Granville County, North Carolina: GIS for a Safer Community

Date: 2012-03-07
Share |

Granville County, North Carolina is taking receipt of new GIS layers for public safety.  After attending a GIS seminar (10 Ways to Improve Your Public Safety with GIS) at a recent North Carolina joint NENA/APCO conference, Granville County 9-1-1 Manager, William Wheeler, realized that a ramped up GIS was critical for public safety.  Under Mr. Wheeler’s guidance, the county choose Geographic Technologies Group (GTG) to create the needed data sets and to create a vision for moving GIS to the enterprise at the County.  Curtis Hinton, President of GTG states; “the county has taken great strides forward.  We have just delivered a comprehensive five year plan that ensures that all county departments are getting a return-on-investment from GIS.”  The county will be leveraging Esri’s ArcGIS for Local Government suite of tools to quickly roll out databases and applications to departments.  Mr. Hinton further points out, “the county quickly realized that enterprise GIS was a reality even in these down economic times.  GIS will be implemented incrementally and responsibly.”

For more information on attending a “10 Ways to Improve Your Public Safety with GIS” workshop or this project please contact Matthew McLamb by email or 888-757-4222.
