I often get phone calls which start like this: “We need an application built which does X”. Do you know my next question?
On the surface that would seem like an odd response. But think about it, the caller has a problem and yet the conversation starts with the technology. This is not the fault of the caller. But without understanding the problem the caller is trying to solve, how can we build out a solution. In this blog post I will share our approach to solving problems with GIS. We have developed a step by step process we use with those both new to GIS and experienced GIS users and organizations. Less an advertisement for what we do, more for you to think about how you might better solve organizational problems with GIS.
Getting the most out of GIS requires careful planning and thought. Below we discuss our systematic approach to solving problems using GIS.
