PR – After a competitive bid process, the City of Unalaska, Alaska, selected Geographic Technologies Group, Inc. (GTG) to develop a GIS Needs Assessment and Strategic Implementation Plan. The plan will evaluate current GIS operations in the City and make recommendations that will ensure an enterprise-wide GIS for the future.
Located off the mainland in the Aleutian Islands, the City of Unalaska is located on Unalaska Island and neighbors Amaknak Island, better known as Dutch Harbor. The port of Unalaska/Dutch Harbor is the main port for the Bering Sea crab fishery.
“The staff at Unalaska are great,” said Curt Hinton, CEO of GTG. “They are very enthusiastic about GIS and what it can do for the City. Every City department has identified potential needs that would benefit their staff and the citizens. Unalaska will no doubt be successful with its GIS efforts. We are very excited to work with City staff and to be able to share in the unique beauty that only can be found in the Alaskan Aleutian Islands.”
The project will include on-site interviews and presentations to all of the stakeholders. The resultant plan will serve as the step-by-step guide of how GIS is governed, implemented, and distributed throughout the City.
