Track: Ports and Maritime
Authors: Jennifer Radcliff, Eric Patrick
The Port of Tacoma was awarded a security grant to develop their Enterprise GIS for the purposes of improving Port Security. In order to obtain current operational data for Security users, GIS data, tools and viewers were also developed for non-Security departments to create an incentive for them to keep data up to date. This resulted in an accurate and sustainable common operating picture for Security while simultaneously empowering other departments through their participation in GIS.
