Over the past few months, we have been working closely with several municipal fire departments across the U.S. to determine how GIS can support fire service personnel. Through this collaborative effort we have been able to determine the business needs of the Fire Service community and define the application priorities. Starting this month, we will be releasing a series of maps and apps to support municipal fire services. The first in the series will be the Fire Station Wall Map, the Fire Run Book, and the Pre-Fire Plan editing maps. Each shares the same Fire Service Basemap optimized for response activities and operational layers to support map editing and production. All three maps are part of a system built on top of the Local Government Information Model. The Fire Station Wall Map and Fire Run Book were published to the ArcGIS for Local Government Resource Center (and cross-referenced in the Public Safety module) last week and the Pre-Fire Plan editing map will be published soon.
Esri is committed to developing a community of partners that are actively implementing and extending ArcGIS for Local Government. To do so, Esri created an ArcGIS for Local Government Partner Specialty, within the Esri Partner Network, to make collaboration with partners repeatable and successful. The specialty is designed for partners focused on the local government marketplace that want to work more closely with Esri on the development and deployment of ArcGIS for Local Government.
Partners in the ArcGIS for Local Government Partner Specialty provide one or both of the following:
- Complementary applications that are based on the ArcGIS for Local Government solution
- ArcGIS for Local Government implementation services
Recently, several Esri partners have applied to be part of the Partner Specialty, and we are pleased to announce that we now have a growing network of partners that can assist Esri users to install, configure, and extend ArcGIS for Local Government. In the coming days, you’ll see these approved partners highlighted on the new ArcGIS for Local Government resource center.
As the year winds down, we wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for the participation and feedback this year. It’s been really exciting to see the user community embrace the maps and apps on the ArcGIS for Local Government resource center and provide feedback that will ultimately make these ArcGIS maps and apps better for everyone using them. The team really enjoys the ongoing dialog with our local government users and looks forward to working with each and every one of you in the near future.
In 2012, we’re excited to incorporate the functionality emerging in ArcGIS 10.1 and ArcGIS Online, along with what we learned in 2011 from you, into the ArcGIS for Local Government solution. And we’ve got some plans we’d like to share with you for 2012 that we hope will make your adoption and use of ArcGIS simpler and more successful.
