Matt Cooper

Senior GIS Section Manager

Matt thrives in situations that need precedent-setting technology.

As a senior geographic information system section manager and application development practice group leader, he advances geospatial and information management solutions. He helps clients analyze, integrate and automate data, making important decisions. And he leads teams in migrating GIS infrastructure to the cloud.

For the Municipality of Anchorage, Alaska, Matt and team developed an entire technology infrastructure — including web applications/maps, servers, network and firewall. That infrastructure is serving about 3 million requests per week with 5,000-plus users.

The Colorado Department of Transportation recently turned to Matt to build a new app for bridge inventories and inspections — aiming to generate reports in a couple days rather than months.

Matt holds associate credentials in Esri Enterprise System Design and ArcGIS Desktop Development. He is a member of the Association of American Geographers and the Society for Conservation GIS.
