The CGI Geospatial Centre of Excellence (COE) in Québec City, Canada, includes more than 120 experts and is supported by a global network of 600 experts in 13 countries, across four continents. With more than 30 years of experience delivering success for our clients, our COEs are an essential part of CGI’s global offering.

All organizations face significant challenges in the current technological and economic environment. They must provide services to increasingly diverse user communities with competing objectives, while dealing with limited resources. CGI offers effective enterprise geospatial services to improve customer experience, increase organizational agility with innovation, improve customer services with analytical solutions and increase operational efficiency with the automation of geographic information systems.

Our approach is to design algorithms, strategies and systems that improve the speed and accuracy of decision-making as well as to support the implementation of emerging business models using geospatial intelligence (geospatial 2.0). Geospatial 2.0 leverages emerging technologies and location-based data and services, moving organizations from reactive to proactive. We are technology agnostic, designing solutions for our customers to accelerate their digital transformation and drive operational excellence.
