  5. 5. GIS History – 1991 to 2011• 911 (County)• Mapping landline calls (AutoCAD)• Mapping wireless Phase I/II calls• State funding provided• Assessor of Property (County)• Conversion from paper/mylar to GIS• State Base Mapping Project• Planning & Engineering (City)• Mapping to support development• Map production• Utilities (City)• Mapping facilities• Map production

  9. 9. LGIM Common Datasets• Address• Extended to meet State 911 data requirements• AdministrativeArea• Elevation• ParcelPublishing• Weekly imports from State of TN schema• PublicSafetyPlanning• Supporting city/county prefire planning• ReferenceData• Extended to support State 911 data requirements• Extended to support city/county structureinventory

  17. 17. Keys to Progress• Enterprise License Agreements• Allowed County to expand existing capabilities• Allowed City to implement true enterpriseenvironment• LGIM• Created opportunity to combine data assets in a moreorganized structure• Reduces duplication of work• Local Gov Basemaps• Makes it quick/easy to create new web and mobileapps
