Public Utilities Commission Integrates GIS into New Employee Orientation (ArcNews Online)

Water and Power Department for the City and County of San Francisco, California  

How does a large municipal water agency integrate GIS technology into its workforce training? The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) dives right in.

SFPUC recently began introducing a GIS module in its three-day mandatory new employee orientation. The training provides an overview of the enterprise GIS program with an introduction to the Web-based GIS Basemap Viewer application. "Our focus is to show new employees how they can use the GIS tools to do their daily jobs more efficiently," says SFPUC enterprise GIS coordinator Lily Dryden, whose division is conducting the training.
