Strategic Geospatial Planning is an important, but often overlooked, aspect of an organization’s operations. Strategic planning ensures that operations and policies are aligned to meet current and future needs. Such planning can include developing strategies and policies with regard to hiring and skills development, technology integration, application development, data sharing, standards, and more. NLT is experienced in identifying key opportunities for improving efficiency, capability, and outcomes through strategic planning to ensure Geospatial goals are realized.
Needs Assessment & Requirements Gathering
Needs assessment & requirements gathering involves closely examining an organization’s needs, capabilities, and operations in order to design, implement, and improve Geographic Information Systems and capacity. Synthesis of this information enables organizations to take advantage of key human and technological assets while improving deficiencies. NLT is highly experienced in conducting such assessments quickly and economically to aid organizations in building and implementing sustainable solutions.

The proliferation of web services is changing the way in which spatial information can be consumed and applied. NLT is experienced with all aspects of a web services life cycle from development and deployment to maintenance, tuning, and upgrade. There are a number of attractive new alternatives available for creating map and data services online. NLT also provides organizations technical integration services for handling inconsistencies between data services to ensure analytical integrity. Contact NLT to discuss your web services needs.
Perhaps the most significant technological development in recent years has been the advancement of mobile computing devices, which has revolutionized Geo-data collection, mapping, and location-based capabilities. NLT has been a leader in the development and implementation of mobile computing solutions such as in-vehicle mounted systems, touch enabled software applications, and field data collection tools. Contact NLT to discuss your mobile services needs.
As more data becomes available within organizations that inform decisions and improve internal processes, the utility of Business Intelligence (BI) solutions rises. NLT offers services collecting, organizing, and presenting business data through unique capability ‘Geo-enabling’ and integrating spatial data, maps, and GIS into BI systems. Contact NLT to discuss how to implement or enhance Business Intelligence for your organization.
The success and longevity of an application or system is often dependent on the speed with which it performs important functions or returns user requests. Nowhere is this more evident than within modern web-based mapping applications. NLT is highly experienced with identifying performance bottlenecks and developing rapid data retrieval strategies and application designs for any computing environment. Contact NLT to discuss how we can help optimize application performance for you.
