Digital mapping and GIS software developer, Cadcorp has announced that Newtownabbey Borough Council has selected Cadcorp SIS- Spatial Information System, to provide the basis for the council’s first corporate-wide GIS. Newtownabbey now joins a growing list of local authorities in Northern Ireland, all of whom are using Cadcorp SIS to help them meet their e-Government objectives.
Under the terms of the contract, Cadcorp is supplying a number of Cadcorp SIS Map Manager and Map Editor software licences and assisting the council in the implementation of the new system. Cadcorp SIS- Active Server Component (ASC) is also included to underpin future corporate GIS deployment across the council’s intranet and externally to citizens via the Internet.
Cadcorp SIS will also be used to prepare and maintain a database of corporate land and property assets so that related information and documents for individual items can be accessed from maps held by the council. In addition, it will be used to facilitate council development projects and property transactions.
