Most data has a geospatial component. GIS enables the spatial aspect of your
data and opens it to powerful tools for visual interpretation, investigation, and
automated modeling. These
geospatial tools help you turn your data into actionable information that
drives better decisions and planning. The most useful applications of GIS begin with a deep understanding of
the business or mission needs and then combine the appropriate technologies
with the art of visualization into an intuitive solution. Geocent approaches its GIS projects in
this manner and we pride ourselves in choosing the right tool for the job.
Geocent has expertise in core development
of the leading open source GIS packages as well as custom implementations of the
leading commercial GIS applications. We ensure that our GIS solutions developers are up to date with the
state of the art in
GIS technologies and applications through internal research and development
efforts. You wouldn’t hire a
mechanic who has only one wrench — trust your geospatial needs to someone
who has a full toolbox. Our toolbox includes OpenSource, Custom, and Off The Shelf software.

for enhancing your business or mission with GIS is put in place by exposing the
geospatial component of the relevant data. Geocent’s GIS subject matter experts work to understand your
needs and identify the data required for decision support by developing and
verifying customized use cases. We
have history of innovative geospatial enablement of various data sources ranging
from mobile devices for real-time emergency management to 5-dimensional
oceanographic forecast models. Adhering
to the well-defined industry standards for geospatial data services facilitates
simplified integration and interoperability. Geocent is a recognized expert in applying these standards to
both custom-developed and existing data stores.
the art and science of making maps. GIS pushes the map itself into a dynamic medium for visualization that
can support decision-making through heightened situational awareness. Geocent’s GIS solutions deliver your GIS
data in tailored visualizations that reflect your operational needs but remain
flexible for user defined views and queries. Our teams combine traditional cartographic techniques and
the best technologies into visualization tools you can use on the platform you
is used to derive new information by performing logical or mathematical
operations on multiple data sources and fusing the results into an appropriate decision support format. Leveraging our GIS teams’ expertise in
Operations Research, Physics, Mathematics, Emergency Management, and Mission
Planning, Geocent builds geospatial models using industry standards. We have supported business use cases, such
as sending an email listing all of a customer’s retail locations within
the latest NOAA hurricane model cone of error. We also build operation-oriented models that pull from
various data sources to deliver mission planners geospatial layers depicting
the forecasted performance of tactical platforms.
