Frankfort, Ky., signs GIS deal

Frankfort, Ky., signed an enterprise license agreement for small municipal and county governments with ESRI, the company announced yesterday.

The agreement allows all staff in the city government to access ESRI's ArcGIS geographic information system software that provides visualization and cartographic capabilities, spatial analysis and geographic data management, according to company officials said.

Users will be able to deploy desktop, server and mobile GIS applications without worrying about software license procurement, said Julsun Pacheco, Frankfort's IT manager.

The city uses GIS in the police, fire and emergency 911 dispatch departments, city officials said. Pacheco said he plans to use GIS and Global Positioning Systems to allow dispatchers to view the locations of transit buses, maintenance crews and recycling and sanitation trucks.
