was one of more than 170
organizations honored during the Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Awards
ceremony on July 25 at the annual Esri
International User Conference (Esri UC) in San Diego, California. The SAG Awards
acknowledge innovative and intelligent applications of GIS technology.
"Each year, the SAG Awards highlight extraordinary
achievements and efforts to improve our world," says Esri president
Jack Dangermond. "At Esri, we are always deeply impressed with the work of
our users. This recognition is well deserved for how they've applied geospatial
technology to address the needs of their industries and communities. They are
defining GIS best practices."
Frontier Surveying is building, deploying and maintaining an
enterprise-wide, cloud-based GIS that staff and clients can quickly access and
easily use. Using technologies such as ArcMap 10.1, ArcGIS
Explorer, ArcGIS Online for organizations, AutoCAD, Trimble GPS Data
Collectors and the Internet, the company seeks to meet the growing demand for
spatial data assets and information sharing. On the awards website, the
description of the business problem solved notes: "Beyond physical and
virtual boundaries, ArcGIS Online for organizations is enabling our
company to meet the mounting demand for our time and services by making
geographic information available on call via self-service portals to customers
via Esri's managed cloud infrastructure. Still in its infancy, ArcGIS
Online for organizations is already going viral at Frontier Surveying Company.
It is quickly evolving as the depository where multiple users simultaneously
access, store, add and edit spatial data and information."
