The City of Waco, Texas Selects Geographic Technologies Group (GTG) to Implement GIS Software Solutions and Services

April 18, 2007 -- Longview, TX - Geographic Technologies Group, Inc. (GTG) announced today that the City of Waco, Texas has procured LGviewer, LGweb, LGaddress, and LGviewer work order module from GTG’s LG GIS software suite. These applications will serve to expand the City’s software platform and enhance the City’s services to its citizens.

LGviewer provides a set of GIS tools in a simple easy to use desktop application. LGviewer allows for visualization of land management information such as utility meters, occupational licenses, work orders, building permits and code enforcement violations. Local government professionals have long desired the ability to map and analyze the spatial distribution of all data that is tracked within their enterprise IT systems. LGviewer is designed to GIS enable corporate databases in tandem with existing GIS data to provide a powerful set of tools for visualization and analysis.

LGweb is an Intranet GIS data browser that seamlessly integrates with the City’s HTE platform. As an HTE business partner, GTG provides several products that provide a GIS interface for many of HTE’s land and public safety modules. The City’s implementation of LGweb will extend and enhance the City’s GIS, enabling the City to leverage existing technology investments for use as a unifying technology.

LGaddress allows users to maintain address points, pass valuable GIS data to their land database, and ensures a 100% match rate of the land database modules via an intuitive ArcEngine based GIS application.

James Kelt, Regional Manager for GTG, stated, “A true enterprise wide GIS solution must start at the top of any organization and provide data, software, related database information to a broad range of departmental users. The City of Waco has invested in the LG product line to take their exiting GIS initiatives to the next level. The LG tools that the City has purchased will allow them the graphically represent all of their Land Management locations in a GIS format in a highly efficient manner. By spatially enabling their databases, the City is now able to run high level reports, queries, map creation and analysis that will make each department more effective and efficient.”
