Geographical Information Systems (GIS) for Smaller Cities

Iowa State University is hosting the Iowa Municipal Professionals Academy July 29-31 in Ames, Iowa. The purpose of the Academy is to provide city clerks and municipal administrators with comprehensive training on a broad range of topics. I am thrilled to be part of this year’s list of presenters. In the Geographical Information System (GIS) session at 10:15 a.m. on Thursday, July 30, we will cover topics including:
  • Bridging the gap between asset management and staff needs
  • Cloud GIS Systems
  • Mobile GIS Applications
  • ArcGIS Online
  • How to get your community up and running with GIS services
GIS technology provides smaller cities with an affordable and effective means to managing assets. Asset management applies database technology to mapping, allowing users to track information about specific locations within a system.
GIS applications can be designed to support various municipal asset management requirements, including:
  • Water Utilities
  • Electric Utilities
  • Streets/Highway  Departments
  • Public Works
  • Sanitary and Storm Water Sewers
  • Parks
Would you like more information on Shawn’s presentation or how GIS can help you manage your city’s assets? Check out this sampling of GIS-related projects we’ve completed, and contact MSA’s Shawn O’Shea.
