Guiding Guyana’s Growth with Geographic Information Systems

Excel Guyana’s number one mission is to provide innovative solutions to challenges faced by companies who want to invest in Guyana; while simultaneously creating a positive impact on the Guyanese people. Excel’s over three decades of providing consultative and advisory services to the natural resources and mining sector have made them the top strategic consulting firm in not just Guyana, but the entire CARICOM region. 

Because of Excel Guyana, Inc.’s commitment to helping the citizens of Guyana and its continued status as a benchmark for business consultancy in the Caribbean nation, its recent partnership with Latitude Geospatial comes as no surprise.  

Latitude Geospatial, a Geographic Information System (GIS) and Spatial Data provider, is an expert in Location-Based Technologies and Location-Based Intelligence. Aside from GIS and Spatial Data analytics, they also offer solutions including, but not limited to, UAV (drone) solutions, land surveying and mapping, satellite imagery and remote sensing services, digital elevation models, and artisanal and semi-industrial vessel monitoring systems. 

One of Latitude Geospatial’s main goals is to supply critical data to Guyana. Latitude Geospatial uses GIS to determine the current status of natural resources in the country and how the extraction of natural resources correlates to both man-made and natural disasters. Additionally, Latitude Geospatial’s GIS services also help in creating ways to prevent or mitigate losses, through the use and study of its data. 

Latitude Geospatial’s systems come at a critical time, as Guyana has experienced major flooding events in recent years, including a devastating flood in 2021 that affected over 30,000 people – its worst flood in 20-plus years.  A severe flood in May of 2022 also heavily affected several regions and submerged approximately 4,000 km² of the country in high waters. 

Local government officials rely on Latitude Geospatial’s experience, expertise, and data to guide future development into safer, more stable locations. This is especially important in developing a sustainable agriculture industry that will be able to feed Guyana’s people and support its exports. Additionally, Geographic Information Systems can support the mining and exploration industry for increased safety and greener mining practices.

Excel’s dynamic team is the foundation for a fast-growing integrated company focused on offering comprehensive solutions to our clients and partners. Excel is committed to being a vital driver in the development of Guyana and welcomes interest from foreign partners that have skills and products that are essential to Guyana’s growth. 

Excel’s leadership has more than 30 years of experience in building businesses in Guyana and the CARICOM region. With more than 10 years of local presence in Guyana, it has established networks in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, the United States of America, Mexico, and Venezuela. Learn more at
