RICHMOND, Va. – VertiGIS, a leading geographic information systems (GIS) solution provider and software developer, announced today the completed acquisition of Mapcom Systems LLC, an established telecommunications software and services provider based in Richmond, VA.

Mapcom joins VertiGIS’s North American business unit alongside Geocortex®, whose technology helps the developers of web mapping applications with innovative workflow, security, monitoring, visualization, reporting and printing tools. Mapcom will also be further supported by VertiGIS’s EMEA businesses, most notably VertiGIS GmbH in Austria, who produce ConnectMaster™ software solutions that help companies cost-effectively design, document and manage their telecommunications networks’ inventory and support operations.
