GIS Needs Assessment: Stormwater Utility
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 existing 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
Additionally, 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. On-call support was provided in addition to for city staff members.
