Project Goal

GIS and geodata are important resources frequently used in the day-to-day work at the County Administrative Boards of Sweden. The last couple of years we have focused on enabling the use of GIS to new parts of the organization. By actively working to build a platform of new web tools based on ArcGIS Enterprise Portal we have transitioned from desktop to Web GIS for assignments that are less complex. The requirements of access to large amounts of geodata led us to in-house develop a configurator to structure the inventory list in the Web GIS and a geodata search that quickly lists the interests of a case area. Applications like Field maps and Survey 123 have enabled GIS to new users working with supervision and field work. To easily manage the platform and content we have adapted licensing options and privileges to fit our typical users and producers of data and applications. Now the entire organization can access and share information through applications built to fit their needs.

Development Team Biography

The work to build our platform and develop necessary strategies, policies, and manuals to manage the use has been a joint effort between our national GIS management and the IT-department as well as coordinators and user at the respective counties. The management has collected the requirements from the users and worked together with the IT-department to develop user-friendly solutions. The GIS-coordinators of the respective counties have been responsible for implementing the new tools in the day-to-day work and all users have participated in adapting to new approaches and policies.
