Client Spotlight:

Campbell County, Wyoming

Campbell County, Wyoming

Campbell County, Wyoming

Beginning with a 4 year phased GIS Implementation Plan in 2004, Campbell County GIS has had a long and fruitful relationship with GTG for over twelve years.

Projects Completed: The projects accomplished over that time include a complete county road inventory and address point collection, inventories of park infrastructure and amenities for 21 county parks, and infrastructure for county roads to include culverts, bridges, cattle guards and signs.  There have also been several custom tools built for the county including an analysis tool for the county Assessor to overlay soil data with aerial photography to assess agricultural land values, and a custom mobile map application for the Sheriff's department.  Collaborative efforts between GTG and the Campbell County GIS have led to projects like the 311GIS.

Client Background: Cathy Raney | After graduating from Texas A & M University with a degree in Environmental Design, Cathy started as a draftsman with the City of College Station Public Utilities Department in 1991. When the city chose Esri as their GIS software provider, Cathy transitioned into a GIS technician position. Seven years later she accepted a position with Campbell County as their GIS Coordinator. And with the help of the professional and supportive staff at GTG, she has been building an enterprise GIS for the county ever since.
