GIS Services

Custom Mapping

Do you need a particular map made specifically for your ministry? Members of the GMMS Community are available to create custom maps for Christian ministry organizations and their members around the world. These services are priced quite reasonably; typically clients are billed for a per-hour labor charge (to create the desired map), plus a per-piece media fee to print the desired map.
