Fender.Cars

Sometimes you are in the right place at the right time and you meet some innovative people who are doing things a new way.  GeoVelo is excited to welcome our newest business intelligence client Fender.cars.  For several months now GeoVelo has been working with Adam Sharp, the CEO and majority owner, of Fender.Cars to demonstrate how geospatial technology and analytics can provide a hot ROI to his business.  Fender.Cars, like many nationwide ventures has a complex geographic business puzzle on its hands.  Without penetrating insights into the geographic distribution of Fender’s cash flow, customers, clients, and marketing efforts Fender.Cars would only get half the picture its spreadsheets and earnings reports offer. At GeoVelo, we live to solve these problems. To provide that promised ROI, GeoVelo is becoming increasingly integral to Fender.Cars.  We develop their geographic data sets.

GeoVelo: Big in China

Not really.  Let me explain.  Like I have noted in the past, the www.GeoVelo.org website has been mostly dormant since its inception. However, a few weeks ago I committed to making a sustained effort to communicate with our clients via this website and the GeoVelo Facebook page. Conventional wisdom says I am supposed to use lots of key words like GIS, HIPAA, Business Intelligence, Tableau, Hospital Patient Data, and Analytics. Did the prior sentence come across like the crass exploitation of a hard working SEO algorithm that it was meant as?  I hope so. Anyway, you my eleven dear readers are in for a show.

The Internet is forever. Now, on to this China* business. As Read More …

Things are moving fast at GeoVelo

If you have ever visited this website you surely noticed very little ever changes here.  The reason for that is simple.  I have been too darn busy working on client projects to keep the page up. When you run a small business there are hundreds of things constantly vying for your attention.  The most important of them is delivering what you promised to your clients and delivering it on or before the date it is due. Websites are easily neglected.  No more.

States Streamline Public Health with GIS

CWD:  Writing an article about GIS and Public Health without including several maps is a difficult task.  Its painting word pictures of something who’s magic can only be experienced by sight and with ample time to ponder the relationships the maps reveal. While the article links to a few maps, most of the links are to top level domains.  If you are curious about how your data might appear, and the insights you might gain from a GIS approach, all you have to do is contact us at GeoVelo. Mapping technology is helping local governments better visualize data and effectively tackle local health issues. by Juliet Van Wagenen – Juliet is the senior web editor for StateTech and HealthTech magazines. In her six years as a journalist she has covered everything from aerospace to indie music reviews — but she is unfailingly partial to covering technology. New mapping software could be Read More …
