Hello world and welcome to Licker Geospatial Consulting Co.'s Blog.
On this blog, you will be able to view and interact with a weekly selection of intriguing GIS, plus random posts related to the business side of LGeo. Feel free to share, tweet, email, pin, pass and otherwise disseminate anything I post here. Simply credit myself, Aaron Licker, or my company, LGeo, and everything should be cool. Comments are welcome. Constructive feedback is welcome as well, as I am new to all of this and you folks know much better than myself about how to communicate socially.
