Esri Indonesia Helps with GIS Growth and other Government GIS News

The Geospatial Information Agency, in close partnership with Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) and Esri Indonesia launched the ITB-Esri Community Centre in order to facilitate the development of the geospatial industry through synergies between the government, academe and the private sector.

Remember all those GIS demos with a buffer to find properties within a distance of a new development? Here's a real life version from Souix Falls, SD. Developers had planned a small development with 40 or 50 units. But, they changed their mind and the city council said ok. But the neighbors want another vote.

The city GIS department will verify the number of landowners within 250 feet of the property. Signatures from at least 40 percent are needed to prompt a second vote. In that vote, at least six of the eight councilors would need to agree to change the plans for the development.

Williams County, ND officials report more than 8,400 visits to its maps times since July, "when the county updated its Ersi [sic] software and the company began offering a free Geographical Information Systems, or GIS, viewer."
