Franklin County Alabama chooses ROK for ArcGIS Server Hosting28-Feb-2012 We are pleased to welcome Franklin County, AL as a ArcGIS Server Hosting Client. Franklin County, Alabama is working toward becoming more transparent to the community by launching a Facebook and Twitter account in the coming days and more importantly, by launching Virtual Franklin County on February 2nd.
Virtual Franklin County was built for the purpose of communicating with the public. We will be able to show the public – property information, voting poll locations, bridges with school bus weight restrictions, road closings, capital improvements such as utility enhancements and road resurfacing, among many others. In addition to the “need to know” information, we are including – recreational facilities and events, historical documents and photos, and demographic information, just to name a few of the map layers. We have added widgets, available at the ESRI ArcGIS Viewer for Flex Resource Center, in order to add functionality to the application and allow the user more interaction with the information. This is a very dynamic application, as we will be adding and updating information on a regular basis. Click here to see the viewer.
"Our goal at Franklin County was to configure an ArcGIS Viewer for Flex application, design a map for the application, and to have it all published and hosted on a tight deadline. With the help of ROK, we managed to meet the deadline with ease. Their customer service is phenomenal. Always helpful and friendly and pulled me out of a jam on more than one occasion. They were even there to help late into the evening after normal business hours. Not to mention the fact that we are thoroughly impressed by their technical capabilities. We have been told by many users of our application, including seasoned GIS professionals, how impressed they are at the drawing speed of our image cache and map service. For these reasons, we will look to ROK for any additional support needed for our GIS efforts."
