Geographic Information System Development/Management

Code: TP-3350.1800-250

Programs that develop, maintain and manage information systems that integrate, store, manipulate, analyze, display and share geographic information for informed decision making. Services may include GIS management consulting, georeferencing, map development services, creation of GIS-ready datasets from client supplied maps, spatial data modeling and analysis and geocoding services that assign geographic coordinates (generally latitude and longitude) to street addresses as well as other points and features. When the geographic coordinates are known, the features can be mapped and entered into geographic information systems, or the coordinates can be embedded into media such as digital photographs via geotagging. Reverse geocoding services (finding associated textual locations such as a street address using geographic coordinates) may also be available.
