The website was launched publicly this week and represents a county-wide GIS solution designed to meet the needs of multiple local government users as well as the general public. The site replaces an AutoDesk MapGuide application that had been previously utilized by the county.
GCS Research developed the application utilizing ASP.NET against the .NET Framework, Microsoft IIS Web Server, ESRI’s ArcIMS 9.0, ESRI’s ArcSDE 9.0, and Microsoft SQL Server. The application is fully integrated into Flathead County’s IT Department with extensive consideration given to the optimal configuration for ArcIMS-ArcSDE performance.
As a database-driven, Services Oriented Application (SOA), the site is designed to leverage the power of ArcSDE and Microsoft SQL Server.
