Geonaming solutions

from http://www.geonamingsolutions.com/




With the constant development of communities and regions, and the ever-changing nature of technology, it is becoming increasingly important to ensure robust geonaming (geographic naming) and addressing systems are in place. Strong systems ensure quality information for emergency response, social planning, service delivery and analysis purposes.


This company provides consultancy services to governments and private organisations who require development, implementation or improvement of their geospatial capabilities to ensure world-class outcomes are derived from high-grade addressing and geonaming data.

Working with our expert team at Geonaming Solutions offers assurance that your naming and addressing processes are accurate and concise through our:

- Strong grasp on existing policy, legislation, guidelines and standards
- Ability to facilitate community engagement and resolve existing issues
- Ability to re-engineer naming processes for ease of use by municipal councils, state and federal governments
- High-level knowledge of crowd-sourcing/VGI methods

Too often, development agencies and community groups fail to work within rigid geonaming and addressing policies administered by government, resulting in rejected or delayed planning applications or community program proposals. These delays impinge on the timely delivery of urban planning activities. By engaging Geonaming Solutions to manage your geonaming and addressing processes and approval regimes prior to the submission of proposals, you will benefit from:

- Increased positive community engagement and feedback
- Enhanced geonaming and addressing outcomes which are imbued with community spirit
- Improved geospatial data systems and information which underpin planning and analysis
- Reduced employee research and development time, resulting in reduced wage expenditure

I think it's just great to work like that... Being an onomastician, me too, I would like to deal with naming process and be useful for international organisations and business. 

Is there any free position for me?))))))))
