Water/Sewer Line Management
GIS for Local Government
GIS can assist in most business functions for small cities and large counties, giving local government the tools to understand the lands that they manage. Even governments that have a small budget can take advantage of new, inexpensive GIS technologies. Gorge GIS can guide an organization through a phased GIS-implementation strategy that focuses on quick results and leaves room for more complex plans.
New GIS client/server software allows for inexpensive viewing capabilities that help local governments identify zoning, the location of water/sewer lines or fire hydrants. Tax-lot data is typically available from a county GIS server. GIS data-viewers can be used to access a county GIS server data while simultaneously accessing local GIS data.
Many of our GIS models have been specifically developed for rural lands, providing suitability and cumulative-effects modeling, built/vacant analysis, and satellite image-based change detection. More advanced GIS implementations can assist in long-range planning, identifying affected parties for water/sewer failures, or emergency vehicle dispatch.
