History of Geo3.0
Back in 1988, our first software solutions centered around keeping municipal databases up-to-date. Subscription access to Land Use ordinances and Tax Maps led to the creation of Geographic Information Systems for local government. Our product was called National Geomatica. Once created, the GIS map was largely static but the data behind the map, the dog licenses, building permits, health licenses, DPW work orders, etc., would change hundreds of times per day. New processes were needed to keep that data current, else the map would quickly become useless.
Geo3.0 As We Know It
Geo3.0, our third iteration of National Geomatica, expands on the idea of constant change, recognizing that the people and departments that make up government are as fast-changing as the data they generate.
The software that municipal governments use to manage the work they do needs to be easily changed, updated, and modified to fit new people, new skill levels, and new requirements. The software also enables towns to become more client-centric (citizen centric) and opens the towns to 24/7 access by the citizenry.
The core idea of Geo3.0 is customization for each town, each department and each person in that department. This product has more than 300 individual software applications, or apps, that are used as a basis to begin customization work. Unwanted and unnecessary elements are stripped out while new elements, as required by each town, are added. The end result is custom software, created from the wish list of each client and based on the core apps we have already developed.
Municipalities are all so different! While each may perform the same tasks such as issuing licenses and permits, performing inspections, and managing far-flung spatial assets, each municipality needs its own customized software for optimized performance.
