We are pleased to welcome the City of Pensacola as an ArcGISSM Server Hosting client. Pensacola is currently using CityView, Pensacola's private label of ROK’s GOMaps, to view, analyze, and serve all its GIS data. Pensacola has limited open space for new construction and the city needed access to organized information for business and occupation licenses, code enforcement violations, and other documents managed by the city. ROK built a custom solution for the city based on ArcGIS.
“We focused heavily on reporting and analysis from a parcel based perspective,” says Paul Kelly, GIS Manager for Pensacola City . “Currently there are 5 separate reports that can be run which inform the user of a parcel’s Council District, Zoning, Future Land Use, Garbage and Recycling pick up days, as well as dozens of special districts such as the Airport Noise Zone, Historic District, Enterprise Zone, and so on.”
To get Pensacola started quickly, we coordinated with Escambia County, Florida, with whom we had recently created an Address tool. Having experienced success with that application, the county allowed Pensacola the use of the tool for customization. Implementing an address tool that can be used without a map interface leveraged Pensacola’s investment in GIS while providing users quick access to GIS data through reporting.
“The GOMaps platform is future proof to accommodate the growing needs of Pensacola,” says Kelly. “It allows for growth with the addition of new data and analysis. ”
