Winner, Exemplary Systems in Government Award – 2017.

Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA)

“The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is the primary hub of planning, deployment response, and
information management during an emergency event. In late 2016 through early 2017, the City of Sandy
Springs developed an agile mapping system for tracking real-time data during storm events. The GIS map
hosted through ArcGIS Online was a centrally managed communication tool to facilitate dispatch of snow and
salt operations and field crews to clear incidents such as fallen trees.” Application and Full Program Details:
