London, Ontario & Zagreb, Croatia – September 21, 2023 – PSD Citywide® is pleased to announce its new integration with GIS Cloud, a leading European provider of GIS mapping working in more than 50 countries worldwide. Fully integrated with Citywide GIS, current and future clients can access a wealth of new public mapping options to provide greater transparency and value to citizens using easily accessible public maps.
GIS Cloud offers a complete location-based solution for different workflows in a wide range of industries, including utilities such as water and pipeline management or electric utilities, telecommunications, roadworks, tree inventory and inspection, retail, smart cities, natural resources, public city maps, and many more. They deliver a cutting-edge mapping technology accessible to a wide variety of users and companies, regardless of expertise, industry, or size. The company’s vision is to create advanced technologies that are simple to use, bringing the benefits of GIS to every corner of the world.
PSD Citywide client feedback showed a strong demand for being able to share more information with their citizens online. With GIS Cloud, existing and future clients of PSD Citywide can create, customize, and publish maps that the public can see online. Local governments can take data from the Citywide GIS solution to create their own maps and choose to publish those maps with a system-generated URL. They can then share the link or embed the map on their website to provide more transparency and citizen engagement. This is helpful for sharing details on capital projects like road work, a park enhancement, or a downtown revitalization project.
“Adding this new capability is something our clients have been asking for, and we are thrilled to be delivering this with our new integration with GIS Cloud”, commented Peter Scott, Chief Technology Officer at PSD Citywide. “With our existing GIS solution, clients were only able to share maps and data with platform users working within their local government. Now, they can choose to share something like splash pads, which they have in the GIS tool, and make that available on their municipal website so citizens can click on it, interact with it, and see every available location. This is just one of many examples our clients are excited to be able to share with their citizens.”
The integration with GIS Cloud opens many opportunities for PSD Citywide clients. They can create and share maps outlining garbage pick up schedules, park trails, ward zones, and more, all generated through the Citywide GIS solution. Existing clients can begin using these new features powered by GIS Cloud by speaking with their dedicated account manager or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
