Alta in a nutshell

We are a creative multidisciplinary team of experienced consultants with a broad professional background, leading in our fields of expertise.

Alta is a consulting company, established in 2001, specializing in land-use strategy and planning along with environmental assessments, with public and stakeholder consultation. This includes work on municipal planning, master planning and site planning, the National Planning Strategy, environmental impact assessment (EIA), strategic environmental assessments (SEA) and numerous related consultation projects. We also assist in regional and strategic economic development planning (tourism sector included), the planning of National Parks in Iceland and protected areas. 

Alta uses advanced spatial analysis (Geographic Information Systems) as a tool to visualize, analyze, and interpret data. 

Alta has made publicly available an interactive web map for baseline planning and environmental analysis in Iceland. See here www.vefsja.is and a partly version here at www.vefsja.is/en 

Our projects are interdisciplinary and diverse and our clients range from municipalities, ministries, governmental agencies and private companies.

PLANNING AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Spatial planning and the environment play a key role in the economic and social development of a community. 

 

Alta offers consulting services at all planning levels, in regional and strategic economic development planning (tourism sector included), the planning of national parks in Iceland and protected areas, along with strategic environmental assessments (SEA) and environmental impact assessment (EIA).

STRATEGY AND LAND USE

Alta offers help in setting a strategy, based on a shared vision, and making plans to pursue that strategy. 

 

Constructive public and stakeholder consultation and engagement is thread into all our projects and a key factor in all our projects.

SPATIAL ANALYSIS

GIS (geographic information system) is a tool for advanced spatial analysis to visualize, analyze, and interpret data to understand the world around us. Alta both uses GIS and offers help to others in the field.

Alta has made publicly available an interactive web map for baseline planning and environmental analysis in Iceland. See here www.vefsja.is and a partly version here at www.vefsja.is/en.
