Stormwater Utility Assessment: City of Shelton
Client: City of Shelton
Location: Shelton, Washington
After completing a GIS needs assessment, the City of Shelton prioritized the conversion and development of their GIS-based stormwater utility dataset. We developed a scope of work that would both accomplish the city’s conversion goals and integrate with their long-term GIS program goals.
We began with spatial data organization including:
- Compilation, conversion, and standardization of city and county datasets
- Acquisition, conversion, and standardization of stormwater network features from AutoCAD to ArcGIS
- Standardization of stormwater features to a common coordinate system
- Development of an appropriate stormwater model for continued management of stormwater infrastructure
Then we developed a custom web map application to allow secure access to spatial datasets. The app allows city users to interact with GIS datasets, edit stormwater layers, and query and print maps. Training was provided to city staff members in addition to on-call support.
