Happy New Year!


I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year! This article caught my eye about “The Year in Maps“…it’s like all the other year in review stuff out there, except it’s related to what we do (from the Boston Globe).

A special thanks to Mark Greninger for his […]

GIS Case Studies

We are making a concerted effort to showcase the value of GIS through the development of case studies that highlight existing applications, projects, programs, and initiatives that leverage the power of GIS to provide benefits to the business of the County.

Many agencies understand the value of GIS, but are reluctant to invest precious resources […]

He demonstrated some of his technologies back at an Enterprise GIS Committee Meeting a few months ago, and has been working with Culver City to provide enhanced integration of information and mapping. I think the key […]

Another GIS Web Mapping Application – OVOV-NET

OVOV-NET is specifically geared toward the Santa Clarita Valley Plan Update Program, One Valley One Vision, covering the unincorporated areas of the Santa Clarita Valley in Los Angeles County. The site is specific to this area (a different approach than our countywide sites) and it shows information on proposed land use and circulation. The site […]

For now, it is portfolio based where you document your 1) Education, 2) Experience, and 3) Contributions to the GIS profession. Minimum points are required […]
