Providing staff and users with new and innovative GIS-based services are core goals of a modern municipality. The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) faced a challenging information system migration from GeoMedia to an ESRI-based system, while also having to manage the complex daily operations of a fast growing municipality.
Tesera worked closely with RMWB on the project to provide assessment, direction and GIS support services. The new enterprise information systems implemented by RMWB were supported by Tesera’s efforts in building the outward facing services and web applications. The resulting Municipal Viewer provides a robust and intuitive web-map viewer that enables access to available data and other collaboration functions including a custom designed “Share Map” tool.
The Municipal Viewer provides a lightweight and scalable web app and GIS-based viewing platform. Users can begin with a tour of the app or jump right into using its features and tools. Whether it’s annotating and sharing a planned municipal project, or accessing Pictometry’s impressive high-resolution oblique imagery, the RMWB Municipal Viewer has been well received.
