Local Government

We deliver geospatial solutions focused on the needs of state, county, and municipal governments and affiliated agencies

With an extensive background in local government programs across the U.S., our highly trained professionals have vast experience with the specific challenges and pain points local governments face. We offer solutions that support a broad range of program requirements for environmental and regulatory compliance, utility and transportation infrastructure inspection and management, geographic data collection and asset management, legacy GIS data assessment, maintenance, and consulting, geospatial data collection and mapping, and numerous other local government program needs. We have referrals from hundreds of local government clients we have successfully supported.

We understand your needs

SAM knows local government budgets and budgeting processes, and we can meet their unique fiscal requirements. We also have a deep understanding of what local government agencies need for environmental compliance with regulators.

Some local governments have geospatial data that is many years old and has proven to be unreliable for forward planning. We know that many of them are working to handle rapid growth and the related challenges to infrastructure planning, and local governments don’t always have the bandwidth to successfully accomplish all their required tasks. SAM can provide both the expertise and support to develop, update, and maintain solutions, both now, and into the future.
