However, it wasn’t until Alan became proficient in title due diligence and large land data analytics that he realized his true calling was in the GIS arena.
To this day. the constant artistic-like battle between representing surface and subsurface ownership in GIS maps challenges Alan to push the envelope with software capabilities and land management. Alan brings experience. dedication and creativity to the GEL Consulting team as he merges technology and analytics into a unified platform for their clients to manage and prosper.
Jim D. Hill Head of Technology
From an early age, Jim was intrigued with computers and would take every opportunity to learn anything he could about how they worked and what they could do. His first programming lesson came from an Atari XE system that he would spend hours typing up BASIC programs that he copied from the manual to a small TV that served as a console.
Jim completed his education in computer science and began working as a contractor for small businesses as he honed his skill for solving wide ranging computer problems. During this time, he became very interested in databases and he sought ways to break into the field. He was given his opportunity during a chance encounter while doing work at one of his clients’ office. This encounter launched a ten-year journey into the heart of database development and user interface design.
Jim became part of a team that assembled the inner workings of an application that enabled the efficient transfer of information necessary to empower operators and investors alike. The very best parts of that team are what is now known as GEL Consulting Group.
