One of the best aspects of utilizing a GIS application is its ability to be malleable. As your community progresses and changes, your GIS does too, evolving and updating in real-time with you. In Fulton County, Georgia, county administrators learned firsthand the benefits of employing a GIS system to maintain their facilities as the County continued to grow.
By integrating the GIS enterprise with county departments’ core business systems, staff can easily analyze data, map water and sewer systems, create tax parcel maps, and so much more. One of the biggest benefits the County enjoyed, though, was the ability to keep pace with changes to facilities. Because they used PDF paper printouts of their CAD drawings, many prints were decades old and thus not updated with the most recent modifications. By bringing CAD data into the GIS platform, documents are easily modified and accessible, saving the County and its staff time, money, and energy.
The GIS application also helped with interior maintenance of the County’s facilities. Tracking things like office inventory, electric infrastructure, and office occupancies and vacancies, to name a few, are intuitive and readily available to the County now that the data has been brought into the GIS system.
