Founded in 1991 as Atlantic Geomatics Research, the company rapidly gained a national reputation for developing practical applications for the new field of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). These early successes with digital mapping led to contracts with several Nova Scotia municipalities and departments in the provincial and federal government. As the company further demonstrated its skills, expertise and knowledge, it was called upon to solve challenges that its clients faced. This resulted in the company developing applications for the dispatch of emergency vehicles, billing solutions for water and electricity, municipal planning solutions, land registration, property taxation, patient and physician tracking solutions. Over this time, Atlantic Geomatics Research grew from a very specialized company into a highly competent centre of excellence.
In recent years, the scope of AG Research’s experience has grown to include land remediation, land and property management, environmental monitoring, mineral claims and permitting, asset & asset maintenance, and mineral, oil & gas coring.
AG Research is headquartered in Sydney (Nova Scotia) with offices in Dartmouth (Nova Scotia), and Bermuda.
