Wellington, Fla., Spatially Enables Its Land Information Systems Dec 22, 2004 By News Story 'This is a whole new way for the employees at the Village of Wellington to work with their land-based applications and to serve the public'
The Village of Wellington, Fla. contracted with SunGard HTE and business partner Geographic Technologies Group Inc (GTG) to provide an ESRI ArcIMS-based dynamic mapping solution called LookingGlass Web (LGweb) which allows village staff to work with database information in conjunction with their Geographic Information System (GIS). This integration now allows for real-time GIS access to information that was previously only viewable in a database format. Village staff can now access information concerning building permits, work orders, planning and zoning cases, business licenses, and utility customers directly from the GIS.
GTG's Florida Regional Manager, Brian Sovik, stated, "This is a whole new way for the employees at the Village of Wellington to work with their land-based applications and to serve the public." The Village of Wellington has been using SunGard HTE systems to manage and track departmental services for a number of years and has had a mature GIS department for some time. With the integration of the SunGard HTE database and the GIS, the Village can now leverage both of these investments to the benefit of their citizens in term of more efficient and responsive service.
