Former Texas GIO, Jim Scott, Joins Boston-based Applied Geographics

Applied Geographics, Inc. (AppGeo) has hired Jim Scott, former State of Texas’ Geographic Information Officer, as Director of Texas Operations. With over 20 years of experience with geospatial and remote sensing technologies, Jim will build AppGeo’s newest Geospatial Services and Technology Development Center in Austin, TX.

“Jim is an innovator and leader on geospatial IT matters, nationally,” said Rich Grady, AppGeo President. “With his leadership, we look forward to extending our customer-focused geospatial services in Texas and the southern and western US.”

“From our base of operations in Texas’ technology center of Austin, I’ll look forward to connecting directly with folks across the state in coming months,” said Scott.

“Joining AppGeo is a special opportunity for me because of their combined commitment to customer service, innovation, and open-minded thinking,” said Jim Scott. “The fact that they serve a wide range of clients across commercial sectors and all levels of government keeps things interesting. Bringing location and geographic relevance directly to citizens and customers is where the greatest needs and demands are.”
