Houston, TX – Jacobsen|Daniels (J|D) is pleased to have Vince Hamilton join the firm as Director of Geospatial Services. Serving as a GIS (Geographic Information System) project manager for over 18 years, Vince has been instrumental in helping transportation organizations achieve their technology goals by integrating GIS and business processes to improve operational efficiency and reducing costs. Vince has implemented enterprise GIS systems for airports, toll roads, and national projects including the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) map modernization project in 2000. At J|D, he will draw on these experiences to increase efficiency and reduce costs in the construction and operations of aviation transportation facilities.

“We are thrilled to have Vince lead the future of our GIS services,” said Matt Johnson, Senior Vice President of J|D’s Planning Division. “Providing clients with enhanced visual communication  that is real-time and user-friendly is yet another facet of our commitment to improving the journey for our clients.”

GIS Services at J|D include developing geospatial plans and providing electronic GIS hosting services for airports and municipal agencies. Our services provide real-time team collaboration and customization to meet customer deliverables. With user-friendly map displays, pop-up data, and hard copy map links, our GIS services will continue to provide quality planning and data maintenance with Vince’s seasoned guidance.

Prior to joining J|D, Vince was the Senior GIS Project Manager with the Houston Airport Systems (HAS) for over eight years. Vince has been instrumental in making HAS one of the leaders in implementing GIS technology. The GIS applications developed by Vince touched many departments including parking, construction, concessions and commercial properties. Recently, Vince was awarded the Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) by ESRI for advancements in GIS applications to support aviation business solutions. Vince also shares J|D’s mission of “improving the journey” as he currently sits on the ESRI National Aviation Advisory Board and the Houston Galveston Area Council Geographic Data Workgroup and uses GIS to support his role as the operations lead for his community CERT (Community Emergency Response Team).
