GIS Associates was incorporated in 2000 by Suzanne Roulston-Doty and Rich Doty, both of whom had already established reputations for their expertise and integrity dating back to their work at the University of Florida’s GeoPlan Center, and then later with GeoFocus, a technology transfer company partly owned by the University of Florida, IBM and Jack Dangermond. Since establishing GIS Associates, they have expanded their client base and areas of expertise, and built many long-standing client relationships by guiding clients to more effective and efficient utilizations of GIS within their organizations.
