Latest Skill Requred for Municipal GIS Managers

Another of those precautions was the city acting on [City Councilor Marty] Lorrey's motion to get the bridge included in GPS systems because some drivers have said the systems have not alerted them to take a different route.

[Eric] Eby [the city's transportation engineer] has been working with the city's coordinator of geographic-information systems to notify the services that provide information to mobile GPS systems of the height limits of the span.


That quote is from an article about a low bridge in the City of Lowell, Massachusetts. Many trucks get stuck there and long term plans are looking at increasing the clearance, but in the meantime, "the GPS systems" must be changed. Clearly, that's a new task for local GIS coordinators.
