The staff at Bluewater Geospatial is highly skilled at automating the creation geographic datasets from a variety of sources.

With fluency in the many languages of the new "geo web", Bluewater Geospatial can help migrate your geographic data to the Web 2.0 world. Through the conversion of legacy data to XML and JSON-based encodings, your data can find new life on the web and be readily accessed by a new generation of users.
Bluewater Geospatial specializes in the design and implementation of Open Source spatial databases such as PostgreSQL/PostGIS. Such databases allow for a robust and scalable solution without the hassle and expense of a traditional commercially-licensed product.
Although very often overlooked as part of the data creation process, metadata is crucial to ensure the downstream utility of the dataset. At Bluewater Geospatial, we can provide support at all stages of the metadata life cycle, from automated metadata generation to customized metadata portal creation.
