Geographic Technologies Group, Inc. (GTG) continues to build upon their GIS expertise to improve citizen access to government. Their newly released Geo Blade Web is guaranteed to make a difference in communities and local government organizations across the nation.
Geo Blade Web, a highly customizable web application, gives the public the ability to access a variety of information about their community through any given number of websites set up by a local government organization. These sites can include public safety information (crime statistics and sex offender information), tax centric information (property and assessment values), as well as other information such as parks and recreation data, voting precincts, school systems, bus routes, hospital locations, and land marks. Since this information is available through a web interface, citizens can access it 24/7 from any computer with Internet access.
Geo Blade Web gives the public the ability to quickly gather information about their community with a few simple clicks. Along with the standard GIS functionality, Geo Blade Web contains a sophisticated toolset which includes: querying both spatial and attribute data, reporting capabilities, navigational tools, spatial analysis, and report generation. It also has the ability to be integrated with known mapping sites, such as Google Maps, MapQuest, and Microsoft Live Maps. Geo Blade Web provides an easy-to-use administrative tool which allows for generation of customized searches, popup map tips, and consumption of web services.
“Geo Blade Web is unique in its ability to connect citizens with government 24/7,” said Curt Hinton, CEO of GTG. “It is possible for the public to access any information about their community. Local government agencies will find that Geo Blade Web presents a clear return on investment, saving them time and money by providing citizens the ability to access information on their own.”
