Geographic Data and Management Solutions (GDMS)was established to provide complete geographic information systems (GIS) solutions. GDMS provides the hardware, software and consulting services necessary to develop an effective GIS. We have the necessary resources and expertise to aid our clients with the establishment and maintenance of such systems. Our goal is to ensure that our clients obtain the maximum benefits possible from their GIS.
A Geographic Information System aids in the visualization of data, mapping and in the decision-making process. Nothing places data in perspective quite like seeing it displayed on a map. Since over 85% of data has a geographic element, resources are available to access the information you need.
GDMS can help you unleash the power of geography by combining your data with maps to create colorful, information-rich pictures. You'll be making smarter decisions in less time than you could ever have imagined.
Before launching into GIS technology, it is extremely important that users carefully consider and plan for their needs before embarking on system acquisition, application and database development. Laying a good foundation from the beginning will lead to a successful start as well as potential for future development. Our consulting staff will thoroughly assess each client's needs to support the design of efficient databases, applications, and systems to meet those needs.
