Strategic GIS Startup Planning

Overview of Our Strategic GIS Startup Planning Services

The GPC Group developed strategic GIS inception plans to provide structured focus from the very start of the GIS implementation process and ensure that initial efforts are immediately effective, while remaining flexible and extensible to meet future needs.

Limited time and resources often demand that GIS implementation be carefully and strategically staged around an organization’s current needs, priorities and resource limitations. Carefully focused system and database implementation can ensure that initial efforts are immediately effective, while remaining flexible and extensible to meet future needs.

A Strategic GIS inception plan can provide structured focus from the very start of the GIS implementation process. Such a plan can help a local or regional agency or private company to leverage current resources in a way that can yield both short term and long term benefits, maximize investment and provide tangible benefits in a short period of time. The Inception Planning phase is often carried out to establish the focus, direction and resources for carrying out a full System Design and Implementation Plan in subsequent steps. It may also be used for internal budgeting purposes or for pursuing external funding.
