Project Goal

Saaremaa municipality is a relatively new local government, formed following the 2017 Estonian municipal reform on the basis of a merger of all twelve former Saaremaa municipalities. Until then only the local government of town of Kuressaare - Saaremaa’s capital - was equipped with GIS database. Hence, we had to decide which GIS software to go forward with for the newly formed municipality. Most of the data collected from the former municipalities was either printed on paper and filed on shelves, unsystemized in folders saved in employees’ computers or elsewhere. ArcGIS was the most suitable software that offered a broad-based ability and technical support to collect different kinds of data, analysis and the option to present information for internal and public use.
