West Virginia Department of Commerce Enterprise GIS Data Portal

The West Virginia Development Office (WVDO) and the Office of Coalfield Community Development (OCCD) have demonstrated a need for broad access to geospatial data and applications throughout the organization. The agencies share a need to establish a framework through which they can access, manage, disseminate, and display their data using available client and mobile connections. The project objectives include the establishment of an ArcGIS server to deliver advanced GIS (Geographic Information System) capabilities, integrate the spatial data owned by the WVDO and OCCD, and host their server. The solution proposed by RTI will enable sharing of data and facilitate access to the server through both ArcGIS desktop and mobile ArcGIS applications. The server will be restricted to authorized users through the use of tiered access control mechanism and role based management control.
