State GIS Apps Win 2009 Governor's Technology Awards
Two state agency GIS applications received recognition at the 11th Annual Commonwealth of Virginia Innovative Technology Symposium (COVITS) in Williamsburg. The Virginia Department of Emergency Management, VIPER application won the IT as Efficiency Driver Award.
An Honorable Mention in the same category was given to the Virginia Department of Forestry for its Forest Protection and Mobile Computing (IFRIS-FPMC) Project.
Both applications utilize some of the latest in GIS technology. VIPER uses ArcGIS Server and the FlexViewer. FPMC uses ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Mobile with mobile replication. Congratulations to VDEM and VDOF!
