How Anne Arundel County Uses GIS to Provide Better Decision-Making Tools for Citizens, Local Businesses, and Future-Residents

State and local governments work tirelessly across the United States to administer and manage a never-ending list of essential functions that support their citizens and local businesses. In recent years, there has been a steadily increasing need for better decision-making tools that can take advantage of spatial data to identify previously unseen patterns. Whether you are a local business owner requiring up-to-date property information and imagery, or a prospective resident looking for information about school districts before deciding where to move, or even just a current resident needing information about changes to trash pickup, GIS provides unique tools to support you in your decision making.

In this webinar, we'll be joined by Anne Arundel County, MD, a leader in the government GIS space. Over the last several years, Anne Arundel County's GIS team has worked tirelessly to introduce new spatial capabilities into the county and simplify a variety of operations. They recently deployed a revamped version of their MyAnneArundel map viewer application that has been hit with citizens and businesses alike. We'll dive into some of the history behind this application, how it was built, the value it has delivered to the county, and why you should build and deploy your own similar app if you haven't already!

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How the GIS team at Anne Arundel County uses GIS to empower citizens and local businesses
  • How their new and improve MyAnneArundel map viewer app has changed the game in their organization
  • How this app was built, and how you could deploy something similar in your own organization
