About: Based in Abu Dhabi, UAE, GPC Global Information Solutions LLC (GPC-GIS), was launched in 2008 by the Geographic Planning Collaborative, Inc. (GPC) to specialize in the delivery of GIS services to the MENA Region. By harnessing more than 30 years experience of GPC partners, we provide GIS consulting and technology services for a wide variety of organizations and projects in the region. 

The GPC-GIS is a full service consulting firm and consortium of international collaborators focused on supporting our clients in the development and application of geographic and related information technologies to a wide variety of application areas. Most importantly, GPC-GIS leverages the GPC network of highly skilled professionals dedicated to harnessing the power of existing and emerging technologies on behalf of our clients, and in assisting them in effectively integrating these tools within their own planning efforts and day-to-day operations. 

While we are best known for our technology focus, our most valuable resource is our people.  We have assembled an international, complementary team of multi-disciplinary professionals who have the background to turn emerging technologies into practical tools for carrying out real life tasks within a wide range of topics.  Our consultants and partners includes seasoned professionals with expertise in geographic information systems (GIS), urban and regional planning, location based services, traffic management, emergency response, security, resource management, geography, earth sciences, remote sensing, computer science, landscape architecture, environmental assessment, multi-media, graphic communications, and international development finance.
