Michael W. Dobson, Ph.D.

President, TeleMapics LLC

I founded TeleMapics in 2002 to provide strategic consulting services to companies involved in Mapping, GIS, Navigation, Local Search, Location Based Services and Geospatial Information. Our goal is to help companies achieve sustainable market growth and improved profitability through strategic planning and operational execution.

My background includes experience as the CTO and EVP of Engineering for a high profile start-up in wireless LBS/local search. In addition, I served as the Chief Technologist, Chief Cartographer and business strategy leader for the world’s largest map and Geospatial Information publishing company during their transition to digital information publishing and GIS. I spent the initial years of my career as a college professor researching spatial data handling, the display of spatial data for rapid information processing and practical applications of Geographic Information Systems in industry and government.
Our clients include local search providers, software publishers, software application providers, LBS companies, GIS software providers, map publishers, map navigation companies, information publishers and spatial technology providers in the U.S. and abroad. In addition, we provide services to the law firms related to intellectual property issues in technology and the uses of Geospatial Information. Finally, we provide due diligence and M & A advice for venture capital firms considering new opportunities.
