Lynchburg's Online GIS Receiving Recognition
Lynchburg's newly revamped GIS system is receiving recognition in both the GIS blogosphere and public media. A recent News and Advance article focuses on the new features available in the public viewer including user markup tools, export tools, and links to Google Street View and Bing Maps. A recent post on All Points Blog includes a discussion of the public viewer and the intranet functions available to City staff. The blog post views the application as an indicator of the growing trend of moving from desktop apps to enterprise web GIS. Both applications are hosted and maintained internally by the City, with support provided under contract with the system developer WorldView.
