Horner & Shifrin, Inc. Celebrates GIS Day

Horner & Shifrin, Inc. will celebrate GIS Day on Wednesday, November 15, 2017. Horner & Shifrin, Inc. has shown innovative application of technology, data collection, geospatial information visualization, and thought leadership through geographic information system (GIS) technology.

Over 17 years ago, consumer advocate Ralph Nader presented an idea to Esri founder and president Jack Dangermond: dedicate one day to show how geographic intelligence touches everyone. That led to the establishment of GIS Day, which was first observed in 1999. The explosion of geospatial technology since then has expanded that idea into a global event that demonstrates how far GIS extends into people’s lives, and a forum for users to showcase their unique GIS accomplishments.

Horner & Shifrin, Inc. provides GIS services for many public and private clients and our capabilities with GIS continue to grow. We have the ability to develop, implement, and customize a comprehensive GIS with a focus on web hosting, management of asset data, public involvement, operations, and historical data. Using cloud-based GIS services, LiDAR, and other methods, our clients’ assets are more easily accessible. Our GIS and asset management platforms are customized to each client to make their data easy to review and interpret, as well as show the relationships between their data and location.

“GIS benefits organizations of all sizes and in almost every industry. The most exciting aspect of our services is the transformative benefits from cost savings, better decision making, improved communication, improved recordkeeping, temporal comparison, and forecasting our clients recognize by deploying GIS throughout their organization.” Jeff Stahlhuth, Geomatics Practice Leader

This November, Horner & Shifrin, Inc. will join hundreds of organizations across the world in celebrations that will serve to ignite the imagination of the future geospatial innovators who will move the planet forward using GIS.

“This is an amazing event where all our users around the world get together to appreciate each other’s work, whether it’s jumping to action as first responders in flood zones and wildfires, or finding the best place to open a new business,” said Dangermond. “We should be proud of the achievements our users make in the field of GIS, and this is a way to celebrate that. So thank you for all your work.”
