Geographical Information Systems

Qualified GIS Application Developer & GIS Analyst

I analyze, design, develop and integrate web applications for organizations that need integration with Geographical Information Systems. My focus for any GIS web applications is hold to standards and specifications as defined by the Open Geospatial Consortium. Holding true to these specifications insures that a Geo based application will be fully interchangeable with other Geo based systems, such as ArcGIS, Google Maps, Mapquest and others.

There is a core difference between a GIS analyst and a GIS application developer. A GIS analyst understands how a GIS system works; whereas, a GIS developer understands not only how the system works but they are also able to develop the system from the ground up.

My experience is focused on, but not limited to the following platforms:

  • Google Maps API
  • OpenLayers
  • GeoJSON
  • postgresSQL
  • GeoServer
  • Custom GIS web application development
  • GIS integration with Drupal

It is important to note that a GIS Professional typically holds a degree not related to computer science and likely has limited experience in software development. Only a qualified software engineer with a background in computer science can develop a custom GIS application to meet your software requirements.
