AJD Geospatial Concepts was established in 2012 to provide cost-effective and customized GIS solutions to public and private sector organizations for both long-term and short-term projects. In the time since AJD Geospatial Concepts was established, the need for and use of GIS and Mapping Services has significantly increased. However, many firms and organizations have found it challenging to meet this increasing need for GIS capabilities due to limited internal resources. That’s where AJD Geospatial Concepts comes in.
Our goal is to provide the skills and expertise of a GIS Specialist to an organization to satisfy their GIS demands in a professional, yet economic manner. With the customer’s needs paramount to the success of this partnership, AJD Geospatial Concepts specializes in complete GIS project management; from the initial steps in organizing the project to obtaining and creating new data, integrating it with existing data, analyzing, extracting and managing the data, to providing customized end solutions for the client.
At AJD Geospatial Concepts, we specialize in the organization, analysis, and mapping of geospatial data for regional planning; transportation management; wetland and floodplain analysis; utility and energy management; 3D and topographic analysis; and real estate and property management.
