City of Moose Jaw Awarded for Geographic Information System (GIS) Excellence
On Wednesday, September 26, 2018, Esri Canada presented the City of Moose Jaw with an Award of Excellence for its use of geographic information system (GIS) technology to streamline their records, keeping them in line with federal requirements and improving service to the community.
Until a few years ago, the City of Moose Jaw kept infrastructure replacement and repair records, by city block, on recipe cards.
GIS was identified as the best solution to improve information management and since 2010 has been expanded to provide access to GIS data across Engineering, Parks & Recreation, Financial Services, Planning & Land Division and Public Works departments.
Esri Canada is the world’s leading GIL software provider.
