Who We Are - Geocortex

Who We Are

Our mission - help people accomplish even more with web mapping

Established in 1999, Geocortex is a software and services organization based in beautiful Victoria, B.C. We believe that geographic information has the power to help people make better decisions and positively impact the world around them; we empower them to do this with Geocortex technology.

Our core values

Since 1999, our core values have guided every decision we make. They are:


1. Live the golden rule
It’s a classic – we treat one another, our partners, and our customers the way we would like to be treated.


2. Leave the world a better place
We strive to ensure the work we do empowers people who use Geocortex technology to make a difference.


3. Continuously improve
As individuals and as an organization, we take pride in always finding new ways to challenge ourselves to do (and be) better.

Our technology beliefs

There are some key beliefs at the heart of our technology approach that guide our decisions and have shaped our business model:


1. Get real work done, today!
Like you, we’re excited about the next great thing, but we’re more excited about helping people get real work done today. So, while we prepare for future technology, we also focus on empowering users to build better applications now!


2. Eliminate inefficiencies
New technology is worthwhile when it makes things easier. We strive to engineer product features that say goodbye to inefficiencies and the billable hours they create.


3. Intelligent products before custom code
We believe that writing custom code should be a last resort, not a first instinct. Web mapping applications are susceptible to change over time, so we take a reusable and intelligently engineered product-centric approach to avoid the pitfalls of custom-coded applications.


4. Simplicity is perfection
Our goal is to make the user experience as intuitive and simple as possible. Effective design promotes flexibility, but never at the cost of usability.
