These core competencies are augmented by our specialization in enterprise-level strategy design, spatial data infrastructures, system design and implementation, NSDI connectivity, and interoperable applications and Web services, which draw upon our unparalleled expertise in open standards and specification development and implementation for geospatial data (SDSFIE, GML), metadata (ISO-19115, FGDC CSDGM), and OpenGIS® Web services. Our staff is highly qualified in the following subject areas: e-Master Planning with integrated Web-mapping, Environmental and Natural Resource Management (Land Use Planning and Management, Forestry, Coastal and Freshwater Wetlands, Species and Habitat Modeling, Erosion and other Ecological modeling, Air Quality and Emission Inventories), Homeland Security, Defense and Intelligence, and Spatial Data Infrastructures.
