items that are important to you. This is a customizable feature within the Pivvot platform. So you can automatically start to see if there's an occurrence of wetlands, water bodies. If you have critical habitat at the site, something that's a very nice summary that you can use to share with everybody within the project team.
Speaker 5 (21:32):
And with that, those are just some of the high-level functions within Pivvot. You know, this is something
that we could definitely talk, probably talk for about an hour, hour and a half on, but I know we're going to be running short on time. So, I do want to turn it back to the other folks on the call and I'll go ahead and send it back to Jessica. And I appreciate actually no rich you're up. So, I'm going to turn it back to Rich and I just appreciate you letting me be your tour guide for the day.
Speaker 2 (21:55):
I I'll actually jump in here real quick. And as you're transitioning, I do want to let everybody know that Rob has a tour guide, Venmo fund. If you want to send him some tips, he's, he's saving up for a river rafting boat that Venmo will be provided at the end of this, but we do have rich waiting in the wings. He's ready to, to kick off his part of the show here. And I will share my screen again because we are, oh, you got to stop sharing Rob.
Speaker 5 (22:30):
There. I did.
Speaker 2 (22:31):
That we are simply the best! Better than all the rest!
Speaker 6 (22:44):
I'm going to stick to our day jobs. All right. Y'all thanks. Thanks Rob. Thanks Jessica. So many of you all might, you know, currently support your, your citing, your citing efforts through kind of internal
processes, whether that's you as a GIS person or your GIS team is supporting you, or maybe you're doing this through, through Google earth. And you know, this might be one of your first exposures to, you know, some of these very kind of site specific platforms to help you find sites and, and understand suitability, right? And there are just some table stake features out there that you should be kind of aware of aware of. And many of the, many of the platforms that are out there are, are very similar in, in this nature, right? So clearly the ability to prospect sites and, you know, not just, you know, click on a substation and look within two miles of it. But, you know, being able to kind of identify your own sites
by digitizing a large area and evaluating that or whatever the case may be right in our platform. I think
there's probably six or so different opportunities to go prospecting for sites. Of course, you need to be able to understand the usable area and where the potential constraints are, and it can't be a black box, right? You need to be able to take a look at that and understand what specifically is affecting my usable area. And then you'll also need, that's fine.
Speaker 6 (24:04):
You're you can also expect to have the publicly available data, right? So one of the big selling points for these, for these platforms is having some of that common, publicly available data, particularly as it
pertains to constraints where, you know, we'll talk about here in just a minute, which, which, which
some of the data sets that kind of differentiate our platform, right? So we're going, we're going to go over and above some of that common data. So you can have kind of a deeper, you know, pun intended understanding of the, of your sites. And of course, you need to be able to have a, you know, an intuitive user interface. So it's, it's straightforward because there's a lot of folks maybe on this call that have not, you know, utilized these types of platform and their knowledge right now is within Google earth.
Speaker 6 (24:44):
So it has to be pretty straightforward. You know, we definitely feel like we've accomplished that. And then lastly, as, as Rob was kind of wrapping up, he was talking about some of the reporting, right? We
need to be able to visualize these areas and visualize the constraints and the things that are impacting
our sites on the map. That's really important, right? But we also need to be able to have reporting, you know, some that, that is formatted in such a way that you can share it with other stakeholders, but also data, excuse me, in that first report that Rob showed you that is some that's raw data, raw acreage, so that you can start leveraging that, that information from a, from an estimation standpoint. And then lastly, what, what we didn't really talk about very much is the fact that you can download all this information, right?
Speaker 6 (25:27):
We're not keeping it for ourselves. You can take it out of your system. We recognize that is a critical part of the workflow is to be able to take out some of that data and pull it into some of your other platforms. So with that, what I'd like to do is just comment on some of the, on some of the features that, that differentiate us and, you know, truth be told some of these, right? Some of those gaps can probably be closed and some of these absolutely impossible for other organizations to catch up with us. Right? So I'll talk about that in just a minute. There's two themes that I'd like to cover here. One is going to be data, right? So much of the information you see on here is related to the data. And I talked about earlier, how, you know, we, we are focused on data.
Speaker 6 (26:07):
We are going to continue to improve that data. We're going to bring in more data based on what our
customers are saying. Some of that data, you know, is going to be very much kind of from a proprietary
perspective, which we are thrilled about. So, but the other, the other theme here, and it's really that first bullet is, is our enterprise capabilities, right? So Pivvot is a solution. It's not just a niche application. That's going to support solar siding and wind siding. Right? As Jessica mentioned earlier, we are also, our platform is also designed to support linear corridor routing, whether that is a, you know, two mile gentie or a 300 5750 mile, you know, electrical transmission route. And then we have, we have functionality or, or capabilities kind of in between that right. Very nimble tools that allow virtually anybody in your organization to identify an area and get that, that reporting associated with it.
Speaker 6 (26:58):
So you can understand what's around you. That's really important to us, right? So we're, we're not just here to find solar sites and wind sites, but that conversation goes much further. The other thing about the enterprise capabilities is the ability to support single sign on the, the, the, the fact that we have SOC two compliance. Those are absolute deal breakers for some of our customers, right? From an it perspective and a security perspective, and getting through a SOC two compliance is not trivial, right? So we have thrown time, money, and resources at that to ensure that we have that. And we have been dragged through the ringer and we have come out, we have come out shining and we have won. We have, you know, we have gained clients because of that, that type of security focus. All right, lemme just talk about the data.
Speaker 6 (27:47):
Okay. So on the left hand side, you know, we have, we do have high resolution slope. That information is
being derived straight from raw LIDAR data. That that is a capability that does not currently exist
elsewhere. In other, in other platforms, it's a big deal. It's not a trivial thing to accomplish because it can be very UN performant because it is so much data, but the, that high resolution slope and even the aspect, right, being able to configure the aspect to refine your usable area that is walking Pivvot into a conversation with other stakeholders inside your organization, right. It's also giving us ability to produce deliverables that can actually improve the return on your investment when you do that type of site selection, because we're going to be able to export that type of data out, which can be used by
preliminary designers and engineers, right?
Speaker 6 (28:38):
So as you, as you are refining your site and you are building the story for a site before you might hand it
off, or whether you're an organization that you have solar developers and engineers and so on, and you hand them off, you're going to be able to hand off some of this more refined data that starts to speak to design and engineering to build on that, right on the right hand side, I'm going to bounce around a little bit, but on the right hand side, you can see some of the proprietary data, the soil behavior class, and that enhanced cars. Those are both data sets that Terracon that are inspired by Terracon and Terracon expertise. I'm not going to go into a lot of detail on those because they do take a little bit of time to kind of understand and appreciate, again, this is an opportunity just to introduce to you all that we do have data.
Speaker 6 (29:20):
We do have technology that is, that stands out from the rest, no pun intended, but you we're better
than all the rest, but those types of data sets are going to set us apart and set your sites apart. And to
build on that even further, if you look down there in the bottom, right, right. That Terracon historical
subsurface data, that right there is 50 years of experience in over 2 million boring locations, right. We're going to start taking that information and start incorporating that into our platform so that you have a much more realistic understanding of what's happening below your site. Okay. That will never be touched by another, by another provider out there, right? No, one's going to have 50 years of experience in all of those locations to be able to build on that data. So that's a really exciting
opportunity. One that Terracon and Pivvot are excited to, to leverage.
Speaker 6 (30:08):
I'm going to bounce back over to the left-hand side here for just a minute. You're going to see that third bullet point down that Rex tag information. So many of us, the Pivvot story kind of stretches back to 2014. And a lot of that came out of the oil and gas industry. And that data set is hands down the best data set out there when it comes to understanding where existing infrastructure, where, where there is existing infrastructure. And that conversation extends into electrical transmission lines as well. Pivvot
pays a pretty penny for that data, right? It comes at a cost for us, but when you look at our pricing
structure, right, we are very competitive with our, with our, with our competitors, right? So we're not, we're not necessarily sending that cost to you all, but it makes our data better to the, to the extent that it literally has eight times the number of records in some of the publicly available, like the EIA data, which is being used in a lot of other platforms now with that said, right, we have all of that data in
house, which means that we can enhance our re tag data, where there are gaps with some of our
publicly available data, right.
Speaker 6 (31:13):
That's where us being kind of masters of data really comes into play. And that conversation extends
when we get down to those smart parcels, which Rob talked about earlier, right? For example, in the
state of Virginia, I don't exactly have the numbers, but you'll understand and appreciate the magnitude. But if you go looking for opportunities in Virginia that are 250 acres or larger, you're going to come up with like somewhere roughly of 2000 opportunities, right after you, after we have run our algorithm and created our smart parcel layer, you are now looking at somewhere between seven and 8,000 opportunities, right? Because there are so many small fragmented parcels, but they're owned by the same person. We're, we're blending those together. And we're doing that every 45 days when we up upload that or refresh that data. The last thing I want to, what I want to comp or comment on, excuse me.
Speaker 6 (32:02):
And Jessica talked about this, right? Both Rob and Jessica come from the Stage1 team that is a
successful platform that is providing you a report where we are sending those sites to our local
geotechnical engineers in the area that you're working in. And they're taking a combination of publicly available data, all of that historical data, and then their expertise in that area and providing you an expert opinion on that site. So when you think about this story, right, you've, you've got the ability with the Pivvot platform to come in and, and develop a site from the very beginning, go prospecting for those opportunities, extend that conversation with some of our data, right? Take that next step, take that, that next step into Stage1, which is going to give you a much more refined understanding of what's going on underground. And then that walks us into, you know, some of the higher end geotechnical capabilities that, that Terracon supports. So with that, I'm not going to sing anymore songs as cool as that might be, but Jessica, if you want to take it from here.
Speaker 2 (33:08):
All right. So we are at a point where we can open this up for questions. So it looks like rich and Rob, I'm going to tag you in what are the hydro wetland streams and et cetera, information pulling from where's that coming from?
Speaker 6 (33:25):
Yeah. So the, the hydrologic data that we have in the system is primarily it is exclusively, publicly
available data. I would tell you where we, where we kind of differentiate in that conversation during the,
during the demonstration, Rob showed you that, that hydro soil layer and the depth to water layer,
although that's part of the public available and, and NRCS data, the SSURGO data, we have carved those out. I don't know how familiar you are with that, with that SSURGO data, but it is, it is very complicated. We are starting to peel out those types of layers so that we can report on them individually, so that you have a greater understanding of sort of the conditions on that particular property. As far as the zoning types, we do have land cover information that doesn''t really speak to zoning zonings.
Speaker 6 (34:20):
One of those sort of unicorn data sets. I can totally appreciate why people want to ask about that. We
want it, we have done the legwork to try to find it right now, the pushup to go gather all of that local
municipality type zoning information is, is too great for us to be able to do that and be able to
consistently keep that up to date. There are organizations out there that are starting to pop up that are
doing that aggregation, kind of like you do with parcels. We are watching them very closely and, and
excited about the opportunity we just have not pulled the trigger.
Speaker 2 (34:57):
All right. Any other question questions?
Speaker 6 (34:59):
Speaker 2 (35:00):
No, you're good. We've got one in the, the chat here. We've got two, actually one in the chat. So how
often is your data updated?
Speaker 6 (35:12):
Yeah. Good question. So we're updating our information anywhere between 45 days, that specifically is
related to the parcels to 90 days. So our federal data sets, we, we go to the individual agencies every 90
days and evaluate whether that data has been updated. If not, then we don't touch it. If it has been,
then we update that thin, that information as we get down to more of the state and county level data,
we're doing that a little bit more frequently. I should also mention that in our reporting, we will identify
the agency where that data is coming from, and also its latest published date. So if you need that for
metadata or reporting purposes, then you'll have that available. I'll go ahead and jump through these
questions. Carol. That's a great question. We don't currently export out directly to CAD some of our
features. We do have a reporting feature that re feature that exports out the site, the constrained area,
the usable area, et cetera, to a KMZ. Otherwise we're exporting out most of our information to us, a Esri
file geo database, which can be easily converted to like a CAD DXF format or shape file.
Speaker 6 (36:23):
And thank you, Amanda. We are rocking it.
Speaker 2 (36:29):
All right. So it looks like we covered the questions in the chat and we did, we are a couple minutes over.
So as we kind of usher you out of here, we do want to make sure that you are aware of our upcoming
series. And we are really excited. One of the, the perks of being with Terra con now means that we have
not only coworkers to brag about, but coworkers to learn from. So we want to share all of their
knowledge with you as well. So we have some opportunities for AIA credits coming up as well. So we've
got a geotechnical 1 0 1 series happening and starting towards the end of July. And then when that is
complete, we will move over to our environmental 1 0 1 series. So keep an eye out on our website on
our LinkedIn page for more information. But those first two in each of, of geotechnical and
environmental will be able to, to get you some AIA credits for that.
Speaker 2 (37:28):
And then what we want to do is really just show you if your geotechnical engineer was sitting on your
shoulder, as you were prospect prospecting for a site, what they would want to make sure that you are
aware of and those decisions that you're making during site selection and how that impacts the
geotechnical side of things, as well as the environmental side of things. So with that, thank you so much
for, for joining us today. We'll make sure to get you the recording of this and it will be available on our
website and we hope that you have an awesome day and just keep in mind that we're simply the best.
So thank you everyone.
