Lakewood, OH (November 26, 2010) – Dempsey Surveying Company, headquartered in Lakewood Ohio, is one of the many land surveying firms managing to ride the wave of the lingering economic downturn.
Despite the challenges in today’s economy, Dempsey Surveying is still committed to keeping up with the latest technology to complete work accurately and efficiently, while keeping cost and overhead low.
The company recently launched two social networking profiles on Twitter (http://twitter.com/dempseysurvey) and Facebook. In addition to creating an expanded online presence, Dempsey Surveying is diversifying its professional services. Dempsey’s team of surveyors, engineers and Geographical Information System (GIS) professionals are now offering geospatial services including GIS mapping, database design and three-dimensional digital surface model Triangular Irregular Networks (TINs).
With local governments and private agencies downsizing and cutting expenditures, outsourcing GIS and mapping, including data maintenance, is critical. For example, hiring a full time, college educated GIS professional is an expensive investment after adding even a minimal benefits package. According to PayScale.com, a full-time GIS manager can require a salary ranging from $54,964 – $79,006, plus benefits, profit sharing and year end bonuses. According to ESRI, a major GIS software provider, local governments around the world—from the 200 largest cities in the United States to hundreds of smaller local governments—use GIS This is unrealistic for many local government agencies including counties, cities, towns, villages and townships. Existing GIS personnel resources are limited and the workloads continue to increase with demand from internal departments and community data. Advanced geospatial requests from architects, municipalities, contractors, excavators and private individuals exceed the capability of an entry level entry-level GIS technician.
