GIS Upgrade

City of Los Altos, CA

In February 2016, the City of Los Altos put out a proposal for a Professional Services for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Update Project.  VESTRA responded and was awarded the project. VESTRA worked with the City to understand their requirements and developed an Enterprise GIS that incorporated their requirements and needs from the ground up. VESTRA designed the system architecture and implemented a central geodatabase for authoritative data, a GIS server for map services and a modern GIS viewer for end users to view the latest information.

VESTRA also developed workflows and automated processes to keep data up to date.

El Paso County, CO

El Paso County, Colorado Information Technologies contracted with VESTRA to supply consulting services to assist with their GIS systems upgrade.  The upgrade consisted of migrating from ArcGIS for Server v9.3.1 to ArcGIS for Server v10.3.x as well as a backend database migration from SQL Server to Oracle Exadata, configuring supported user authentication systems to work with Portal, Federating ArcGIS for Server sites with Portal, and configuring ArcGIS site as the hosting server for Portal for ArcGIS.  The Counties architecture will also be upgraded and virtualized as part of this process. 

City of Novato, CA

The City of Novato (City) contracted with VESTRA to evaluate and modernize their existing GIS system and leverage the investments made by the City in GIS data and technology over the years, by implementing Enterprise GIS (EGIS) technology.  A low-level needs assessment was performed to City specifications. As per the needs assessment, the EGIS will provide a platform for City staff to access and share authoritative data and information via modern web applications that provide a robust set of tools to perform tasks.  In addition, the EGIS will consume from and contribute to, data and services within Marin Maps, thus providing City staff a robust set of GIS tools to perform work.  VESTRA’s approach towards the EGIS implementation will help the City reach its goals.  VESTRA recently upgraded the City of Novato to ArcGIS for Server 10.4.

City of Redding, CA

VESTRA worked with the City of Redding to migrate their legacy, high usage Enterprise GIS web applications to modern Portal and Web AppBuilder based web apps. The legacy applications used Adobe Flex technology. Besides developing custom Web AppBuilder widgets that support City business processes, VESTRA performed the upgrade of the City’s ArcGIS for Server from version 10.1 to version 10.3.1.  The City made the change to migrate to the latest Esri platform and take advantage of the latest functionalities that it provided.
