URISA Announces 2012 Exemplary Systems in Government Award Winners

Des Plaines, IL (August 20, 2012) - URISA is pleased to announce the recipients of 2012 URISA Exemplary Systems in Government (ESIG) Awards. Since 1980, URISA’s ESIG Awards have recognized exceptional achievements in the application of information technology that have improved the delivery and quality of government services. URISA congratulates all of the participants in the 2012 Exemplary Systems in Government Award program. The recognized systems will be celebrated during the Awards Breakfast at GIS-Pro 2012: URISA's 50th Annual Conference in Portland. This year's competition resulted in two exemplary systems in the Enterprise Systems category and one distinguished system.

ENTERPRISE SYSTEMS - Systems in this category are outstanding and working examples of using information systems technology in a multi-department environment as part of an integrated process. These systems exemplify effective use of technology yielding widespread improvements in the process(es) and/or service(s) involved and/or cost savings to the organization.

2012 ESIG Winners :

·       Orange County’s Addressing and Land Development Information Network (ALADIN)
Submitted by Louis Schoolkate, Orange County GIS Coordinator, Orlando, Florida       

This solution was deemed exemplary by the ESIG Review Committee because it not only integrates GIS into addressing, zoning, document management and land development systems, but it also integrates GIS into the daily workflows of management and front-line staff to facilitate decision-making. Aladin further exemplifies success in the way it enables Orange County, the world’s number one tourist destination, to not only support its permanent population of one million, but it also allows the County to meet the annual demands and expectations presented by 52 million tourists.  Orange County, like many government agencies over the past years, has had to deal with annual budget cuts and staffing reductions.  Aladin, because of the efficiencies built into its workflows, enables County staff to continue to deliver the same level of customer service with fewer resources.  Projects like Aladin, and Orange County’s vision to pursue integrated enterprise GIS systems, exemplify excellence in GIS.  The Aladin system developed by Orange County is a strong example of successful GIS integration and a model for URISA to share.

·       PSMA Australia’s PSMA System
Submitted by: Kate Mann, Communications Manager, PSMA Australia, Griffith ACT Australia
 

This solution was deemed exemplary by the ESIG Review Committee because it involves the engagement, collaboration and partnership between all government in Australia, including federal, six state and two territorial governments, in the delivery of a single system for the creating and facilitating access to national datasets for government, industry and community use. The provision of GIS data by the PSMA system isn’t just a cool GIS project, it actually has a significant impact on the country as a whole as it contributes to a variety of economic, social and environmental benefits.  The PSMA system was developed with the intention of being a world-class system that enables the collection, standardization, integration, manipulation and delivery of GIS data in an automated fashion.  The example of inter-government collaboration and the scale in which PSMA operates and because the PSMA system has revolutionized the manner in which data is gathered, integrated and disseminated make it an exemplary system.

2012 Distinguished System :

·       Will County Master Address Point System
