Utilities from a 3D perspective; Past, Present, Future
Track: Tribal/Indigenous GIS Programs
Authors: Tomas Riesco GISP
From the ground up, the GIS team from the Seminole Tribe of Florida has built a solid Utility Infrastructure Information System from GIS enterprise to 3D modeling of the underground utility world.
Before 2005 the Utility information was in silos and in different data formats, causing the Tribe money and time to get information from data that did not represent the real world. Today it is a well-organized and accurate GIS enterprise that helps the Tribe to make smart business decisions.
