With thousands of employees serving students in Wisconsin’s largest city, Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) looked to present GIS data – focused map layers and digital cartographic products – in a user-friendly and cost-effective manner to administrators and MPS decision makers.
With ADC staff support, MPS implemented a more robust and organized GIS solution that consisted of an enterprise geodatabase using a modern server database, and then spatial data services and applications. ADC was heavily involved in the design and implementation of the MPS geodatabase, which allowed the incorporation of a large amount of data residing in non-GIS databases, into GIS presentation and analysis. ADC staff guided the design, installation, and configuration on MPS servers, and trained MPS staff on proper management and administration of the software.
MPS staff are currently using the applications as the central component for a series of internal professional development training sessions on decision-making and GIS.
