T Tools & Technology • Foursquare ITP

Our philosophy is to always look for more efficient and effective ways to do our work and help our clients.

We invest our time and resources into developing a variety of tools that promote data processing and GIS automation for a better value to our clients, more robust and data-driven results, and oftentimes a tool that our clients can use to continue planning once the project is complete. Our tools are both for our internal use on projects as well as tailored solutions for our clients’ use. We are constantly improving on our technical solutions so the tools remain relevant, ensuring that we achieve the ultimate outcome – a practical and ready-to-use product.
