GeoGRAFX GIS Services of Tucson, AZ, Announces the Relocation and Expansion of Their Arizona-Based Headquarters and Production Facilities to Serve the Mining Industry

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - July 15, 2008) - More than quadrupling GeoGRAFX GIS Services' office space, the new offices at Oracle Road and Prince Avenue contain on-site training rooms, specially designed to support the complex needs of today's professionals in mineral exploration and mining. Founder and President Barbara Carroll notes, "Our new offices have been specifically designed to support best practices in GIS services and ensure our clients' success. Thanks to strong network of referrals and word of mouth, our GeoGRAFX GIS Services business has grown dramatically in the last two years."

"At GeoGRAFX, our number one focus is to create maps using any geotechnical source to support timely decision making for geoscientists and investors. Traditional, one-dimensional maps are great, but they don't tell the whole story. The beauty of using GIS-generated maps -- where geotechnical data layers can be added or removed -- is that they help geologists 'see' the entire 3-D picture," adds Ms. Carroll. "The seamless integration of geological, geophysical, and geochemical data supports better and more timely data-driven decision making."

GeoGRAFX GIS Services mapping capabilities include: grass-roots reconnaissance maps; integrated historical exploration & production data maps -- where old paper maps, aerial photos, drill logs, and other historical data can be integrated to create intelligent, multi-layered maps; land status maps; drill hole & soil sample maps; and presentation and 3-D materials to support investor needs. As a GIS service provider, GeoGRAFX can either support internal GIS departments and staff, or serve as a fully outsourced GIS partner, providing mapping intelligence for exploration, production, and investor decisions.

The new physical and mailing address is: GeoGRAFX GIS Services; 540 W. Prince Rd., Bldg B.; Tucson, AZ 85705; phone: 520 744-4457 fax: 520 744-3066;; and GPS Coordinates: 32 Deg 16'20.03"N and 110 Deg 58'53.47"W.

Founded in 1991, GeoGRAFX GIS Services is one of the leading providers of computer-based data integration, management and presentation services supporting the needs of the mineral exploration and mining industry. The consulting practice provides cost-effective solutions for various earth science and geotechnical applications with special emphasis on providing timely, decision support, intelligent maps.
