Local GIS Tidbits

The Citizen GIS [Chesterfield, VA] project was approved as part of the county’s FY10 Technology Improvement program and was originally budgeted at $80,000.

Condrey said his department “received a lot of feedback” in support of Citizen GIS from the local business community, the board of supervisors and staff members in other divisions of the county government.

And that was before anyone knew the project was going to come in so far under budget. Because of technology changes that resulted in significant cost savings, the total expenditure was approximately $25,000.

It’s a Silverlight app built on ESRI technology. One tool of interest? Convert Easting/Northing to Lat/Lon. I guess that was requested in the feedback.
