RIA Mobile GIS is a unique business that focuses on information systems for field workers and the business operations that support them.

Our dynamic and innovative team specialise in the technologies that enable field service management including global positioning systems (GPS) and geographic information systems (GIS).

We work mainly for businesses that plan, maintain and operate assets and infrastructure such as roads, railways and pipelines as well as natural resource management groups that manage the environment.  The organisations that we serve all have a common need for up to date and timely information about the location and status of the features they manage. At the core of our systems are established commercial off the shelf products that we combine and integrate to suit the needs of each individual business or organisation.  We write systems, orchestrate data flows, ensure information arrives where and when it is needed and provide training.

We are based in Hobart and supply systems, expertise and services throughout Australia from the Antarctic Division based in Southern Tasmania to the bauxite mine in Nhulunbuy in the Northern Territory.

Established in January 2000, the directors of the company are Tim Price and Robert Driessen.
