Mohawk Valley GIS Grows

Geospatial Technology Business Adds Two Full Time Employees

July 29, 2014 - Mohawk Valley GIS, a Herkimer-based technology business, has recently hired two full time employees and moved in to office space on North Main Street in the Village of Herkimer.

Started in 2003 when owner Linda Rockwood moved to the area, the company has offered computer mapping, training and programming services to municipalities, businesses and organizations throughout central New York.

“The timing was right to grow the business from a consultancy to bringing employees on board,” explained Ms. Rockwood. “I feel very fortunate to have found two talented, recent college graduates in the area.”

David Vail, a 2014 SUNY IT computer science graduate, joined Mohawk Valley GIS in May as a Systems Designer, after working as an intern since spring 2013. Francis Stripp, 2014 St. Lawrence University geology graduate, joined the company in June as a GIS Analyst and provides geographic information systems (GIS) and global positioning systems (GPS) expertise. They join Bré Baylor and Vickie Perry, who have been providing sales, marketing and social media support for the past year.

“With additional personnel, we can now meet the needs of more clients in the region,” added Ms. Rockwood.  “Besides mapping the distribution of customers to better target marketing efforts or performing combat zone analysis between a business and a competitor, we also create community maps for promotion and can help businesses convert their website to a mobile friendly site or get started with social media. These new services complement our established expertise in custom mobile app development for iOS and Android devices, interactive web maps for tourism and recreation promotion and all aspects of GIS and GPS data work, analysis, training and system development.”
