Iowa-based ProMap joined Schneider Corporation to form a provider of GIS, engineering and land surveying services.

On May 1, two of the Midwest's providers of GIS (Geographic Information System) services for land development clients joined forces. Ames, Iowa-based ProMap's world-class technology and experienced development team joined Schneider Corporation to form one of the leading GIS, engineering and land surveying service providers in a 15-state region.

Schneider looks to increase its scope and capabilities by combining two of the largest GIS web-hosting services in the country, which will allow Schneider to accelerate the use of GIS for both Schneider and ProMap clients.

The combined resources of the two companies will strengthen The Schneider Corporation's strong pattern of growth. Both Bob Mortensen, CEO, and Tim Shuck, president of ProMap, will continue to play key roles in the ProMap division of Schneider.

Founded in 1962 and headquartered in Indianapolis, The Schneider Corporation has four offices and more than 300 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.
