The Town of Columbia Planning Board is very pleased to have found locally the resources and the specialized consulting services offered by Mohawk Valley GIS. In assisting the Board to develop and produce updated reference maps for the Town’s Comprehensive Plan, Ms. Rockwood displayed her capability to grasp or clarify a customer’s objectives, to create products that would meet those needs, and to offer suggestions for improvements based on her creativity and the modern technologies she has at hand. Ms. Rockwood routinely and freely gave of her time to insure that through the development process she and her customer were always on track.

The City of Little Falls is beginning its second year of working with Linda Rockwood of Mohawk Valley GIS. As Supervisor of Public Works/Watershed Manager of the City, I sincerely appreciate the way Linda works with our community. Last year Linda helped me enter the era of GIS. My knowledge of GIS prior to working with Linda was nonexistent; now I’m using it daily in my job. A very important part of Linda’s service is her availability when we need her. I look forward to working with Linda in the years to come.

Ms. Rockwood has been wonderful to work with from beginning to end. Creating an eight county regional mapping and touring site in a short amount of time was no small feat. Her professionalism, attention to detail, commitment and personal style of work is unbelievably positive and focused. Ms. Rockwood’s personal and professional attributes especially shown through when faced with a few stumbling blocks along the way. I am truly grateful to her for a job well done and I look forward to continuing our work on future phases for the project.

Our town was in need of updating our Zoning Map to reflect several changes over the past 20 years. Ms. Linda Rockwood of Mohawk Valley GIS came to our town and showed us a very affordable GIS program. This program along with her expert services has allowed us to update our Zoning Map and have a very useful tool for our Planning Board and Zoning Board to use when reviewing any kind of application. Linda has been there to assist with any problems or questions that we might have. I highly recommend her services and experience in developing a GIS program tailored to your specific needs and conditions.

When first searching for a GIS program that would fit the needs of the Village, I was contacted by Ms. Linda Rockwood of Mohawk Valley GIS. My first thoughts were "here we go again just another GIS program," but after Linda finished her presentation I felt more comfortable with the program and how GIS works. Linda promised that Mohawk Valley GIS would be there to assist me with any problems I might have. I have been using GIS for about nine months and I want to say that Linda has always kept her end of the bargain and has always been there to answer any of my questions. I would recommend Ms. Linda Rockwood and Mohawk Valley GIS to anyone thinking of getting into GIS Technology for their business or community.

Being new to the area, it was important for me to become acclimated as quickly as possible to our 30 locations throughout the county. I thought of framing a Herkimer County map and pinpointing our sites, but instead I decided to work with a firm who could graphically display all of our facilities in a professional format. Mohawk Valley GIS answered the call. I proudly hang their work in my office for all our visitors to see, and it has assisted me tremendously in familiarizing myself with the surrounding communities. Thanks for the great work.

The Herkimer County Chamber of Commerce recently contracted Mohawk Valley GIS to prepare a series of maps of all our local villages for our upcoming Visitors' Guide. We were under time constraints and a board of directors that demanded perfection in our guide, Linda Rockwood came through on both issues. It will be an easy choice when it comes time to put another Guide together; it will be Mohawk Valley GIS.

Our town was in need of several GIS mapping services including updating our Zoning Maps, creating a yearly town-wide garage sale map, locating parcel information, road information, and much more. Ms. Linda Rockwood of Mohawk Valley GIS has been there to assist with any questions that we have had. With her help and guidance I was able to easily create a town-wide garage sale map. It is a very impressive system with many capabilities and Ms. Rockwood was extremely helpful and professional throughout the setup and training. I highly recommend her services. Thank you Ms. Rockwood for a job well done!!!

Ms. Rockwood has been wonderful to work with. I have worked with other GIS specialists in the past, and this year, completing a project of this magnitude [three snowmobile trail maps] was less stressful overall due to the professionalism, attention to detail, commitment and personal manner in which she approaches her work. I highly recommend Linda for any project and wholeheartedly will vouch that your final product will be one of which you will be happy with as Linda takes pride in her work.

Linda was instrumental in facilitating the technology integration training for elementary school teachers implementing GPS into their curricula. Taking a difficult topic and making it understandable and relevant is a skill Linda exemplified throughout the several weeks we spent with her.
Instructional Computing Specialist, Mohawk Regional Information Center
Herkimer County recently contracted with Mohawk Valley GIS to conduct introductory training for county personnel in the areas of mapping, GIS technologies, and the use of ESRI’s ArcView software suite. The training was presented to representatives from our Real Property Tax Office, The County Highway Engineering Department, and the IT Department. Linda Rockwood visited all three offices and developed a tailored curriculum that supported the needs and requirements of all three Herkimer County departments. The two day class was presented clearly, and in a logical manner that was well received. The students demonstrated their comprehension by conducting an end of class project using all the GIS techniques covered.
We were very happy with the quality of the program and will not hesitate to contract with Mohawk Valley GIS in the future.
