Growing GIS Business in North Carolina

GeoDecisions’ business is growing throughout North Carolina, as we expand our footprint and enhance our Gannett Fleming engineering service offerings. Selected as a prequalified vendor to provide statewide GIS services contract, we can perform work for North Carolina state, local government, or quasi-governmental agencies, such as MPOs and universities, in the following areas:

  • Strategic planning

  • GIS data collection

  • GIS data management

  • GIS application development and implementation services

  • GIS consulting.

To support our Southeast initiatives, GeoDecisions Project Manager Caitlyn Meyer transferred to our Raleigh, North Carolina, office from our Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, headquarters in August. Caitlyn is strengthening Gannett Fleming and GeoDecisions GIS, planning, design, and construction operations as well as developing business relationships with North Carolina agencies.  Caitlyn's project portfolio includes our multiple award winning Maintenance-IQ application, which integrates data from more than 20 different systems into an easy-to-use data visualization and analysis web mapping tool. GIS applications such as Maintenance-IQ help streamline the NEPA process, maintain planning applications that support roadway projects, and feature mobile data collection apps to support asset management programs.  

In addition to Caitlyn, GeoDecisions Senior Project Manager, Kevin Yount, has relocated to the Charlotte, North Carolina, area. Kevin is working on the Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation’s (PART) implementation of GeoDecisions Track, a web-based, configurable solution used to assist clients with asset tracking, reporting, and analytics.

To better meet its Federal Transit Administration and National Transit Database reporting requirements, PART requires a system that can provide real-time vehicle tracking and data management for its vanpool fleet. The GeoDecisions Track solution will allow PART to quickly create dashboard applications system users, providing them with readily available business data and analytical information.  The ability to configure these reports will prove valuable as standards change and user needs evolve.

“We're very excited to grow throughout North Carolina,” said Caitlyn. “Thanks in part to us relocated Yankees, the state’s population is booming, and is planned to grow 40 percent by 2040.” This growth will increase demands on the state’s infrastructure and the need for programs to keep pace.

Supporting Pennsylvania’s GIS Strategic Planning

Supporting Pennsylvania’s GIS Strategic Planning

GeoDecisions is currently supporting the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with its GIS strategic planning process. The Pennsylvania State Geospatial Coordinating Board (GeoBoard) sought an experienced strategic planning and facilitation firm to assist its efforts to derive a plan that guides GIS services and governance over the next three to five years. The GeoBoard’s mission is to provide advice and recommendations to the Governor and the public on geospatial interests, uniform data standards, coordination and efficiency in geospatial policy, and technology across different sectors. The GeoBoard is comprised of representatives from federal, state, and local government, in addition to utility and higher education sectors.
