Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology offers the combination of mapping, relational database technology, and analytical tools for improving the management and operations of almost every aspect of societal activity. Government and public sector GIS activities and services include environmental management, transporation and mobility, economic growth, employment, social cohesion, safety and emergency management, homeland security, utilities and infrastructure management, cultural identity and preservation, and parks, recreation and outdoor pursuits. GIS is a tool that strategically and innovatively deployed offers a better way of manging and improving our quality of life.

The purpose of this project is to develop a “ESGIS Strategic Plan” and deploy innovate solutions that improve government service. This project will assess existing government operations and functions as it relates to GIS and the needs citizens and of the community. The ultimate goal is to evaluate how GIS can address the challenges of the next decade by engaging citizens, businesses and government professionals in the planning, design, and deployment of a true enterprise and sustainable GIS that is scalable, large scale and flexible, and will offer on-demand government services through Service Orientated Architechture (SOA) and e-government cloud computing. The purpose it to identify areas of government operations that would significanlty benefit from “technical adaption”.
