The Cloudpoint is excited to have the opportunity to take the City of Pekin’s GIS to the next level. The city has used Cloudpoint’s professional GIS services off and on for the past five years but after losing their full-time GIS coordinator last fall, they realized the critical importance of maintaining their GIS system and decided to take their relationship with Cloudpoint from one of courting, to a more serious partnership. With that, Cloudpoint and the City of Pekin have engaged in a two-year contract for professional GIS services to support the various departments throughout the city. The team has begun intensive meetings with city staff to further dive into their needs and how they can better utilize the GIS system for their daily workflows. With the new contract, Cloudpoint staff will be onsite for up to 30 hours per month, with additional technical support services coming in the forms of enterprise GIS management and GIS application deployment. One of the main objectives is to enable city staff to take more ownership of GIS data and make edits and updates for their department with user-friendly web-based applications. The Client has a wealth of GIS data which has been well managed and distributed in the past but with greater editing capabilities, the use of real-time GIS updates should further enhance the value of their data. In addition, the city hopes to easily share this authoritative data both internally as well as externally to contractors, consultants, and developers.

Did you know that Central Illinois’ largest cemetery has over 75,000 gravesites? And it is the final resting place of some of the most famous historical Illinoisans. When the cemetery needed an upgrade to their mapping software to ingrate a more user-friendly, web-based system, they turned to Cloudpoint Geographics.
Each section of the cemetery had its own set up maps and related grave records. These historic records were manually reviewed and data entered into the new mapping system. The final application will consist of a searchable, interactive, GIS web map for cemetery managers to easily update records for burials and track lot sales.
The team was able to provide drone flights and GPS data collection to introduce high-resolution imagery onto the scene and increase spatial accuracy of all gravesites along with the various sectional layouts of the cemetery. As part of the final project the Client will be receiving an interactive web-based mapping application to easily search, edit, and updated burial records, lot sales, and ownership information for each site. In addition, Cloudpoint will be providing a public-facing web map that allows the public to search by last name to find loved ones or to support genealogical research. For more information on how your cemetery can improve data management and benefit from integrating GIS technology contact us or call 877-377-8124.
Late last year, the Tazewell County ETSB contracted with Cloudpoint Geographics to provide GIS Data Cleanup and Configuration in preparation for NG9-1-1. The contract includes the following major components that will be configured and delivered through Esri’s ArcGIS platform including ArcGIS Online for communities to submit updates to road centerline and address data.
Data Assessment to review existing data and analyze errors
Integration of GIS updates with the Client’s CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch) system
Coordination with local agencies to incorporate local GIS data layers
Building structure points layer with classification
Spatial updates to road centerlines and address points
Correcting topological errors in boundary layers
Converting data format and spatial reference to State of Illinois’ NG9-1-1 Data Standards
Setup & integration of Enterprise GIS for data exchange with local agencies
Ongoing GIS data maintenance
The results of this project will assist Tazewell County 9-1-1 dispatchers and emergency responders by improving data accuracy and increasing efficiency in response times. Additionally it will provide increased communications between the county 9-1-1 and local addressing authorities. For more information regarding Cloudpoint’s NG9-1-1 GIS data services please contact us or visit our NG9-1-1 services page.
When Scott County, Iowa had a recent opportunity to secure grant funding to provide GIS data cleanup for NG9-1-1 they took full advantage and contract with Cloudpoint to compete this work. The project had a very tight time frame being completed in less than 60 days. This work involved cleanup of Emergency Service boundaries in the GIS, as well as repairing road centerline geometry, correcting road centerline address ranges, directional errors in digitize roadway directions, and reviewing site address data points that fell out of range with the centerlines. Cloudpoint was able to complete this cleanup work using tools including curves-to-lines in ArcGIS Pro, creating topologies, and using the 'Align To Shape' tool for aligning emergency services boundaries with road centerlines and administrative or political boundaries where applicable. Overall the project involved a over of 88,000 address points and more than 2,300 centerline miles. Cloudpoint continues to provide high quality GIS data services for state and local governments throughout the Midwest. For more information contact our office at 877-377-8124.
The Village of Burr Ridge has contracted with Cloudpoint Geographics to provide complete managed GIS services. Cloudpoint's professional staff will act as an extension to the Village's internal staff when it comes to GIS needs and communicating with its constituents. Here are some resources that the Client will soon be able to take advantage thanks to this newly formed partnership.
Village staff had the foresight to see that a centralized GIS can be a "single source of truth" for both internal and external users to access critical information to help drive decision making processes. The Cloudpoint team will be working closely with the finance director, assistant administrator, public works officials, and IT staff to remotely connecting to the Village's network to perform GIS upgrades and rolling out new applications for the system as well as providing regular training for their staff. For more information on how your agency can take advantage of our affordable GIS services you can contact us through our website or call 877-377-8124.
