What We Do
Our Core Services

GIS Federal is a cohesive, knowledgeable team that strives to establish a professionally rewarding relationship with our customers and teammates so as to achieve effective solutions for difficult technological challenges in computer programming, big data, software engineering, analytics and visualization tools. We have a proven track record that demonstrates our successes to this end, including the application of patented GIS Federal technology, which enables processing at the fastest speed in the industry, along with the accompanying displays for the retrieval of big data queries.


GIS Federal is a leader in the field of indexing, retrieving and displaying geospatial data through its unparalleled visualization tools which render information in an extremely useful fashion for analysts and decision makers. Our technology acts as a fundamental Geographic Information System processing and visualization platform in large scale cloud computing environments.


Understanding what will or could happen next dictates key decisions that could affect the success or failure or an organization. Through predictive analysis and machine learning, you can increase your ability to manage this process proactively. We can analyze your data to expose key patterns that predict future outcomes. Our predictive tools provide you the likely range of outcomes and the key drivers of these outcomes irrespective of the organization’s type.


GIS Federal can help you put your data to work. Given the unprecedented number of data sources, the exponential increase in the rate of data is likely to continue to grow for the foreseeable future. GIS Federal can align these data through a harmonization process and then apply the latest data mining techniques to extract value from them in the form of meaningful relationships and patterns, thus putting your data to work for you.


Presenting the results of analytics is clearly as important as finding the right answer. GIS Federal can develop high quality visual displays of information to help users obtain the maximum amount of data available and present it in a manner that can be readily understood. These displays are not only beautiful, but they also deliver complex results flexibly, intuitively and interactively, thereby facilitating analyses. The distributed hardware accelerated WMS visualization service offered through our GAIA product has solved some of the most intense real-time big data visualization challenges to date.


GIS Federal’s global tracking solutions can fuse real-time and historical data from numerous sources to track moving entities across land, sea and air. Our advanced prediction algorithms can forecast entities’ future behavior and raise alerts about unusual activity.


GIS Federal offers cyber security and Information assurance (IA) solutions to secure enterprise systems and networks. We have expertise in configuring, deploying security architectures and protecting IT designs based on assessments of our customers' current and future IT needs, mission objectives and regulatory requirements. In connection with implementing tailored architectures, we help define and implement IA policies, procedures, and guidelines to ensure effective future IT planning. We also identify potential threats and vulnerabilities, design and implement corrective action plans that employ advanced technologies such as encryption, digital signatures, and firewalls, using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) as well as custom-made security and software solutions.


GIS Federal offers a full lifecycle of network engineering services to our customers from the initial requirements analysis and network design through solutions implementation and testing, to include designing disaster recovery contingency plans. Our network engineering capabilities include architecture development, design, implementation, configuration, and operation of Local Area Networks (LANs), Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs), and Wide Area Networks (WANs). Our extensive experience providing network engineering services for our customers allows us to rapidly identify potential bottlenecks, security threats and vulnerabilities, as well as address these potential issues with cost-effective solutions.
