Potter County Establishes New GIS Division

Potter County Establishes New GIS Division

emborsky1The Potter County Commissioners announce that, effective Jan. 1, 2014, a GIS/Mapping Department will be established and will be located in the Gunzburger Building, within the Planning Office. 

Rudin Emborsky (left), who has served as a GIS/Mapping employee with the Potter County Department of Emergency Services, has been appointed as the GIS/Mapping Director.

GIS/Mapping Coordinator Jake Ostrom will also be involved in the new department, as well as continuing to serve as Chief Assessor.

They’ll be coordinating GIS functions with several county department heads, including Information Technology Director Bill Solomon. A portion of Emborsky’s time will be contracted for a fee to the Department of Emergency Services/911, reducing the county’s expense in establishing the service.

GIS (Geographic Information Service) has become a critical part of government operations in recent years. The new technology, combined with longitude/latitude data and other traditional records, improves accuracy and efficiencies in emergency services, planning, tax assessment, deed recording, public works, as well as coordination with private-sector entities and state/federal government initiatives. Many county and local governments across Pennsylvania have established GIS divisions.

Potter County finally catches up with the 21st century. This is a lot like internet access. It is pretty much expected when you are dealing with emergencies, real estate and just about everything else involving logistics and the public. Better late than never I guess.

@8:35 yes, better late than never, it takes a lot of work and money to stand up quality GIS units and programs.

Congrats to Potter County and the new GIS team.... you've got a lot ahead of you. If possible, don't forget about some great GIS students out there that make great interns.
