Education. Enthusiasm. Leading By Example. These are just a few words that sum up our GeoDecisions team experience throughout American Education Week and the celebration of geography and all things geospatial.

The decision to build a new public facility requires close evaluation of all factors related to the potential new location. One of the main issues that impacts the decision “to build, or not to build” is the supply and demand of the service provided by the new facility. A GIS geo-processing tool can be used to rank available plots based on the ability to fill this supply-and-demand gap.

Last time we looked at Cloud Migration, we discussed options, particularly business choices. Services like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google App Engine offer the ability to distribute computing services across physical assets, but also provide several different ways to go about it. This time, we want to look at the technical decisions to be made, and consider a few tips from the GeoDecisions team.

As a geospatial consulting firm, we are in a unique position to appreciate and visualize all angles when supporting the integrated water resource needs of our clients. In addition to enterprise information technology, we collaborate with engineers in our parent company, Gannett Fleming, to understand the water cycle process from point A to point Z, and frequently in 3-D.

One of our first Collaborative Research and Innovation Center (CRIC) endeavors funded by Gannett Fleming was a GeoDecisions project called Fishidy.com - a social media and geospatial platform for anglers that could be expanded for hunters and outdoorsmen. Maybe you’ve heard of it? It’s not only online, but can be found in your friendly neighborhood Walmart.

There have been many blogs written about the technical aspect of the Esri® International User Conference (UC). If you are looking for that type of blog, I need to forewarn you… this is not it!

As part of the 2nd Annual GeoD ecisions Hack-a-thon competition, I worked with my Madison, Wisconsin, coworkers to create “EasyAsset,” a mobile GIS data collection application with Optical Character Recognition (OCR). This tool would enable field workers to more easily collect GIS data points by taking a picture of a nameplate, model number, or asset tag on a hydrant, pump, sign, or signal.

As a new U.S. immigrant, I did not know much about American sports, especially baseball. GeoDecisions’ 2014 Map-A-Thon contest (a spin-off from our annual Hack-A-Thon innovation event), seemed like a great chance for me to become more familiar with different American baseball teams and fan demographics. Although I am still learning the finer details of how the sport is played, compiling baseball map information helped me to better understand each team’s location and sphere of influence.

GeoDecisions staff traveled well in May, when a cluster of GIS conferences ran concurrently up and down the East Coast. Several of us (on the transportation side, of course) covered the greatest distance to Burlington, Vermont, to experience the annual GIS in Transportation (GIS-T) conference. And it was well worth the trip!
