Raising the Value of a Local GIS with a GIS-centric Work Order System
Authors: Justin Cure, Jeremy White
Longview, TX GIS was formed in 2005 to serve the geographic needs of the entire City. In 2008, Public Works asked for help with a new work order system. Cityworks by Azteca Systems was picked because the GIS is at the center of the work order management system. Public Works went live in 2009 and the rest is history. It is now used across the City and by citizens. Longview had a good enterprise GIS, but a GIS-centric work order management system made the GIS more valuable than ever.
