Customer Testimonials

“I highly recommend Patrick Ward for any GIS efforts. Patrick had worked for me as a GIS specialist, administrator, and manager. He has since become the principal owner at Draw Tap GIS and I have since hired Patrick as a consultant and value his work ethic and GIS expertise.”

-Director of Information Technology

“Patrick was the Senior GIS Specialist providing GIS technical support, server configurations and overall trouble-shooting and services support. He provided technical direction for expansion and upgrades for all the ESRI installations, upgrade, vendor support along with the crucial and critical GIS production environment management. He maintains his composure in a hectic environment that existed in this production facility and is always available for service evaluation and problem resolutions when they occur. He is a pleasure to work with, bringing his focused attention to detail on every project assigned to him. His communication and people skills are excellent, and he has provided innovative GIS environment management and monitoring ideas which we have integrated into our customer support and services model. I can highly recommend him for any GIS management or technical opportunity that he is a part of. I know he will succeed at any challenge that presents itself in a development and/or support role and he is technically well versed and very talented.

“I am not experienced with GIS, so often don’t know how to ask for what I need or if it’s even possible. Patrick is always patient with me and somehow seems to be able to decipher what to do for my projects in spite of my poor direction! His responsiveness is way above my expectations and he has always met our timeframes, even with many short turn-around times. I can’t say enough good things about working with Patrick and Draw Tap GIS.”

-Administrative Support to the Captain and Civilian Division Commander

“Patrick offers professional and innovative GIS solutions for the Water and Wastewater Operations Division of Public Works. He constantly improves the burgeoning citywide GIS applications. He truly is a valuable team member.”

-Senior Water Resources Engineer

“Patrick is well versed in Esri-based Enterprise GIS technology including ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Server, ArcGIS Online and Portal for ArcGIS. I have found Patrick to be a competent Esri-GIS professional who takes his love of GIS well beyond the workplace. When Patrick left our organization to pursue his consulting business (Draw Tap GIS LLC), he left amicably and with sufficient respect that we intend to periodically retain his services when we have need of such skills. Patrick was often “online” outside of his required work hours, and was more than happy to interact with me at nights and weekends to answer questions or put in extra time when needed. I hope that you will consider Patrick for this key IT position.”

-GIS Solutions Manager

“I am eager and excited to recommend Patrick. I have known Patrick for the past eight years, during which I’ve been an Account Executive, covering the larger cities of Southern California. During this time, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Patrick as both a customer and a business partner. A delight to work with, Patrick is exceptionally diligent and productive in his efforts. He also has the “holy grail” of GIS skills: the technical acumen to understand, implement and support a GIS platform, and the organizational skills to navigate an agency’s needs and personalities. “Enterprise” truly is the operative word in this position. Patrick is a complete package and simply great to work with. Without a doubt, I confidently recommend him to serve in this key role.”
