Project Goal

In 2005, GIS was identified as an integral component of the workings of a Transport Agency and in 2006 the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) GIS was born. LAMATA GIS began humbly with one computer system which doubled as the workstation and the server, and an ArcView 8.3 Concurrent License, Extensions and Data. For the next six years LAMATA GIS with a GIS Specialist at the helm, functioned as a service centre, which catered to the mapping and spatial analysis needs of staff of three main departments in the organization.
2015 and the upgrade to ArcGIS 10.3, brought a host of exciting new possibilities to LAMATA Enterprise GIS. On March 2, 2015, the LAMATA Enterprise GIS Portal, utilizing Portal for ArcGIS, was unveiled to internal users.
As LAMATA GIS has evolved over the years, usage by staff has steadily grown from lukewarm to enthusiastic, the implementation of all the aforementioned solutions has truly given life to the phrase “GIS at your fingertips."
