Forsyth County Georgia Selects OneGIS to Implement Orion Technology’s OnPoint™ Web-GIS

Atlanta GA, December 21, 2005 – OneGIS is pleased to announce that it has received a purchase order from Forsyth County Georgia for the sale, implementation and maintenance of OnPoint™, a web-GIS from Orion Technology that allows Internet browser access to both spatial and non-spatial datasets. Forsyth County is a suburban county located north of Atlanta with an estimated current population of approximately 132,000. The new OnPoint system will be an addition to the county’s current Geographic Information System (GIS), which is based on the ArcGIS® platform from ESRI. OneGIS will install and configure the new web-GIS to work with the county’s existing datasets. The resulting implementation will be county-wide and will allow access to many of the county’s records now residing in their Oracle® based ArcSDE® Geodatabase. These will include planning, parcel, and utility data.

OneGIS is a reseller and implementer of OnPoint as well as other application programs from third-party development firms that extend the capabilities of the ESRI ArcGIS platform. OnPoint specifically extends the capabilities of the ESRI Internet Map Server product, ArcIMS™, by making it easy to configure, implement and maintain access to datasets both in the Geodatabase and in other unrelated tables.

Mr. Chris Cirillo, president of OneGIS, commented, “OneGIS is pleased to be able to offer GIS services to Forsyth County, since I personally live in the county and have known them for many years, ever since the time I worked for ESRI. This OnPoint implementation will extend their current ESRI system and will further enhance the use of their Miner & Miner ArcFM™ application. We are confident that the increased access that OnPoint will provide will pay back many times over for the county and will prove invaluable for the employees and citizens.”

Mr. John Kilgore, GIS Manager at Forsyth County added, “OneGIS has supported the county’s utility GIS in the past and the applications that they provided produced successful results, so it was an easy choice to have them return for this project. OneGIS and Orion’s OnPoint will take the Forsyth County GIS team to the next level and should easily meet our goal of providing a great interface into our large repository of geospatial data. The result should be of great value to our staff and to the citizens of the county.”
