Partnership | Survey Grade Accuracy | Our Company | History
At GIS Midwest, we believe that our relationship with our clients needs to be beneficial for both parties. For this reason, we offer our
clients a contract for monthly GIS mapping services that can be cancelled or terminated by either party at any time. We do not believe
in making our clients commit to signing a multi-year, multi-hundred thousand-dollar contract in order to implement a GIS mapping system.
Our policy is to have a mutually beneficial relationship with our clients so that we are able to provide our client with GIS mapping services,
but only to the degree that they want and need. Our clients remain in the “driver's seat” of this partnership.
GIS Midwest has observed that GIS mapping sells itself. Once your county experiences the convenience of having so much information at
your fingertips, you will view GIS mapping the same way we do - as a functional and wise investment.
Survey Grade Accuracy
GIS Midwest's work with GIS has invariably led to questions about section corner locations and accuracy. GIS Midwest employs three full
time Licensed Professional Land Surveyors. This has been a large asset for our company because when building our GIS maps, we are able
to physically and personally verify the locations of the section corners that are reflected in our GIS maps.
GIS Midwest has always believed that Licensed Professional Surveyors should be at the heart of GIS mapping. Because GIS Midwest is a
local business, we have the capability of going out into the field to personally verify the exact placement of section corners to be tied into
your GIS map. It takes many years to master the proper placement of section corners, and GIS Midwest's Licensed Professional Surveyors
are skilled professionals that have been trained to deal with every situation or problem involving section corner placement and remonumentation.
To attempt GIS mapping without a Licensed Professional Surveyor involved is very unwise. Too many GIS maps have already been constructed
without any input from the local land surveying professionals. GIS Midwest is committed to involving local land surveyors in the process
of constructing your county's new GIS map.

In 2003, GIS Midwest implemented the Kandiyohi County Geographic Information System (GIS),
which is an Internet-based mapping system that is built upon Kandiyohi County's 2,750 section corner locations and other county information.
The Kandiyohi County GIS contains Kandiyohi County's 28,000± land parcels, along with section corners, zoning maps, road names, address
ranges, lakes, railroads, section lines, aerial photographs, ditch maps, voter districts and school districts. The Kandiyohi County GIS can be viewed at: http://gis.co.kandiyohi.mn.us.
