Williamson Consulting provides custom spatial data mapping/plotting,
digitizing, analysis, management and conversion for forest land managers,
private landowners, corporations and government agencies. We employ and develop
the latest technologies of ArcInfo and ArcView
to provide clients with the best possible product. GIS (Geographic Information
Systems) technologies and products are not just for forestlands and forestland
managers. Approximately 80% of all information has a geographic component. GIS
databases are being continually developed by many entities. All levels of
government are getting involved in GIS and many will be providing access to
public information by way of GIS. Applications can be found in the areas of
public and private utilities (water, sewer, septic, electrical etc.), city
parks, mining claims, private urban and rural lands just to name a few. RIGHT
