GIS services include the development of new geospatial data, as well as updating and integrating existing geospatial information, by utilizing resources such as aerial photography, engineering plans, and data collected through GPS. By investing in a GIS for your organization, elected officials, managers, staff, and the public can easily access information to make better informed decisions and manage a wide variety of assets. Maps and data are part of today’s essential infrastructure.
Micah Cutler, GISP
CGA is now offering GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Services to clients with the addition of Micah Cutler, GIS Director.
CGA has been in the civil engineering and land surveying business since 1959 so they’re no stranger to offering professional services across Iowa, but GIS services will be new to them. Micah Cutler, who has been working in the GIS profession for over 20 years, started at CGA in January as GIS Director. Cutler spent 13 years with Hardin County as their GIS Coordinator and then their IT/GIS Director. She has assisted numerous Iowa municipalities and non-profit organizations to fully utilize their GIS resources, along with her extensive county government experience. With the addition of Cutler, CGA will be well-positioned to hit the ground running in 2020 with any clients wishing to add GIS services to current CGA projects or start a new mapping project.
