Mecklenberg County, NC, Explains the Vital Role of GIS
While celebrating 2014 International GIS Day, long-time Pictometry customer Mecklenburg County, NC, created a video to remind us of the vital role that GIS plays in all areas of the county.
They have integrated GIS into almost every department in the city and county government using it for activities such as creating a quality of life application, a flood application and a livable communities application – all based on computerized mapping solutions. They use Pictometry oblique imagery for tax assessment and combine it with GIS to aid SWAT teams in search and rescue.
The integration of imagery and GIS helps tell a story and solve problems, enabling each agency able to do their jobs better with more information. Watch the video here.
