Rancho Cucamonga Receives Esri President's Award

City Recognized for Innovative GIS Applications in Public Safety, Sustainability, and Quality of Life

Redlands, California—July 15, 2014—Rancho Cucamonga, a Southern California city of nearly 200,000 people, was honored with the Esri President's Award for outstanding GIS work in planning and sustaining growth. The award was presented Monday, July 14, by Esri president Jack Dangermond at the Esri User Conference in San Diego.

"The City of Rancho Cucamonga shines brightly through its innovative use of GIS applications," said Dangermond. "Rancho Cucamonga has a dedicated enterprise GIS division that serves as a better way to maintain, manage, and share geographic information throughout city departments including code enforcement, engineering, police, fire, planning, and community services."

When Rancho Cucamonga became a city in 1977, community leaders and residents were concerned about housing, education, public safety, and fire and flood control as well as maintaining the rural, historic character of the region. City staff started using GIS in 1985 to help address those concerns. Now, even in the face of unprecedented growth, the city still focuses on public safety, sustainable development, and good quality of life.

The city's Rancho Enterprise Geographic Information Systems (REGIS) group provides maps, data, and analysis to fire and police departments as well as the Emergency Operations Center. The REGIS group also developed user-friendly Internet and intranet mapping applications for city staff and the public. Easy-to-access information helps increase department productivity and provides residents with timely and valuable city information and services. Available maps include City Atlas; Zoning and General Plan; and a GIS basemap depicting background reference infrastructure such as landforms, roads, parcels, facilities, and political boundaries.

"GIS is an important part of the daily operations and functions in our city," said John Gillison, city manager of Rancho Cucamonga. "We are able to analyze, query, and display data to provide timely information needed to make better decisions. The city's GIS department handles a large number of map and data requests from all departments plus local residents, schools, and other outside agencies."
