Richmond, VA – October 5, 2010 – Timmons Group, a leader in geospatial and engineering consulting services, recently completed a project to review York Region’s corporate geospatial information infrastructure and develop a project portfolio to advance and optimize the technology infrastructure to meet business needs 3 years out.
Working with the Region’s Geomatics and Information Technology Services Branches, the two-part project served to evaluate the existing conditions, act on any low-effort/high value improvement opportunities, and also chart a road map for continued success. The work plan involved examining existing systems, developing system architecture diagrams, performing stress-tests of web map applications & services, reviewing the supporting processes and operational tools used, and interviewing business units to link future business drivers and initiatives that would impose new requirements on the corporate geospatial information infrastructure. Specific topic areas covered during the discovery and planning phases included monitoring and alerting, performance, storage, redundancy and high-availability, accessibility and system support tools.
York Region has a high-performing geospatial program currently, and, taking into consideration the defined project portfolio, York Region will be proactive to business needs and effective in the delivery of location-based services to the corporation.
This project will be presented at the ESRI Canada Conference, October 6th-7th.The presentation of project findings will focus on the roadmap outcomes and resulting project portfolio defined to move Geomatics forward.
