GIS & Spatial Data Management

GdB develops and customizes applications to manage spatial data for our clients. Our goal is to empower non-technical stakeholders with access to critical geospatial information via the web - creating a central repository of data which can be leveraged on future projects or maintenance of in-service assets.

We use multiple methods of data collection, including custom software, and ArcGIS Online services. GdB recognizes the value in using GIS to manage all types of spatial data. As the industry has become more digital, the need to manage this data requires the technical skill and innovation that we provide. GdB is proud to be a Silver ESRI Partner Network member, working closely with ESRI to provide the most streamlined and modern solutions to our clients. Taking part in the ESRI User Conference every year in San Diego, the GIS Specialist team at GdB are up to date on the latest and greatest methods and tools.
