St. Augustine Geodatabase Implementation

St. Augustine, Florida  |   November 2012

Who Would Have Thought High Tech GIS Thrives In A City Founded in 1565?

St. Augustine, Florida has been owned by the Spanish, the British and, since 1809, the United States. But what really runs this quaint historic town is information. Especially geospatial information which enhances operations, improves decision making and provides better public service. Recently, the city needed a technology enhancement by converting from a personal geodatabase for their GIS to one based on central enterprise. Jones Edmunds was brought aboard to put together a plan and a strategy for implementation.

To begin this information upgrade, we gathered lots of it. By attending multiple on-site meetings with city personnel to discuss current work and data flows, our team delivered thorough recommendations to streamline a once cumbersome, inefficient process. After rolling out an upgrade to software, new servers and training, St. Augustine was able to make well-informed decisions and better serve its residents as well as its many, many visitors. While this city has a history dating back to the 16th century, Jones Edmunds is helping it thriving well into the 21st.
