  • 2. • PRORAGIS, is short for Park and Recreation Operating Ratio and Geographic Information System. • It is a national database that allows park and recreation agencies to benchmark with others, develop program planning, while enhancing overall community operations. WLIA Annual Conference, Lake Geneva, WI Feb. 13-15, 2013 http://www.nrpa.org/PRORAGIS/
  • 3. » Launched in January 2011. » Searchable, online database whereby the user (public park and recreation department) fills in valuable information on their profile and controls that data. » The data is used to generate a variety of reports and users have access to GIS mapping tools. » PRORAGIS is a merger of two preceding NRPA products: the 2009 Operating Ratio Study and the NRPA GIS Model. WLIA Annual Conference, Lake Geneva, WI Feb. 13-15, 2013
  • 4. » 2008, the American Park and Recreation Society (APRS) branch of NRPA sought a means of updating the facility and area standards that had become guidelines by the 1980’s. A project was funded and launched by APRS/NRPA to standardize the park, trails and facility terminology for Geographic Information Systems (GIS). » 2009, NRPA funded and conducted an Operating Ratio Internet Survey to get a database that answers basic operation and management questions - could be compared with peers through the use of ratios as a performance measure, e.g., acres per 1,000 residents and similar. (10 acres per 1,000 is what ECWRPC uses) » In the spring of 2010, NRPA and APRS determined that developing an online profile that was updateable, real-time, and available for members on a 24/7/365 basis was preferable to an annual survey with reports that could age. It was also determined that benefit could be found by using the new GIS Model as part of the on-line profile. WLIA Annual Conference, Lake Geneva, WI Feb. 13-15, 2013
