|Public Sector Solutions Overview|
The GIS needs and challenges of local government and municipalities are diverse, ranging from asset & utility management to planning & development. GIS and IT departments at the city, county, and state level are swamped with the difficulties of poor integration with internal systems and differing data standards. The GIS systems in use today are typically not easily accessible to the frontline user, are only used by the full-time GIS expert, and make it difficult to quickly share data among departments.
The GeoRoom Solution
Using GeoRoom, R7 Solutions can create a customized end-to-end solution that meets the specific needs of a municipality. GeoRoom is a server-side web-based application that combines layered geographic information with contextual data in a customizable environment.
GeoRoom links geographic data such as street maps, utility districts, and aerial photography to tabular data and documents such as ownership records, permits, maintenance and building projects, and contract information into one clickable, searchable interface.
R7 can standardize and web-enable the municipality’s data into a secure, distributed environment. GeoRoom is accessed by frontline users through Internet Explorer and can be hosted and maintained either internally or remotely through R7’s own servers.
Immediate access to an industry-standard GIS system without an outlay of capital for new servers, workstations, server software, or client software.
The package is highly cost competitive with custom software development for making GIS data and contextual database and documents available to non-technical users and even the public.
GeoRoom enhances an organization’s ability to leverage existing expertise in the collection, normalization, projection and presentation of local municipal and county data layers by instantly making those maps and data available to a much larger group of decision-makers and frontline users throughout the organization.
GeoRoom can be tailored to meet exacting specifications. Additional software modules provide document management, legacy system integration, and business process management.
