January 16, 2012 -- Destination Southfield, a successful implementation of Esri’s ArcGIS for Local Government initiative, includes the portal, maps and apps, and the local government information model. The City of Southfield, MI has a large enterprise GIS that incorporates data from various sources including Southfield’s assessing system, Southfield’s infrastructure management program, and Oakland County GIS. The new portal is a landing pad for City staff and citizens to get access to maps and apps. The maps and apps are organized into a gallery and around information and services citizens need in order to do business with the City. With ArcGIS Server, Cloud, Information Model and maps and apps gallery in place, the City is launching new maps and apps more frequently, making the GIS more relevant.
