Clapsaddle-Garber Associates, Inc. (CGA) would like to announce a new partnership with RAGBRAI XLVIII.
RAGBRAI and CGA have partnered together to provide mapping and GIS services to thousands of cyclists that are expected to participate in the Register’s Annual Greatest Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) this summer.
According to their website, RAGBRAI is considered an “epic seven-day bicycling adventure that tests endurance, showcases community and builds lasting friendships”. One of RAGBRAI’s goals for 2021 is to improve mapping for the participants and make them more consistent and adaptable to things like a portable LED display at the information booth, on the event web pages, and the RAGBRAI mobile app. They have contracted with CGA and deemed them the “Official GIS Sponsor” to provide the work needed to make these maps as accurate as possible using the latest technology and efficiencies.
CGA added GIS to its wheelhouse of engineering and land surveying services in January 2020 and is looking forward to assisting RAGBRAI with their event. “GIS can enhance a participant’s experience at an event like RAGBRAI by simply integrating a few mapping features. We want to provide information to the cyclists in the most user-friendly ways so that they can easily access medical resources, general information, and other items of interest.” Stated Micah Cutler, GISP, GIS Director, CGA.
