Azavea is a HUBZone Small Business Concern and GSA Schedule 70 Contractor that designs and develops award-winning geospatial software. The firm was organized in 2000 to create technologically advanced solutions for geospatial data visualization and analysis. Azavea is a certified B Corporation, a commercial enterprise that operates with a social mission: to advance the state of the art in geospatial technology and apply it for civic, social, and environmental impact.
Azavea provides a range of services that include customized web and mobile software development, user experience design, data analysis and visualization, and big geospatial data processing. Our software engineers, user experience (UX) designers, GIS analysts, data scientists, project managers, writers, and other specialists have experience in many domains, including: water resources, urban ecosystems management, climate adaptation planning, conservation, sustainable transportation, and remote sensing. Our clients include government, commercial, nonprofit, and academic organizations, as well as multilateral organizations like the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, Inter-America Development Bank, and the United Nations.
Azavea is particularly distinguished by its ability to build performant applications that leverage Earth observation imagery and remotely sensed data. To that end, Azavea sponsors core development of GeoTrellis, an open source geographic data processing engine for high performance applications that provides the ability to process large and small raster and network data sets with low latency by distributing the computation across multiple threads, cores, CPUs, and clusters of machines.
Azavea has particular expertise in making high performance geospatial processing possible on the web. Through our work on Raster Foundry, we believe that we could support USAID in humanitarian relief and disaster response efforts throughout the world. We have also built tools to support climate change mitigation planning at the community level, and we can provide custom web and mobile software development services to address many project-specific needs.
