Algonquin receives GIS award

ALGONQUIN – The village has been recognized for its Geographic Information System (GIS) applications and their use in the day-to-day operations of various departments, according to a news release.

Environmental Systems Research Institute recognizes organizations that embrace GIS technology to improve the world and contribute to the GIS community with its Special Achievement in GIS Award.  Algonquin is one of 175 organizations recognized internationally and the only local government recognized in Illinois this year.

“Algonquin’s GIS clearly plays a large role in the village’s business process and operations,” said Fred Kreutzfeldt, an account manager with ESRI. “The Special Achievement in GIS Award recognizes Algonquin’s utilization of GIS to enhance communication, collaboration, operational efficiency and customer service.”

The village has used GIS for more than a decade and was the first municipality in Kane and McHenry counties to deploy a public GIS interactive map.

The Special Achievement in GIS Award recognizes Algonquin’s current initiatives, which are designed to provide enhanced mobile GIS technologies to aid both village staff and public users with real-time information on tablets and smart phones.

ESRI is an international supplier of GIS software and geodatabase management applications; they are based in Redlands, California.
