-- PlanGraphics made final delivery of server hardware and customized application software to the Commonwealth of Kentucky's Department of Emergency Management. This system provides the Commonwealth with data and Web-based applications to support the Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) that serves data to local officials and responders in a 10-county area, state emergency management personnel, and federal agencies (e.g., FEMA and the Army). PlanGraphics' delivery of the CSEPP system was a total turnkey solution -- beginning with system design, database design and data development, hardware and software acquisition, system configuration, application development, Web hosting and final switchover to the client. Development of the system was partially funded by a grant from the Kentucky Science & Engineering Foundation and the Public Safety and Security Institute for Technology at Eastern Kentucky University's Justice and Safety Center. -- The Washington, D.C., Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) has extended PlanGraphics' contract for project management services and programmatic guidance to its CapStat program. The project focuses on developing an interoperable infrastructure for emergency data exchange among the 17 jurisdictions of the National Capital Region. This interoperability is being developed through the deployment of "service- oriented architecture" technologies and the development of Web services that convert raw data into usable intelligence for emergency managers. -- PlanGraphics has also recently completed two phases of work with Washington, D.C.-based management consultants Winbourne & Costas to help Fairfax County, Virginia, prepare to procure a new computer-assisted dispatch/records management system (CAD/RMS) for use by all of the County's public safety and emergency management agencies. PlanGraphics' activities involved reviewing the County's current GIS and public safety capabilities and future needs and concluded with the development of both technical and institutional recommendations required for public safety GIS interoperability.Since it was established in 1979, PlanGraphics has provided information technology (IT) and geographic information system (GIS) services to public safety organizations in management and technical capacities. "We are proud to include D.C. OCTO, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and Fairfax County among our successful undertakings," said John C. Antenucci, the company's president and CEO.
