New software allows US county to share its GIS with govt depts

Cleveland (Ohio, US): A new software will allow Cuyahoga County”s geographic information system, or GIS, to share housing patterns, sewer line locations, road conditions and other data with similar government-run systems.

The county spent $26,000 on the software, developed by California-based Environmental Systems Research Institute, which is used by most cities, counties and states with GIS, said Jeff Mowry, the county”s chief information officer.

Police, firefighters, planners and development officials rely on GIS maps, which can provide the location of sex offenders, details about buildings, the elevation of property and directions from one place to another.
