GIS Application Development

GIS is a powerful tool for mapping, analyzing and reporting on your data. However, the real power of GIS is in the applications that you can wrap around the platform to bring value to your operation.  Our developer staff has expertise in all areas of ESRI products, specializing in developing tools to ensure that you get the most from your investment.  Our staff understand the need to integrate the client’s short-term and long-term applications objectives. Our goal is to give our clients the tools to operate with efficiency, without the need to have high level GIS expertise on staff.

Example of Custom Applications:

  • Custom conversion models support by ESRI InterOp Extension, with an intuitive user interface
  • Automation of merging dissimilar datasets to a common data model, such as standardizing parcel data from multiple sources.
  • Automated data update services
  • Internet or Intranet Web enabled mapping services


Applications can be developed on a number of industry standard platforms ArcObjects and .NET.

Building your GIS

Customized to your specific needs

In collaboration with our client, a needs assessment is conducted to find out what you want your GIS to do. We talk with all the people who will manage and operate your network and those who have a need to use the information. From this fact finding, the necessary GIS tasks are decided along with a list of data requirements. NewCom can  identify source of  all the available GIS data, such as county datasets and tax assessor data, on which to base your GIS. If no dataset exists, it can be created. 

Next, an evaluation of the legacy data about your facilities and municipal assets — maps and CAD files, paper records, computer files — is performed. After analysis of the needs assessment and legacy data, you are given a quote for the basic system.
