West Point Implements ParcelViewer

The Town of West Point recently selected WorldView’s ParcelViewer application to serve as the town’s Web Mapping platform. The application will provide town staff and the public with the ability to query, display and analyze the town’s tax parcel GIS layer and information contained in the assessment database.  This will include searching for parcel information, display of detailed data results from the assessment database, and a fully functional application that combines this data with other GIS information. These tools will provide the public and town staff alike with easy, functional access to critical town data and other GIS information. The Town of West Point’s implementation of the ParcelViewer application serves to supplement WorldView’s longstanding partnership of providing GIS related services to the town.

WorldView Client, DEQ, Wins Governor’s Technology Award

WorldView Solutions client, Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), won a Governors Technology Award for Innovative Use of Big Data and Analytics at the 2016 Commonwealth of Virginia Innovative Technology Symposium (COVITS).  DEQ completed a major initiative to modernize its Comprehensive Environmental Data System (CEDS) application and retire the legacy tool.  The WorldView Solutions team made significant contributions to this effort by building and migrating multiple modules in the Water Modernization Program in the new CEDS platform.   CEDS is instrumental in internal DEQ data management and sharing but also improves the ability of the agency to respond to data requests from citizens, other states and the Environmental Protection Agency.

How do you share office etiquette with staff?
Every company has its own way of doing things. At WorldView, we like to think our way of doing things is better than everyone else, and I’m sure the same is true at your company. When we started re-writing our company handbook (you can download a copy of it here), our staff said they wished they had known the protocol for certain things in the office. So we asked them to share their advice, which we sprinkled throughout our handbook, to make sure new staff knew where we’re coming from.
