Currently DCA hosts their own production server of their NMCRIS Web Mapping Service. But the cost of hosting and supporting new servers and software is forcing them to look at other alternatives. IGIST has setup a mirrored Web Map Service through Amazon Web Services (AWS). We manage this on an EC2 instance and can use this site for development of new functionality without interfering with the production instance.
IGIST provided ArcGIS instruction to the regional headquarters in Albuquerque. Students attended from various parts of the country to learn to support their local GIS programs.
The central California region is undergoing planning efforts to clearly demarcate their STAA routes which allow heavy duty truck traffic access to their freight destinations. The Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA) has required that federal and local jurisdictions participate in the planning process to assign STAA route status to areas that require truck traffic. IGIST is managing the GIS data that has been accumulated from 6 different agencies and forming the data into a single standard GIS database that is capable of supporting the regions planning efforts.
UNM is interested in supporting its GIS certificate program and is using a blend of certified and custom GIS training to prepare students to enter the workforce. They are using IGIST's senior instructor for ESRI certified and custom training to add to its program.
Contracted Archaeologists and Architects around New Mexico are fully using the NMCRIS system. IGIST has responded to new user needs to program new enhancements into the Web Map Services and the SQL Server database.
Recent federal requirements are forcing local jurisdictions to adhere to sign retroreflectivity standards to ensure that signs are clearly readable. IGIST developed the GPS data collection procedures and ongoing GIS database management protocol to receive data for nearly 5000 signs in the Port's jurisdiction. IGIST gave training on these methods using Trimble GPS systems and ESRI mapping software.
