Indianapolis, IN - Effective June 22nd, two of the Midwest's leading providers of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) services for land development became one. Schneider is officially retiring the ProMap name and is merging the two companies completely under one brand, The Schneider Corporation.

Since May of last year, several changes have taken place at the two firms: An Iowa-based client services facility was created, GIS production was centralized to assure efficiency and monitor quality, research and development was combined to improve desktop and web-based products, and staff experience and technology infrastructure was enhanced to meet the current and future needs of clients

.According to Ed Jolliffe, president of The Schneider Corporation, "This move enables us to leverage the strong Schneider brand and positions us to offer a broader range of services and products. It makes us better able to serve the long-term needs of our GIS clients throughout the Midwest and beyond."

Founded in 1962 and headquartered in Indianapolis, The Schneider Corporation has eight offices and 350 professionals serving a range of clients throughout the Midwest. Schneider applies professional expertise and sophisticated technology in the areas of Engineering, Land Surveying, and GIS services to collect, create, and manage the geospatial information that supports its clients' growth. Founded in 1991 to help local government utilize GIS, ProMap is a leading provider of comprehensive GIS applications for clients throughout the Midwest and the nation.

GIS (Geographic Information System) is a computerized tool for mapping and analyzing events, predicting outcomes, and forming strategies. GIS takes data from databases and spreadsheets and puts them on a map as layers of information, allowing users to visualize information and highlighting data for better analysis. GIS is used worldwide in government, education, and industries, such as: health care, agriculture, transportation, real estate, banking, marketing, and more.
