Who We Help

We help clients in numerous sectors use geospatial data and technology effectively.

How We Help

We think it makes sense to approach our work in a way that allows room for creative design and problem-solving processes to flourish. To that end, we offer several straightforward and flexible ways to work with you, from fixed-fee project-focused engagements to retainer-based contracts.

Mapping Projects

Have a project that "needs a map"? That can mean a lot of things! We bring to bear our geospatial technology expertise to create focused digital or paper maps, custom mapping applications, geodatabases for your data, or geospatial analysis tools for your workflows—any content, format, use, or audience.

Virtual Geospatial Technology Officer (vGTO)

When you know that maps and geodata are important to what you do, but you need help. Whether it's choosing technology, building staff technical capacity, executing some project work, or just understanding the landscape of possibilities, we can help. Our vGTO service provides you with a dedicated geospatial technology professional who can help get things up and running in a sustainable way.

GIS Department-as-a-Service

For teams where developing and executing a long-term geospatial technology strategy is necessary, and/or where active GIS support is needed for an extended period of time (think projects lasting 6+ months), we can provide dedicated geospatial and web technology professionals to help tackle anything. Think of this as having your own dedicated GIS, geospatial, and geo-database development team on-call or in-house.
