As part of a move to further its unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) mapping services, GEO Jobe, a GIS software and solutions provider founded in 1999, has named Jeff Lawrence to a role in UAV business development.
According to the Hermitage, Tenn.-based firm, Lawrence is a licensed UAV pilot – the third on GEO Jobe’s team. Lawrence, a graduate of the University of Kentucky, comes to GEO Jobe with 30 years of experience in project management, planning, GIS application development, and geospatial services in the public and private sectors. Prior to joining GEO Jobe, he was a project manager with Collier Engineering and was previously an assistant to the executive director of planning with the Nashville Planning Dept.
With a fleet of UAVs, GEO Jobe is now offering high-resolution, low-altitude orthophotography services and hosting options via its GeoPowered Cloud.
“With Jeff’s addition, combined with the team we currently have in place, we’re primed to continue our growth in UAV mapping services to support existing and new clients, particularly throughout Tennessee and surrounding areas,” says Neill Jobe, CEO of the company.
For its UAV services, GEO Jobe says it has clients in local government, utilities, construction, real estate, agriculture and facilities management.
