GISi to implement their GIS Fire Mobile Solution Framework for Cherokee County, GA

June 29, 2010 -- GISi has been selected to implement their GIS Fire Mobile Solution Framework (GFMSF) at Cherokee County, Ga. The GFMSF will leverage the county’s existing ROCKET system (laptops connected to a wireless network with GPS). Powered by ESRI’s ArcGIS Server Mobile technology, the GFMSF will accomplish the primary objective of providing the Fire Department with immediate access to up-to-date information, regardless of their location, and offers a range of mobile GIS field mapping solutions that apply these current technologies to help users make sound decisions in the field. Additionally, the GFMSF provides routing, preplan tools and is scalable for future field edits that can be synchronized to a command center and real-time edits from the field providing command and control with information to make effective decisions.

Joseph Woycke, the Director of GIS for Cherokee County said “our vision for our Fire Department has always been centered on the concept of getting access to information (GIS data, preplans, floor plans, etc.) in the field. We’ve done an excellent job of getting all of the information up to date and relevant, but the final component to realizing our vision is the GFMSF. The GFMSF will bring all of this information together and deliver it through an easy-to-use, mobile application”.

In addition to the mobile fire solution, GISi will perform a GIS Healthcheck for the County. The GIS HealthCheck is a targeted diagnostic tool designed to efficiently capture information about the client’s GIS system architecture, GIS data environment, applications, utilization and organizational environment. The GIS HealthCheck also delivers recommendations and a GIS road map that supports organizations meeting their strategic and business goals. Cherokee County has an enterprise GIS but like many GIS departments, doesn’t have time to take a step back and do a technical diagnostic, or create a roadmap.

“My day is primarily filled with system administration duties and keeping our data up to date. I see the GIS HealthCheck as a tool that can not only offer a 2nd opinion from a technical standpoint, but also deliver a roadmap facilitating GIS adoption throughout the County with an emphasis on opportunities to streamline workflows and become more efficient. Finally, the GIS HealthCheck will help me prioritize my projects,” said Woycke.

Cherokee County, GA is located about 30 minutes north of Atlanta and is included in the Atlanta metropolitan statistical area. The county seat is Canton, GA. As of 2000, the population was 141,903. The 2009 Census Estimate placed the population at 215,084.
