March 04, 2010 -- GOLDSBORO, N.C. – Geographic Technologies Group (GTG) announces Wayne County, N.C.’s recent implementation of GTG’s MapNimbus, an easy-to-use online mapping solution for the public that provides citizens with information on what is happening in their community. Wayne County is currently using MapNimbus to show crime and sex offender data.
MapNimbus is an easy-to-use Google Maps-based interface that allows the public to view information in a variety of categories, including crime activity and sex offender data. It offers dynamic reporting tools that allow users to quickly analyze events that have occurred within a particular time.
MapNimbus has intuitive search capabilities allowing users to search by address or general location, such as parks or schools. MapNimbus also includes e-mail notification capabilities. MapNimbus will automatically e-mail users if there is an update within their predefined area, such as near their home or children’s school.
“GTG is excited to launch MapNimbus in Wayne County,” said Brent Beck, a GIS Solutions Provider at GTG. “As a company based out of Wayne County, we at GTG understand the benefits that our public Web portal will bring to the community. We are excited to help Wayne County with another initiative that will allow them to continue to promote a safer and better community for their citizens. With the ability to map a wide variety of information in a single, easy-to-use public Web portal, MapNimbus is sure to get citizens involved and excited about what is happening around them.”
MapNimbus will provide a noticeable return-on-investment at Wayne County, saving time and valuable resources for both citizens and County personnel. It gives citizens access to important and relevant information.
