Welcome to GDA Corp!

Founded in 2002, Geospatial Data Analysis Corporation (GDA) is a woman-owned business specializing in the analysis of satellite imagery and in particular the automated pre-processing, data extraction, analysis and operational delivery of intelligence products for agricultural, environmental and resource management. GDA is built on the principle that the use of advanced science and technology can have a profound impact on the world in which we live. The challenges facing the world’s food and water supply, forests and air quality are prime examples.

GDA, initially a research and development firm, was founded through a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) award out of NASA’s Stennis Space Center. Initial stages of the company's development were based on additional SBIR awards and collaboration with the USDA, NGA (National Geospatial Intelligence Agency), NASA and USGS. This heritage provided GDA with a tremendous advantage by allowing us to work with many of the leading experts in the industry and providing an environment to develop leading edge technology without the pressures of the commercial marketplace.

The result?

GDA has developed industry-leading methodologies and algorithms for operational, automated processing of large image datasets, for automated extraction of features and patterns from imagery, and for building spatial decision support and expert systems.

Our staff of GIS and Remote Sensing experts, computer scientists, and business managers provides a team-oriented, detail-driven approach to providing client solutions, leaving no stone unturned in our quest to deliver the highest quality products and services to our clients.

In mid-2009, GDA made our technology available to commercial clients for the first time.  GDA is committed to expanding availability to additional commercial clients and markets going forward, while maintaining focus on:

GDA uses state-of-the-art, proprietary image processing techniques, which have been developed by our highly trained staff, to analyze low, medium, and high resolution imagery datasets to fulfill exact client needs. These highly automated techniques and algorithms, available as services, provide our customers both time and cost saving advantages.

GDA and the USDA/FAS

GDA is proud of our long-standing working relationship with the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) of the USDA. Through this relationship GDA has been able to utilize its technology alongside the expertise of the USDA/FAS to provide global crop intelligence and analysis.

GDA is a Major User of Global Landsat Imagery

GDA is the second largest commercial downloader of Landsat imagery from the USGS worldwide. Not bad for a small business that formed in 2004 from a NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project. Access to readily available Landsat imagery has helped GDA to expand rapidly and serve agricultural, environmental, and resource management clients, some of whom were previously unaware of the tremendous value that Landsat data and its analysis can bring to their decision-making and ultimately their bottom line.
