R&D Center



As a team we design and develop cutting edge web applications that make geographic information accessible, informative, and engaging.

Our work is publicly deployed across national and multinational organizations to link together GIS professionals with citizens and domain experts. Because of this, we are deeply concerned with the usability as much as the capability of our projects in open data sharing, cartographic visualization, and community collaboration.

In addition the R&D team is actively involved in new technologies for big, realtime data analytics, opening our geospatial platform to developers via API's and example applications, and working with the Esri StoryMaps team to make it easy for people to share their narratives with others through maps.
