propels ADC to be on the leading-edge of industry trends and technologies.
They’ve helped ADC to successfully bridge the gap between the web and GIS, allowing us to offer products and services that combine the two, as well as services focused solely on programming.
Using the Agile approach to development, with an iterative "evolving milestone" process, we reduce development time and deliver better products. Even if your projects have little or no specifications (or specifications that may change), our process will lead to the best possible results.
Tools and technology we employ includes:
The simplified delivery and presentation of the large volumes of information in today’s world is...Read More...
generally the result of linking together disparate and often physically remote information sources or collections. In short, there was a lot of previous work and a lot happening behind the scenes when you run your web map searches, whether it be in Google Maps or in one of the ADC WebGUIDE sites.
GIS, as a software system, is a natural integrator of information as maps are the perfect vehicle for simultaneously displaying different, yet related pieces of information. When a land parcel is displayed on a map, for example, we can also display ownership, taxation and permit information, in addition to other characteristics of the property, such as infrastructure details like electrical and water supply line details. Since this information is generally created and maintained by different departments or organizations, steps must be taken to ‘connect’ all these information sources.
ADC GIS Consultants and Application Developers have a long history of devising logical and appropriate strategies for integrating the systems of information that form success geospatial applications. Whether it at a large scale (US Army Corps of Engineers, InfoGroup) or small (WI county government), ADC staff has the technical knowledge and proven experience to combine your rich collections of information in single, cohesive mapping solutions.

Advanced Web PortalsWe have gained valuable experience in designing web portals for your members-only or subscription...
based sites through projects such as the SMARTT Network, Elite EXTRA, DCPFY, and Nature Mapping. We possess the knowledge to design secure login areas and can integrate portals into previously existing sites as well as new sites created by our ADC4Web Division.
On retail sites web portals can provide your clients with a level of exclusivity, increasing loyalty as many people enjoy being a part of a club or membership. Other uses for web portals include the ability for an administrative management portion of the website. For example, EAGL-i, a site selection product, has an “Administrative Dashboard” portal. The Dashboard is a place where site managers can login and add new sites, manage existing sites, and view the application as it appears client-side.

geographic information. Behind all the mapping information that is proliferated on the Web and via other sharing means, there exists vast sets of GIS data, or geodata. This geodata must be compiled, transformed and stored in such a way to allow streamlined and efficient access to what is generally a complex informational model.
ADC combines its almost 15 years of experience with GIS data modeling and administration, along with its foundation in database management and application development techniques to provide sound, yet advanced services for designing and implementing your GIS data storage platform.
We have years of experience in migration planning and execution as software platforms and data...Read More...
formats continue to evolve. Importance is placed on maintaining data quality and integrity as the migration is performed. Planning to switch platforms or implement a major software upgrade? Contact us today for a complimentary migration needs assessment!
ArcGIS Server Implementation
ADC’s application developers use ArcGIS Server to build responsive, easy-to-use applications that...Read More...
leverage common web technologies. ArcGIS Server provides an open set of APIs, which allow developers to consume services published by ArcGIS Server.
ArcGIS Server reduces software deployment costs for our customers and disseminates geographic knowledge to improve decision making. It helps standardize geographic processing techniques and workflow scenarios, reduce software deployment costs, and ease implementation burdens. The fully integrated framework of ArcGIS means that ArcGIS Server allows our GIS professionals to improve project collaboration and quality at every step, from project prototype to completion.
From small communities to large jurisdictions and from federal agencies to international corporations, we’ve used ArcGIS to build custom management systems that help customers of all sizes and jurisdictions streamline their workflows.
Website DesignADC’s website design division, ADC4Web, is comprised of a team of talented programmers,...
developers, and graphic artists. We have successfully designed websites for both public and private sector clients, from small businesses to a county assessor to non-profit organizations.
Our websites focus on clarity, ease-of-navigation, performance, and image/branding. We are experienced in integrating many types of applications or “widgets” into the websites we design, such as locational maps, interactive web forms, live chat, calendars, audio/video players, social media connections, and more. In addition to these types of “add-on” applications, we have experience in implementing e-commerce solutions for online stores and services.
We are a geographic information systems firm at our core and we possess expertise and years of experience in implementing web mapping services (WMS) into the websites we design. For our public sector clients, a WMS can provide valuable resources for the citizens of your municipality by providing information such as parcel information and document procurement, for-sale site selection, locational analysis (demographics, community expenditure statistics, etc), and much more. We can design a custom WMS to fit your needs and showcase your community.

IT Support and HostingOur hosting facilities located in Eau Claire, WI possess secure servers which are in a secure climate...
controlled environment where temperature, humidity, server load, network load, and uptime are monitored 24/7. ADC’s servers are set up in a load balanced configuration that ensures the highest rate of uptime, availability, and redundancy. Our servers are on a nightly scheduled backup routine to ensure that data is archived. In the event of a hardware related breakdown, all of ADC’s servers have a same day on-site warranty for hardware replacement.
We have both UPS and generator power backup systems in place to handle any sort of power disruption, whether it is short-term or long-term. ADC’s core network is made up entirely of the latest Cisco and HP Procurve technologies, providing the security, speed and reliability that our customers look for and expect. We have in place IDS/IPS systems for monitoring attacks on our network so we can keep up with the latest trends in security threats. We not only have multiple data centers for redundancy, each of our data centers use multiple Internet Service Providers (ISPs). This gives us a redundant connection to the outside world in the event of a cable cut or hardware failure.
ADC’s Web and IT staff monitor new virus threats and security risks on a daily basis. Updates are performed as appropriate to ensure that our OSs, software stacks, and Anti-Virus are providing the most current protection possible against these threats.
In the event of a system outage, monitoring systems automatically notify our IT and Web teams of issues so that we can react to these situations in a timely manner. ADC has been able to maintain an uptime and availability rate of over 99 percent during the past five years.
Each of our redundant data centers has the latest technology in fire suppression systems, which allows us to protect our customer’s and ADC’s investments.
