3001 Inc., the geospatial company, announced that corporate headquarters are being relocated to the Washington, D.C. area. The decision to locate 3001's executive staff in the DC area is a key component of the corporate strategic plan and part of the new vision for the company since the October 2004 recapitalization. Last October, a new Board of Directors was established, which set out the plans for extending the successful 3001 geospatial practice across the U.S., including plans for the relocation of the corporate office to the DC-metro area.

In addition to establishing a Washington office, 3001 is responding to a dynamic growth situation by expanding flight operations, rolling out a new benefits package, hiring top-notch individuals in a variety of positions across the country, and further investing in geospatial research and development.

Clients can continue to expect high quality, first-time-right deliverables and still rely on 3001 for one-stop shopping geospatial services from data acquisition, processing and analysis to application development.

3001's clients include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the Navy, FEMA, NOAA, the Department of Defense, and a large assemblage of state and local agencies. In addition to performing satellite image processing, 3001 also acquires its own LiDAR and digital aerial photography for a variety of defense and environmental applications. 3001 develops digital aeronautical and water navigation charts, performs shoreline mapping, creates ArcObjects applications for ruggedized pocket PCs, and builds high-accuracy digital terrain models, amongst a variety of other production and development activities.
