The Geographic Information Systems (i.e. computer based mapping) industry has deep roots in Northern Colorado. Recently a group of local GIS companies and organizations formed a cluster with support from RMI2 and the City of Fort Collins.
The Rocky Mountain Geotechnology Cluster, Advancing the Northern Colorado GIS Alley, will work towards private and public coordination to solve world-wide Location Based problems, such as facilities, natural resources, and transportation corridors. Specific strategies of the group include marketing the cluster, attracting other GIS companies to Northern Colorado, and working closely with workforce initiatives so that the skills and training needed for this profession continue to be offered at all levels of education in the region.
