We provide integrated resources you can draw on when you want to and for as long as you need to.
How We Do What We Do
It all starts with us listening to and understanding your organizations needs. Regardless of project scope or scale we work as a partner to provide the best geospatial information, analysis and data production services possible. From engagement through implementation, you can be confident that proven geospatial knowledge, methodologies, and expertise are being employed.
Geospatial Data Creation
If your business leverages any kind of analysis and is impacted by location, nothing is more important to you than data. But what if you don’t have the data you need today? We have over 25 years of spatial data production experience with a keen understanding of detail, accuracy, coordinate systems, scanning, R2V, feature collection and edit, data storage formats and quality assurance. We’re acutely aware of your need to have things delivered on schedule and within budget and we’ll be with you every step of the way.
Over the years our team members have supported large government agencies that include FEMA, NGA, USGS and NRCS as well as many private companies all engaged in exploiting geospatial data.
Things change all the time and that includes features on the ground. Infrastructure assets, building footprints, property lines, hydrography, demographics, crime statistics and socio-economic indicators change constantly relative to their geography on the earth. Our analysts are skilled at quickly discovering, assessing and updating those changes keeping your geospatial data up to date. Whether you need to revise your base maps, edit hydro geometries, update structures or incorporate new demographic data into your spatial framework keeping that data current saves time, money and even lives.
Utilizing a range of imagery and sensor sources our experts can quickly and correctly update vector geometries and feature attributes to reflect what is on the ground now, not what was there weeks, months or even years ago.
Quality is directly proportional to the value of your data but how do you measure and manage its intangible properties like completeness and consistency? We work with you guaranteeing our products and services adhere strictly to your quality standards. Every step in our process has corresponding quality metrics and guidelines used to facilitate accurate collection, revision and analysis of geospatial data. We leverage the inherent quality control mechanisms in our software, create and utilize additional error trapping and reporting processing layers and leverage best practices from ISO compliant quality standards and initiatives.
Regardless of the scope and scale of your project, delivering quality service throughout is our biggest priority. Comprehensive quality systems oversee on time, first time right deliveries…every time.
All data has value, strengths and weaknesses. Your data when merged with existing public, private or newly created information is powerful. Our team understands the challenges that arise when bringing often diverse and disparate data types together. Factors that need be considered and fully understood allowing users to maximize data usefulness include format, unique attributes, metadata, structure, quality and schema. We have the requisite skills needed to prospect for, discover, acquire and integrate a wide range of information from public and private data stores. Once identified we create, collect, validate and integrate those features into your data holdings. The net result is more comprehensive, intelligent and valuable information in a unified data system.
Traditional big data analytics don’t provide the full perspective or complete picture needed to solve complex problems. Understanding the data in the context of place can shed new light on old problems. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and geospatial analysis provide a diverse set of tools that better visualize spatial and non-spatial data and can expose as yet unseen factors. Our team consists of geographers, geospatial engineers, scientists and demographers who can leverage and exploit geospatial technologies using available commercial and proprietary technologies.

Day1Geospatial™ Service Support
Do you know how much it costs your company when you lose a great geospatial technician or analyst? We’ve all been there. Things are going great, your projects are on schedule and life is good. Then it happens. One of your best and brightest is leaving and you need to find a new technician or analyst…fast.
There are dozens of firms offering great GIS candidates for you to search through, interview, vet , offer, counter-offer, negotiate and finally hire. But while all that is happening your project is getting off schedule, that stellar on-time delivery record is in jeopardy and your staff is overworked picking up the slack. There has to be a better way to deal with something that happens every day.
Project managers hate losing quality employees but when you ask them what are the costs associated with that loss it’s largely unclear. In speaking with geospatial data producers we’ve found that the typical onboarding process associated with hiring skilled or even not so skilled candidates can take 4-6 weeks. Then take into consideration the position will likely be filled with either a new or recent GIS graduate needing extensive training and supervision, estimates that were in weeks now have jumped to months before you can expect to see the new hire fully productive.
Day1Geospatial™ is a service created to take the stress out of employee turnover in the specialized geospatial data and product creation market. Our team has been providing map support services to government and the private sector for years and is expert in all the leading GIS technologies. In addition to understanding the how-to we also understand the what, when and why associated with creating and delivering quality geospatial data.
How Does Day1Geospatial™ Work?
We’ve made lowered productivity, overworked staff, lost knowledge and slipping schedules a thing of the past, at least while you recruit, interview, hire and train new employees.
