What’s in the GIS Express Checkup?
We provide you and your staff with an online questionnaire. Our Senior Strategic Planners use the results from the anonymous questionnaire to evaluate your organization’s current state of GIS.
On-Site Interviews with Key Staff
Interviews with key staff help the Senior Strategic Planners identify details about your GIS that were not revealed in the questionnaire. Our staff will ask questions about the details of your process, SOPs, organizational strucutre, data accuracy, software, training, and more.
Needs Assessment and Recommendations Report
The end result is a detailed report containing assessments and recommendations in regards to: Governance; Data and Databases; Procedures, Workflow, and Integration; GIS Software; Infrastructure; and Training, Education, and Knowledge Transfer.

Frequently Asked Questions
