Michael Baker International

Since 1940, Michael Baker International has built its global legacy – and full continuum of solutions – on a diverse culture of innovation.

Solving our clients’ most complex challenges often requires new ideas, new processes, new technologies – new solutions where none existed previously. Our success always has drawn on the collaborative creativity of our dedicated employees, who leverage our diverse backgrounds, expertise, experience and can-do attitudes to make the communities we serve safer, more accessible, more environmentally sustainable, and more livable.

The result: a growing portfolio of exclusive innovations at Michael Baker that add significant dimension and value to our ability to deliver our full continuum of solutions. Michael Baker innovations – and the innovators behind them – serve as game-changing differentiators in the industry and demonstrate once again how We Make a Difference for our clients and the communities we serve.

  • A suite of products and services to support the NG9-1-1 call-routing environment
    Michael Baker International's DataMark suite of software solutions and services support public safety answering points (PSAPs) and their GIS stakeholders in this mission critical transition. DataMark solves upgrade challenges, helps improve public-safety communications and ensures the data meets the precise NG9-1-1 requirements. The software considers all aspects of the data that is provisioned to a NG9-1-1 system (data creation, clean up, quality and maintenance workflows). With extensive expertise in GIS and public safety, Michael Baker can help GIS departments determine what they need to do in order to support NG9-1-1.
  • GIS-based mobile app for managing infrastructure assets
    Michael Baker International engineers created a mobile phone-based computer software platform, MICAP (Mobile Infraction Capture) to collect and analyze data and images over broad geographic areas to help monitor utility equipment for changes and compliance problems. The GIS-based MICAP platform provides access to licensed data, as well as the collection and analysis of new data and images, delivering an improved workflow interface for managing assessments, repairs, and geographic changes to infrastructure assets. It is designed for state agencies, municipalities, utility companies, land developers and other engineering firms that need to effectively monitor and manage utility poles, underground cables, utility pipelines, bridges, runway infrastructure and other assets. MICAP is free and available via the App Store and Google Play.
  • Local watershed assessment at the push of a button
    iWATR (Integrated Watershed Assessment Tool for Restoration) is a mobile app-based innovation developed by Michael Baker International’s water services team to add speed, capability – and value ̶ to provide an easy-to-use assessment tool for any city, county or state planner across the U.S. to develop or better manage local land. The app combines GPS features and data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other government sources, to compile local data at the push of a few buttons. It tabulates a comprehensive assessment, and provides several solution options with cost estimates to solve specific water quality-impairment problems in watershed areas.
  • Analyzing bridge data with ease
    iUSBridges, is a geographic information system (GIS)-based app that allows users to locate nearby bridges, explore details of those bridges, save information on favorite bridges, and share feedback. iUSBridges uses data retrieved from the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) National Bridge Inventory. State departments of transportation provide updated bridge information on a cyclical basis to the FHWA.

Infrastructure Mapping and Autonomy

We leverage technology developed by our autonomous vehicle mapping partner for rapid LiDAR processing and map production.

Infrastructure Mapping and Autonomy was created out of the Heavy Industry of Civil Maps an industry-leading artificial intelligence company, providing LiDAR processing and feature extraction services. Our technology was first developed to meet the high accuracy, 3D mapping needs of the autonomous vehicle industry. IMA is now bringing this technology to the engineering and infrastructure industries.

​Our technology allows us to scan, map and report on assets or asset areas at a rapid pace and affordable cost not possible before. ​Leveraging our proprietary artificial intelligence, patented cloud based processing technology, and global relationships for LiDAR collection and processing and quality control, we can generate data sets, models and change detection reports 10x faster than with traditional methods.

​By creating HD 3D maps in the earliest stages of projects, our clients are able to increase the NVP of projects by lowering the time to completion and reducing and deferring survey programs until the later stages of a project. Additionally, clients with existing assets to manage benefit from our centralized on-line business-to-business services to manage their rapid feature extraction and mapping programs. Eliminating the inefficient traditional person to person sales and manual data handling processes. Our al-a-carte on-line tools allow asset owners to individually direct and manage their mapping projects, resulting in quicker turn around times and lower costs overall.

The Center for Geospatial Analytics at NC State University is the hub for interdisciplinary teaching and research in the Geospatial Sciences. We work alongside top researchers, policy experts and leaders in industry to apply geospatial analytics to a host of problems — from preparing for floods to controlling the spread of invasive species.

“Geospatial analytics” are the evolving tools and approaches that help to discover, interpret, and communicate meaningful patterns in location-based data. We develop them to observe the world around us; to model the processes that act upon it and test potential interventions; and to visualize data in new ways that spur collaborative decision-making.

All our work serves a common purpose: advancing innovative solutions to grand societal challenges. Many of our tools and applications are open-source, free and adaptable for others to use. Through innovations in teaching and research, we support a wide range of real-world stakeholders facing complex problems.
