Implementing ArcGIS 8.1 for Redistricting
Author(s): Robert David Andrew, Larry Boden
DynCorp (as system integrator) and (Esri as developer) designed, implemented, and tested a major upgrade at the Department of Justice (DOJ). This provides a richer, faster, more manageable system for DOJ to perform its responsibilities under the Voting Rights Act. The paper describes "lessons learned" in going from UNIX workstations to Windows NT desktop, from ArcInfo 7 and shapefiles to ArcInfo 8 and ArcSDE against versioned Oracle database.
