Geographic Information System Intelligent business solutions where location matters


NeST GIS is a products and services entity under NeST Digital Technologies, offering advanced geospatial solutions with a focus on government, cadastral, utilities, transportation and facilities management. One of the NeST’s key differentiators in the industry is that it is a software development company that has added GIS as a horizontal technology focus area, rather than a ‘mapping’ company attempting software development in GIS. We help to GIS‐enable the business processes of our clients. NeST GIS has a strong focus in offering services built upon Esri technology. Besides providing data development and application development services, we have specialized in technology migration and GIS consulting services.
