GIS1.net was started by its owner, Chad Rupert, in July of 2010. Chad came from a long background of service, first to his country as a Marine Corps officer and then to the state of Georgia as a GIS Manager at the South Georgia Regional Development Center (5 yrs) and later at the University of Georgia's Carl Vinson Institute of Government (11 yrs). With over 16 years of local government GIS service in Georgia, Chad has imparted his passion for providing valuable assistance to local governments into GIS1.net.

Since its inception, GIS1.net has experienced rapid growth, and our family of satisfied clients continues to grow, sometimes on a weekly basis. We believe our growth can be directly attributed to the quality of service we provide and the unique solutions we develop. We always strive to exceed expectations and never take a client for granted.

What our clients are saying

"I consider Chad Rupert to be among the best experts and consultants in the GIS field. I have known Chad for many years and I am excited for all of us in the property appraisal business to have his company, GIS 1, LLC, available to support our GIS needs. When I needed assistance with my GIS applications, Chad was the first person I called. I think he is the best in the business."
