Houston finds a way to consolidate GIS data from city agencies

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

A shining example of collaboration comes from Max Samfield, deputy director of the Houston Planning and Development Department, who chose a hybrid approach that requires city agencies to add basic data to a new enterprise GIS, but lets them choose whether to publish more specialized data to the system.

The goal was to “create a repository of newly accurate GIS data delivered to end-users from a central server farm. Agencies then use that scrubbed enterprise GIS data as a foundation on which to build more layers of data using their own specialized information.”
