CGIS can empower any organization to use GIS technology to its full potential.
Enterprise GIS Solutions
An enterprise GIS is an integrated system of interoperable components combined to provide cost effective, comprehensive, and optimal use of GIS technology and geospatial data. CGIS helps organizations establish an enterprise GIS or expand their current GIS capabilities.
Geospatial Web Development and Hosting
Map-enabled websites improve business processes with secure access to geospatial data anytime and anywhere through a web browser.
Desktop GIS Development and Customization
Desktop GIS applications allow users to display, query, update, and analyze data about geographic locations and the information linked to those locations. CGIS develops and customizes desktop GIS applications that offer tools for uniform organization and storage of geographic data, along with a full suite of display and analysis tools that help connect the “where” with the “what” of data—an especially useful toolkit for planners and other decision-makers.
Geospatial Analysis and Database Development
Geographic data forms a foundation for a wide range of key decisions, from protecting natural resources, to planning for the future, to responding to emergencies. GIS enables organizations to gather, consolidate, and analyze the data then share the results with others via maps—not simply location maps, but color-coded maps, for example, based on data from a spreadsheet. With GIS, information can be visualized in highly effective ways.
Access to information, especially location-based information while on the go, can be critical to an organization’s success. CGIS develops mobile applications and websites to collect, analyze, and share that information.
To provide a cost-effective, time-efficient strategy for obtaining the expertise needed to develop and maintain an effective GIS, CGIS places highly qualified individuals with organizations that need GIS support but do not have the resources to hire permanent staff.
Cartography is the art and science of creating maps to visually represent geographic themes. GIS technology allows CGIS to create custom maps for diverse uses.
