WHO WE ARE

Geospatial Technical Solutions LLC (GTS) is a company that is science based, technology enabled, and decision focused.  It was established in 2019 by Dr. Tom Mueller, a GIS Expert, Scientist, & Agronomist.  Tom was on the faculty at the University of Kentucky for 14 years until he left to work for John Deere in 2013.  Throughout his career, Tom became more and more concerned that much of the publicly available geospatial information has been greatly underutilized for decision making in areas including agricultural, land use, commercial development, and market analysis.  The main barriers have been that GIS software and staff are expensive and the finding, manipulating, processing, transforming, and analyzing this data is very time consuming.  GTS has made it our mission to automate these GIS workflows and display results on the web in 2D and 3D so that geospatial data is easily accessible to everyone who needs it.
