DC GIS Use of Google Geospatial Technology MWGOG GIS CommitteeJanuary 14, 2008

Why use google geospatial technology l.jpg
Why use Google Geospatial Technology

  • Market Share

  • Our customers know how and want to use it

  • Our decision makers want it

    • DC Mayor and Chief Technology Officer have entered into a partnership with Google.

  • Google Maps API lowers development and data costs

  • Google Earth 3D capability

    -- Primary Concerns –

  • Advertising

  • Does not replace data maintenance or analysis from our ESRI suite so we are supporting an additional environment.

Issues we are working through l.jpg
Issues we are working through

  • Meant for world wide mapping

    • Built in zoom level not to local government scale

  • How can I stop it from starting the map over California?

    • How can it start up zoomed to DC?

  • Unable to change the display order

  • Needs more symbols
