Traditional Maps have been the facilitator to some of the greatest discoveries in history. They have always had the power to guide and inspire, but the reach of maps has only broadened in modern times.

Smart mapping technology commonly known as Geographic Information System (GIS) technology has added a new dimension to the practice of analyzing information.

GIS technology makes the study of spatial relationships within data possible. The technology literally maps the geographic elements contained within an organization’s data, exposing patterns and connections that may otherwise be hidden in a maze of numeric tables.

The Power of Mapping

A geographic information system (GIS) lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends. GIS benefits organizations of all sizes and in almost every industry. There is a growing interest in and awareness of the economic and strategic value of GIS.

Cost Savings from Greater Efficiency GIS is commonly used to optimize maintenance schedules and daily fleet movements. Typical implementations can result in a savings of 10 to 30 percent in operational expenses through reduction in fuel use and staff time, improved customer service, and more effective scheduling.

Better Decision Making

GIS is the go-to technology for making better decisions about location. Common examples include real estate site selection, route/corridor selection, evacuation planning, conservation, natural resource extraction, etc. Making correct decisions about location is critical to the success of an organization.

Improved Communication GIS-based maps and visualizations significantly assist in understanding situations and in storytelling. They are a type of language that improves communication between different teams, departments, disciplines, professional fields, organizations, and the public.

Better Record Keeping

Many organizations have a primary responsibility of maintaining authoritative records about the status and change of geography. GIS provides a strong framework for managing these types of records with full transaction support and reporting tools.
