Geovironment has been preparing an inventory of Valley Wide’s data and getting an understanding of what they would like to be able to do with the data in a GIS. Valley Wide has a limited budget for implementation so Geovironment has been working on developing a more cost effective solution while maintaining as many advanced features available in a modern GIS.
