GIS Team to Attend GIS/CAMA Conference This Week

Celebrate what you’ve accomplished, but raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed  -Mia Hamm

At BIS Consulting we are never satisfied to stay right where we are. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our services to our clients, to continue to grow and learn and raise the bar. To that end, we are sending two of our GIS team members to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma this week to attend the GIS/CAMA conference.

This is an annual conference for professionals in property assessment, tax administration, mapping and information technology. They will be attending classes ranging from GIS/CAMA integration to Creating Configurable Applications. They will also have a chance to network with other GIS professionals in this field which provides an invaluable amount of information since you are able to ask what works best and find out what doesn’t first hand from those that have used these tools already in their business.

We are excited to send these two off to soak up all this information and bring it back to us!

At BIS we are proud to offer top notch GIS services. We offer everything from helping you setup your GIS department to map data conversion to GIS support to mobile maps and everything in between. To see all of the GIS capabilities that BIS Consulting  has to offer please visit www.gisforcama.com

Google Is Making Changes…

At BIS Consulting we try to stay on top of the constantly changing technology world so we can keep you informed. Last week Google announce that they are making some Google Earth changes so we went straight to our GIS director, Aaron Kreag, for some insight on this and to see if it would affect our clients and the way their maps are handled.

While we do not think the change will affect any of our clients we felt it was important to put out some brief news affecting the greater GIS community.  Google will soon be ending its Google Earth Enterprise program among a few other internal changes.  ESRI has some news related to these changes located here:… http://www.esri.com/landing-pages/products/google-lp

The main news here is that if you or others in your office have parcel data in KML or KMZ format and you use Google Earth to visualize this data, you should consider switching to another product and format to view your data.  If you would like to upgrade your GIS program and capabilities, BIS is able to provide you with a dynamic web based mapping application such as:… http://gis.bisconsultants.com/huntcad/

However, if you need another free product you can look at ESRI ArcGIS Explorer, more information can be found here:.. http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/explorer

It is our understanding that Google Maps will continue to be used and supported for online usage, satellite imagery, locations and directions.  Please give us a call or email if you would like to discuss this new information.”

BIS Consulting’s First Annual Technology Conference – December 2015

BIS Consulting is strongly considering holding a Technology Conference in December 2015.  However, before we make concrete plans we would like to gauge interest and hopefully get an idea of possible attendance numbers.
