  3. City of Corvallis • Population: 52,950 • Area: 13.99 square miles • Budget: $68.6M Operating $34.9M Capital • GIS Staff: 3 FTE (Coordinator, 2 Analysts) 0.5 FTE Manager OSU Intern Program

  4. City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System Brief History • 2000 GISMO use expands • 2001 ESRI – Special Achievement in GIS Award • 2002 Field data collection ArcPAD and iPAQ’s • 2003 ICMA Grant - Playground Inventory IMMS • 2003 Natural Features Inventory Project (NFI) • 2006ArcIMS/MapServer Projects Administrative tool NFI

  5. City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System Key Decisions • Initial Software • Public Access to data. Never “marketed” GIS • Quality of data – accuracy builds confidence • Build on small steps and successes • New software – can be the needed key, or suicide • Data stewardship concept. Builds ownership • Organizational focused GIS vs. departmental • Build a broad base of support for the system • Training and ongoing support are imperative • Automation of routine processes is critical!

  6. City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System Software • ESRI software products - regional ‘de facto’ standard • Different software for different needs and purposes • ArcINFOProfessional GIS creation and maintenance of GIS (GIS staff) • ArcViewUser software for analysis and custom map creation capabilities and/or data stewards • GISMO Custom City software for viewing, query, standard reports, mailing labels, simple maps • Arc ExplorerFreeUser software. • ArcPAD Field data entry and maintenance • ArcIMS Intranet and Internet mapping services

  7. City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System Software • Legacy ArcView: GIS data creation and maintenance, custom solutions Example - ArcView application for address maintenance

  8. City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System GISMO • Custom Corvallis software • 1999 PW with consultant (GeoNorth) • Visual Basic and Map Objects • Over 160 users - desk and mobile installs • PW’s maintenance management software • ‘Common portal’ to programs, departments, sources, etc. • Links data to geographic location eg. scanned documents • License cost minimal (< $90 each install) • Easy to use – little training

  9. City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System GISMO • Designed for PW Expanded through the organization -- Planning, Development, Fire, Police, Dispatch, City Managers Office, Park & Recreation

  10. Public Works Department GIS integrated into work processes

  11. Fire Department Mobile Mapping • Nine current laptop computers on first out apparatus • 4 engines • 1 truck • 1 command vehicle • 3 ambulances

  12. City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System ArcPAD • Street Division for sign inventory • Project failed three prior software tests • Partial inventory estimated > a year • Completed all in less than 4 months • Very successful!

  13. City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System ArcPAD Why is this software/hardware combination successful? • No keyboard required • Easy and simple to use • Flexible - crew changes are easy and quick • Portability – fits in a pocket • Direct link to GIS - shapefile editing • Crew’s work easier and more efficient • Vast array of iPAQ add-on accessories

  14. City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System ArcPAD • Field data collection key component in Data Cycle • Provides a tool for field personnel to manage systems • Faster turn around time GIS GISMO

  15. ArcPAD City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System ICMA Grant Project Playground Inventory & Maintenance Management • Expand technology to low-tech department • Streamline regular reporting and management efforts • Add significant GIS features into system • Low (and decreasing) budgets • Eager staff - desire to improve service • Partnership with Oregon State University CS 461-462 student team

  16. City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System Natural Features Inventory • Two year project • Scientific inventory of natural features • Mandated by state land use law • Expand GIS into public policy decision arena • GIS á la ‘cart’ – powered HUGE datasets • Inter-disciplinary effort – Planners, Engineers, Foresters, GIS • Hugely successful • Analysis strengths demonstrated

  17. City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System Why use GIS? • Geographic or location base to most city information and services (FGDC study 80% gov’t data location based). • Better information and analysis tools for decision making and communicating. • Same information to everyone not different versions, dates. • Public access to information • History of changes (Measure 37) • Dynamic resource information increasing, improving • Data + Mapping production of custom maps -- Better Customer Service!

  18. Smart Maps provide Smart Service Delivery! City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System

  19. Citizens Inventory The World Geographic Knowledge Decision Support City of Corvallis - Geographic Information System Geography matters to the City of Corvallis!
