Many GIS organizations today have desktop GIS infrastructures. These are typically based upon client-server architectures with large spatial databases and a number of complex desktop CAD or desktop GIS applications. While such a setup works well in many cases for ad-hoc projects and complex data creation and analysis work, there is a real need for organizations to evolve these traditional infrastructures to better integrate with non-GIS and non-CAD enterprise systems. Moreover, web services and web applications can augment, enrich and complement the client-server GIS world.
43 North GIS can help organizations transform their existing client-server GIS infrastructure to better integrate into the enterprise IT landscape. In addition, we can help you design an infrastructure that will leverage internal and external web services to improve the overall effectiveness of your GIS.
Are you getting the most out of your GIS now?
It often seems like the capabilities of GIS software grows at a rate faster than most organizations can adapt. Most GIS users typically use only a small fraction of the capabilities already in the GIS software they have today. Huge gains in productivity, efficiency and quality can often be had just by using the same tool you have today in a new way. Imagine being able to get more done in less time, without adding new software licenses, resources or staff.
By examining your
workflows and current toolsets,
43 North GIS can help you
get more out if the GIS software you have today. It can be as simple
as pointing out a new tool or capability that takes the place of
many, or it can be the automation of several repetitive tasks into a
single, more efficient workflow. We can also help you
develop a business case with a clear ROI to help grow and improve

Is your organization new to GIS?
It goes by many names; Geographic Information Systems, Location Intelligence, Spatial Information Systems, Neo-Geography, Spatially-Enabled Infrastructure, Location-Based Services, Web mapping and mashups, Geo-Enabled Enterprise...
Whatever your organization
chooses to call it, 43 North
GIS can help leverage the “where” that exists in your data
today. By combining it with the rich geographic information and
spatial reference data that is widely and readily available, your
organization can gain hidden insights into your customers and
assets. Our approach is to develop a clear, simple plan
that will show value quickly.

Do you need help and guidance in understanding new trends and technologies?
GIS technology does not exist in a vacuum. It can be a challenge for organizations to understand the complex way your GIS system can work with, and take advantage of new and emerging technologies such as web services, new web development APIs and approaches, cloud infrastructure, and even new versions of commercial and open source GIS tools.
As a trusted advisor, 43 North GIS can provide knowledge and training on these new technologies grounded in the context of your GIS activities. We can also help you develop a plan for a logical and feasible roadmap to bring new technology in house, and get the full benefit out of your investment.
Do you just need some help getting your GIS project off the ground?
Sometimes GIS organizations simply lack the internal resources or skill sets required to get a GIS project or application up and running. Other projects may have started strong, but have come off the rails due to shifting priorities, changing staff or scope adjustment.
