Timmons Group Selected by United States Coast Guard to Support Enterprise Geospatial Architecture Development

Richmond, Va. – January 24, 2012 – Timmons Group, a leader in geospatial consulting and applications development, was recently selected by the United States Coast Guard (USCG) to design a Common Geospatial Information System (GIS) Framework. The intent is to develop a highly scalable GIS enterprise architecture framework that will satisfy the Coast Guard’s functional and geospatial needs in support of a common operational GIS framework. The framework is intended to leverage the Microsoft Silverlight Applications Programming Interface (API) within the Esri ArcGIS platform environment.

The project will involve extensive strategic planning services and analysis for the GIS framework. Tasks involve determining current and future business driven spatial information requirements, research and identification of best practices, and developing recommendations for spatial information focused on processes, policies, procedures, access, security, maintenance and archiving. The tasks will ultimately document gaps and leverage best practices in developing a roadmap for future framework capabilities.

Following the Strategic Plan, Timmons Group will develop an Implementation Guide which will document all aspects of the architecture including data formats, network design considerations, framework and application performance factors, development methodology and testing strategies. This guide will provide tactical plans for the enterprise GIS program that will accompany the higher level strategic plan.

“We are extremely proud to partner with the USCG on this project. They have critical needs for highly integrated spatial information and robust decision support tools for important mission tasks including search and rescue operations and planning,” said Lowell Ballard, Director of Geospatial Solutions for Timmons Group. “The Coast Guard has a great vision for the future and we looking forward to helping them achieve their near- and long-term goals.”
