City GIS apps go offline
Friday, December 3, 2021 by Tai Moses
The city’s Communications and Technology Department will be migrating the city’s geodatabases today, so all city apps and tools that use geospatial services will be temporarily offline for about 24 hours, starting Friday at 4 p.m. Applications opened at that time will display a pop-up window explaining that the app is “unavailable due to maintenance.” The city’s map-based tools will not be available to residents during the migration window but will be restored when the migration is complete. According to a news release from the communications department, “This migration is one of the final steps of a yearlong project to transition the city’s GIS technology and software to a more current and more supported system. This project ensures that our GIS users continue to use the most up-to-date tools and resources to support work across the city.”
