Varion Systems To Implement Automatic Vehicle Location System For Douglas County, Nebraska

Chicago, IL – January 15, 2007 - Varion Systems, the software development and value-added reseller division of GeoAnalytics, Inc, has been chosen by the Douglas County Engineer’s Office to implement a GPS-based AVL system and Web-based GIS tracking and reporting application.

Varion Systems will implement tracServe, their Web-based GIS solution for automated vehicle tracking and related operations monitoring. Powered by ESRI’s ArcIMS technology, tracServe is a semi-custom software solution that integrates with enterprise GIS data layers stored in ArcSDE. Varion Systems will partner with CompassCom Software Corporation, an industry leader in mobile asset tracking. CompassCom will provide their CompassLDE Server AVL database software, in-vehicle hardware, and related communications and system support for the vehicle-tracking portion of the project. The tracServe solution will integrate seamlessly with CompassLDE Server and provide a full suite of capabilities for real-time and historical-playback reporting. Varion Systems’ services will include installation of tracServe within the County’s ArcIMS Server, integration to their GIS application server to access existing spatial data via ArcSDE, establishing communication links to the CompassLDE Server database, and final testing and validation that the system is operational.

“The tracServe and CompassLDE Server AVL combination will provide us with tools to more efficiently and effectively manage the tracking of fleet vehicles for several operational areas in the County Engineer’s office and the Omaha Public Works Department, including snow removal, centerline painting, curb cleaning, motor grading, and survey crews. The further integration of AVL with our enterprise geospatial data enables us to leverage our investments in GIS,” said Mike Schonlau, GIS Coordinator for the City of Omaha and Douglas County.
