Todd Tucky (GISP)
Owner / Senior Consultant
Heartland GIS started in 2009 to provide GIS services to groups and associations that needed GIS in their operations, but could not budget for a GIS system and staff. That model has served as the basis for Heartland GIS since that time and has grown to providing GIS support and services to clients across the United States. Heartland GIS staff has been utilizing GIS technologies for over 22+ years. We have managed many GIS projects and have designed several award winning GIS systems that are still in use today. Along with consulting work for several state’s agricultural associations and the Ohio GIS Support Center (OGRIP), Ohio Historic Preservation Office (OHPO) I was the primary author for the State of Ohio statewide GIS strategic plan. Heartland GIS is an ESRI Silver Partner.
