Geodesy's services range from consulting to full-scale
application development and systems integration.
We can analyze
and catalog GIS data and determine if data should be organized
centrally, distributed, and/or replicated. Application needs are
identified and appropriate combinations of off-the-shelf
software and custom development recommended – always balancing
initial cost with long term savings.
Geodesy can extend off-the-shelf software to add new capabilities, automate
repetitive tasks to reduce steps, and hide unused features to reduce complexity.
For example, we can provide an ArcGIS
to display lists of feature-related documents for viewing,
such as a list of plats associated with a selected parcel.
quickly delivered application can fill in while a more sophisticated,
long-range automation plan is implemented. Our
a GIS-centric document management system, and the Permit Tracker,
are examples of these high-value, low-cost solutions.
Our core work is the creation of desktop and web-based applications designed
to suit the needs of a specific audience.
These applications are typically map-centric but may also be analysis-centric with map
data used in a secondary role.
For example, our
applications focus on the use of an interactive map, while
applications like REDARS,
TRUE, and ROME use geographics only in support of analysis.
Geodesy's systems integration solutions are typically enterprise-oriented
and often GIS-centric.
We use a model we call the Enterprise Integration Engine
that exchanges data between systems in batch or as edits are made.
EIE-IO (IO emphasizing its modularity and bi-directional capacity) accommodates data silos,
is fault tolerant by definition, and tracks and reports exceptions.
Once a GIS is in place, Geodesy can support the system remotely, providing
an online GIS help desk, GIS data maintenance, analysis, and assistance with
