Carpe Geo is a philosophy developed by Bill Johnson (AppGeo’s Carpe Geo Evangelist) based on his many years as a GIS professional and leader. Carpe Geo focuses on building trust through collaboration. On effecting fundamental change through thoughtful investment. And on consistent attention to excellence. A complete overview of the philosophy and links to Carpe Geo materials are here.
For AppGeo, Carpe Geo serves as a guide to challenging conventional thinking about GIS. The Carpe Geo philosophy calls us to question traditional assumptions about how to solve customer problems using GIS. To explore alternative technologies. To create lasting value through data, partnerships and policy. And to promote a vision that is larger and more lasting than making a map or application.
At AppGeo, we strive to follow the dictum of Carpe Geo every day. We create shared value with our customers by understanding their needs and by pioneering solutions that exceed expectations. We are not afraid to challenge the status quo made up of legacy technologies and ways of doing business. To break old habits and offer alternative paths forward, we explore the frontiers of our field every day, and even trespass into other disciplines, borrowing methods, ideas and tools.
Carpe Geo calls us to seize the opportunity to be innovative, find a new path, and broaden our vision when we tackle GIS problems. If the philosophy of Carpe Geo speaks to you, call us, we’re ready to work with you.
