The good news for Analytical Surveys, Inc. (ASI) is that loses are down considerably from nearly $800,000 in the year ago quarter to $82,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2006.
Cost cutting in salaries, wages, benefits and subcontractor costs helped lower the loss, but income dropped in part, says the company due to a smaller number of active contracts compared to last year and a fewer new contract signings in the past quarter.
Recall that the company is moving from a general GIS focus to oil and gas. “We anticipate that our investments in oil and natural gas properties will begin generating revenue in fiscal 2007,” said Analytical Surveys CEO Lori Jones.

“The objective of this project is to develop a system where all we have to do is hit the button on the computer and the Geographic Information Systems can spit out a map based on good science that can assist emergency managers on the ground who will eventually have to decide where to put the burial sites.”
Shawn Hutchinson, assistant professor of geography and director of Kansas State’s Geographic Information Systems Spatial Analysis Laboratory who, along with John Harrington, professor of geography and Lori Emerson, a graduate student in geography, Manhattan are building a GIS to site a burial area for dead livestock, in the event of a disease outbreak or bioterrorism attack.
