Due to a need to improve their functionality in many segments, one of the recent trends in digitalization within local government infrastructures such as city councils, governmental agencies, and departments is the growing use of cloud-based software solutions. This particularly affects the planning, public works, and services departments that need to have adequate tools for data management. 
GIS Cloud is used by government organizations and teams for data visualization (creating public maps with the data on infrastructure such as schools, hospitals, roads, parks, etc.) and collaboration within various departments (roadworks, urban planning and parcelization, park infrastructure, and management…). Having all of that on a custom map in real time might be a game-changer in creating an effective future workflow.

Civil Engineering
The many benefits of GIS technology have been recognized by the civil engineering industry and implemented in various projects. GIS allows engineers to pair data with geographic maps, allowing them to make more accurate and efficient decisions in their projects’ planning and execution stages. 
Examples of civil engineering projects where GIS Cloud technology is used range from evaluating land use opportunities and visualizing the impacts of the proposed construction to inventorying and monitoring assets.

Vegetation Management
Vegetation management is important for arborists in forestry, urban tree management, tree inspections and maintenance, electric utilities, and other industries, to properly care for ecosystems and ensure public safety. In some regions of the world, some strict laws and guidelines require vegetation maintenance to comply with safety regulations and inspections. Managing vegetation and trees requires constant care to avoid potential utility threats and other hazards, like fires or invasive species. 
This has made the vegetation management industry professionals and companies move towards new technologies and solutions for vegetation management that helps them optimize their workflow, reduce business costs, and empower communication and decision making.

Water Utilities
Constant urban growth is an ongoing trend in almost every city globally. Rapid urbanization leads to the increasing development of underground and ground utility networks, which requires frequent and accurate inspection and a robust monitoring system. 
The most significant challenge for public service providers is to acquire accurate and updated information on the location, characteristics, and the condition of water utility assets (hydrants, manholes, culverts, etc.). GIS Cloud technology makes monitoring the situation easier and managing maintenance activities for different water utility assets.
This study shows how the Liburnian Waters, a water utility company in Croatia, digitized field operations and implemented company-wide collaboration using the GIS Cloud platform. They also increased their efficiency and saved time on maintaining crucial water utility infrastructure.

Electric Utilities
GIS technology is essential for electric utility companies. It provides the foundational layer of technology for effective asset management and regulatory compliance. Companies use GIS Cloud for multiple purposes, from managing field operations to performing spatial analysis. 
For example, companies use maps to communicate their ideas, prioritize tasks, and create forms to collect the real-time status of infrastructure, energy consumption in an area, regular maintenance and reporting from the field, or potential threats to their grid such as vegetation or birds. Moreover, companies can include citizens’ input to get more information about the area’s needs and problems in energy distribution, transmission, or electric bills.

GIS technology has been enabling the Road Work Industry since its early beginnings. It is proven that the power of location enhances operational efficiency. Suppose you are a company in charge of maintaining traffic signalization, taking care of utility management, or simply a department within the company leading a field data collection project. In that case, an online GIS solution can be of great help for your workflow. 
Online GIS helps you obtain data from different systems into a single, easy-to-use platform and maintain your assets in the most collaborative way possible by working together with teammates in real time, no matter the location, time zone, and device.
