Vermont hires Applied Geographics, Inc. for Custom GIS Web Application Development

May 3, 2006 -- BOSTON –The State of Vermont has hired Applied Geographics, Inc. (AppGeo) to develop a custom Web-based GIS application designed to assist businesses interested in locating in Vermont.

The application will seamlessly integrate with the Department of Economic Development’s website and provide a convenient way for businesses to look for available sites that meet their needs.

“The Department understands that we must be on the cutting edge when it comes to helping companies looking for a place to do business in Vermont,” said Vermont Commissioner of Economic Development Mike Quinn. “Businesses as well as consumers expect to be able to easily access information on the Web, and AppGeo’s product will allow them to do that.”

The Web site will make it easy to query and view properties by site characteristics, and to review local demographic and business information within a user defined distance from the selected property.

The Website also will enable registered users within the real estate community the ability to securely submit new properties and participate in the updating and maintenance of the listings.

“Current technology allows businesses to gain a detailed preview of prospective sites for development from their own desktops” said Michael Terner, Executive Vice President of AppGeo. “This site will allow the state to show available property in Vermont to the business community with the added benefit of presenting the properties in their natural resource, infrastructure and demographic contexts.”
