Our Vision

Is to help towns, muni’s, utilities, and businesses embrace their locational information making sharing information between users and other organizations easier, more transparent, and effective!


Our Company’s Story

Our owner, Bradford Folta Jr, started Honey Badger Analytics to help customers leverage their Geographic Information Systems (GIS) now referred to as Locational Analytics. From his time working at several public agencies, a university, and in the private sector, Bradford noticed that most organizations were either too specific with their use of GIS or just used it for reference maps. He believed that it could and offer so much more, but never got buy-in from management.

No matter the organization he worked, Bradford created tools that eased antiquated workflows increasing efficiency and decreasing time spent on mundane tasks. From an tool tracker in Google Sheets to a environmental risk assessment tool for bridges and large culverts, Bradford worked with subject matter experts to find ways to bring information together and make that information shareable to all those involved. To date, almost all tools created are still in use!

Why are we telling you this? Because that’s why we are here, to make your life easier, to leverage your budget in your favor, and to enable you to more without complicating your coworker’s life or lives.


Our Company’s Values

-Passion-
We love GIS and all that it has to offer. That’s why we are deep generalist keeping an eye on the future as we enable our customers now. We don’t just focus on one part, we make all the parts work together.

-Legacy-
The systems we help put together are built to last and we aim to keep it that way. We are surrounded by data and can capture a majority of it. Giving it ability to change with conditions allows our data to grow with or independent of us.

-Timeliness-
We are about being on time. We know that getting your system in your hands will allow you to do your work ASAP. Hence our motivation. A system is no good if it isn’t working for you right away!

-Trust-
We want you to know that you are part of the Honey Badger pack! We are open, honest, and work with you to build a system that reflective of you and your organization, not ours.

-Respect-
We respect time, budget, people, apprehension, reputations, etc. We treat you like a friend because we want honest and open communication. So we know where you are, where we need to be, and how we can best serve you.

-Flexibility-
We are flexible to no end. We want to make sure that if you don’t have everything you want at least we got you on a path to get there. You don’t have to have the best system right away. You just need to set up the system right from the get-go to make it great!
