Geospatial Training Services develops user-friendly GIS web, mobile and desktop applications that make sharing, collecting and using information easier without requiring everyone to be GIS or database experts.  Our developers are experienced with the latest development technologies including:

  • JavaScript
  • ArcGIS Server and the JavaScript API
  • Dojo, jQuery, Node, Angular, Bootstrap, Backbone
  • Python
  • .NET with ArcObjects
  • Google Maps API, OpenLayers, CartoDB API

Spatial and Geostatistical Analysis

Geospatial Training Services implements GIS projects focused on spatial analysis and spatial statistical analysis.  Our spatial analysis services extend the basic set of discrete map features of points, lines and polygons to surfaces that represent continuous geographic space as a set of contiguous grid cells.  The consistency of this grid-based structuring provides a wealth of new analytical tools for characterizing “contextual spatial relationships”, such as effective distance, optimal paths, visual connectivity and micro-terrain analysis.

Spatial statistics extends traditional statistics through the analysis of geographic data via techniques that describe the distribution of data (descriptive spatial statistics), analysis of spatial patterns of data (spatial pattern analysis), identification and measurement of spatial relationships (spatial regression), and the creation of surface layers through sampled data (spatial interpolation).

We use spatial analysis and geostatistical tools from ArcGIS Desktop (Spatial Analyst and Geostatistical Toolbox), QGIS, CartoDB, Maptitude, R, Python, IDRISI, and others to perform analysis for natural resources, real estate, crime, health, and environmental applications.


Geospatial Training Services provides short-term consulting services for your project needs.  Gearing up to start and finish a GIS project can be a very expensive endeavor. Many organizations try, only to run into road blocks caused by schedules, budgets, or difficulties finding the right people. Geospatial Training Services can help with our flexible Rent-a-Tech service.

Whether you have a specific project or need on-call assistance, we can provide experienced GIS staff to perform a wide range of GIS related tasks (onsite or remotely) based on your specific needs and budget. This could be for a specific project or on an as-needed basis. Don’t have any GIS staff? Through this service, Geospatial Training Services can function as your organization’s GIS Department.

Our teams offers a variety of GIS expertise through combinations of skills, education, experience and credentials including:

  • GIS Technician (1 to 2 years GIS experience)
  • GIS Analyst (3 to 5 years GIS experience)
  • GIS Specialist (5 or more years experience)
  • GIS Application Developers/Programmers (10+ years experience)
  • GIS Professional or Instructor (10+ years experience with a professional certification)

Our technical expertise includes a wealth of experience with multiple platforms, programming languages, databases, and analyses. Whether you need expertise with commercial or open source products or would like to develop a desktop, mobile or web application we have the skills you are looking for. Here are a few of the technologies we commonly employ.

  • Application Development (JavaScript, Python, HTML 5, PHP, C#, .NET, ArcObjects, Visual, jQuery, Dojo)
  • ArcGIS Desktop
  • ArcGIS Server
  • ArcGIS Pro
  • QGIS
  • OpenGeo Suite
  • CartoDB

You can rent our GIS professionals by the day, week, or even month.

On-Site or Customized Training

Our trainers can come to you!  Geospatial Training Services provides on-site training for groups as well as customized training options.  For groups of 4 to 12 students we can teach any of our courses at your site for one low daily rate.  We provide the instructor, training materials, and even a mobile lab if you need us to supply the computers and software.  We can also build custom courses tailored to meet your needs.

OpenGeo Suite Implementation

Looking to cut your GIS software and implementation costs?  Geospatial Training Services can install, configure, and build web and mobile applications using the OpenGeo Suite.  Built on leading open source geospatial software including PostGIS, OpenLayers, GeoServer, and QGIS, OpenGeo Suite has a robust and flexible architecture that enables organizations to reliably manage and publish geospatial data.  We can also build your web and mobile GIS applications using JavaScript along with OpenLayers, Leaflet, and other technologies.
