Creative Map Solutions, LLC Offers Custom Training for Global Mapper Software

April, 20 2016

Firestone, CO- Creative Map Solutions, LLC (CMS) announced today that it is offering custom online and in-house training services for Global Mapper software. Developed by Blue Marble Geographics, Global Mapper is the “Swiss army knife” of GIS applications, enabling users to import and export a wide variety of spatial related file formats. The strength of the software lies in the ability to perform data conversion, file-to-file format translation, and GIS analysis at an affordable price.

"Global Mapper training is catered to an individual or company’s specific needs and workflows, not just simply a 'canned' session where my clients learn about features of the application that do not apply to their industry" said Scott Carter, Owner of CMS. "At CMS, our core business revolves around the conversion of various datasets into different GIS and CAD related software applications, so we literally use Global Mapper on a daily basis".

Scott Carter at CMS has been using Global Mapper for over 14 years and has over 21 years of GIS and data conversion experience. He has worked with companies on GIS related projects in a wide variety of industries including oil and gas, mining, surveying, and engineering. Mr. Carter's vast experience with different industries, disciplines, and software applications allows his company to maximize workflows between Global Mapper and existing CAD and GIS software applications.

ASTER Data Available at No Charge

On April 1, 2016, NASA's Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) began distributing ASTER Level 1 Precision Terrain Corrected Registered At-Sensor Radiance (AST_L1T) data products over the entire globe at no charge. Global distribution of these data at no charge is a result of a policy change made by NASA and Japan.

The AST_L1T product provides a quick turn-around of consistent GIS-ready data as a multi-file product, which includes a HDF-EOS data file, full-resolution composite images (FRI) as GeoTIFFs for tasked telescopes (e.g., VNIR/SWIR and TIR ), and associated metadata files. In addition, each AST_L1T granule contains related products including low-resolution browse and, when applicable, a Quality Assurance (QA) browse and QA text report.

More than 2.95 million scenes of archived data are now available for direct download through the LP DAAC Data Pool and for search and download through NASA's Earthdata Search Client and also through USGS' GloVis , and USGS' EarthExplorer . New scenes will be added as they are acquired and archived.

ASTER is a partnership between NASA, Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan, and Japan Space Systems (J-spacesystems ).

Visit the LP DAAC ASTER Policy Change Page to learn more about ASTER. Subscribe to the LP DAAC listserv for future announcements.

Assisting With Your Mapping Needs

  creative maps strongman
 

HELPING LIFT YOUR BUSINESS TO HIGHER GROUND!

Finding a mapping consultant to assist you with spatially-related projects can be a daunting task. Not only must you find a company that has intimate knowledge of mapping and Geographic Information Systems, but you also need a company with industry experience as well.

OUR AMAZING FEATS OF STRENGTH:

1.) Experience- Creative Map Solutions has over 20 years of experience in offering GIS and Mapping Solutions. In addition, we have provided mapping related solutions to over 3,000 private and government entities, in many different industries, including oil and gas, environmental engineering/litigation, mining, and government entities. Our experience in working in a diverse range of industries gives us a competitive edge over other firms because we understand the applications and usage of spatial information within those industries. We have also developed processes and procedures that are typically 2-3 times faster than other geospatial firms, saving you time and money.

2.) Affordable- Our hourly bill rate for GIS consulting and Mapping is between $35-$75 per hour, with the majority of our projects being billed at $50 per hour. On average it will cost a company $62.50 per hour for a full time employee with 5 to 10 years of experience in GIS. Of course these numbers do not include the hardware and software needs that you would have to invest in for that employee, and it also doesn't take in consideration for company "down time". That is why it makes sense to outsource your GIS and mapping projects on an "as-needed" basis, to an expert consultant, at a rate that is affordable.

3.) All-Inclusive- Creative Map Solutions offers a full gamut of products and services related to mapping. We have an extensive library of geospatial data in-house, which makes it quicker and easier to provide solutions without having to look for outside data sources. We have also established partnerships in the GIS industry with companies that provide geospatial data. So if we don't have the information that you are looking for in-house, we know where to get it from.

4.) Diversity- Creative Map Solutions has a nice blend of technical and graphic design experience. So whether you are looking for us to perform complex data conversion or GIS analytical projects, or to provide custom map graphics for presentation and web purposes, we've got you covered.

5.) Responsive- Creative Map Solutions' core belief is in good customer service. We typically respond to inquiries in hours, not days. Creative Map Solutions understands that our customers need information, and they need it fast. It has always been our goal to provide the best solutions to our customers in a timely manner.
