Short description: Geospatial analysis supports optimization activities throughout all stages of an environmental investigation or cleanup by improving performance of characterization and remediation activities, increasing monitoring efficiency, and justifying decisions. This Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council (ITRC) guide illustrates the practical application of geospatial analyses to support optimization activities and help practitioners apply geospatial analyses to their projects. This information will help state regulators and other practitioners to understand, evaluate, and make informed decisions about geospatial analyses for optimizing activities during environmental investigation or remediation. The material presented provides not only highly technical detail but also introductory information for those who may not have expertise in this area
