2017

  • In September, GREENLAND®  completed (and within a year) the next evolution of “The Healthy River Ecosystem AssessmenT System” (aka THREATS™).
 
The development of this Internet open data and open source GIS platform was inspired from earlier research funded by the Canadian Water Network and prototype development team led by Dr. Monique Dubé. Thereafter, GREENLAND® secured source code rights and began developing the new platform last year. The platform includes a cumulative effects assessment focus and can be used to also develop related policies and management frameworks. THREATS™ can also serve as a cost-effective tool for watershed and land use planning and assist researchers at colleges and universities. THREATS™ can be customized to include other real-time databases and specific client needs of Indigenous communities, government agencies and resource industries. Further development phases will be initiated soon for export (global market) opportunities and linking western-science with Indigenous knowledge to assess cumulative effects. A platform overview is available, as well as an introductory video. The video introduces just a few (of MANY possible!) applications that can access real-time and open data, as well as an extensive Canada-wide library of climate and watershed databases with science-based modeling functions.
 
GREENLAND® also sincerely thanks the Government of Canada and the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC - IRAP) for support in developing this version of THREATS™.
 
For more information about THREATS™ or to schedule a live (web) demonstration, please contact Greenland.THREATS@grnland.com

Client Testimonials

Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation

The Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation (ICCA) is a national applied research centre that focuses on mobilizing practical and cost-effective solutions to address climate change and extreme weather events. To this end, the ICCA is an incubator of new adaptation ideas, conducting research, knowledge mobilization and promoting initiatives aimed at de-risking the negative impacts of a changing climate and extreme weather. One of ICCA’s concerns is a growing uninsurable housing market in Canada relative to sewer backup.
 
ICCA believes the advanced technology and features of the SafeSump system can be instrumental to mitigating basement flood potential.  I have one of the first prototypes of the SafeSump system installed in my home. I have interacted directly with the start-up founder. I view him as entrepreneurial and passionate, and have met other members of his team with whom I was similarly impressed.  I am also familiar with Greenland Consulting Engineers, and congratulate SafeSump Inc. on their choice to create a joint “SafeSump” venture with Greenland.
 
ICCA looks forward to a supportive relationship with SafeSump Inc. upon the larger scale availability of their much-needed technology.

On behalf of Moriyama & Teshima Architects, I would like to thank you for your high level of competence and involvement expressed in the design process on the Keele Street Public School Addition and Renovation project… I felt you were integral and instrumental in coming in and taking the project from an ill-fated design…to design completion, tender and the approvals stage. You showed high levels of knowledge and understanding in your field, and your thoroughness and professionalism have led to the success of this project to date. I am thoroughly satisfied in the way you designed the services system, dealt with authorities having jurisdiction, and for your recommendations regarding budgetary concerns.
