About the GIS Department
Traditionally, the City has operated with departments individually handling the management of their GIS resources and data management. As the City’s GIS needs and interest have grown, the need for an organizational GIS Department was identified. In 2011, a number of City employees from various departments, some using GIS and some not, came together to develop a GIS strategic plan. As the first step in the implementation of this plan, a GIS Department was established in February of 2012.
Taking a hybrid approach, the new GIS department takes a ‘corporate’ support role within the City of Thomasville, operating as a neutral department in the implementation of organization-wide GIS-related activities. Departments which heavily rely on GIS, such as Planning, Engineering and Utilities will retain their in-house GIS personnel, which will work with the GIS Department to establishing an Enterprise GIS. The GIS department also serves in a support capacity to departments which need minor GIS-related assistance.
The GIS department offers no direct services to the general public at this time; however, future growth and development of the GIS Department and the City’s GIS capability may provide for the expansion of services to external customers. Through the development of a robust and stable organization-wide GIS indirect services can be realized through improved services by our many GIS-using departments.
