City selected for GIS award

The City of Westminster has been selected to receive the distinguished Special Achievement in Geographic Information Systems (SAG) award from Esri, a global company that develops GIS mapping software, solutions, services, map apps and data.

This award is given to agencies around the world to recognize their outstanding work with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology.

The city stood out from more than 100,000 others during the selection process.

Being selected for this award is a very significant achievement and illustrates some of the tremendous accomplishments the city has had with GIS over the years.

The award focuses on specific successes achieved by the Public Works and Utilities Department in GIS connectivity using ArcGIS Online when in the field.

This allows field crews to gain efficiencies by always being connected to mapping data even when outside of the office.
