Lake Forest becomes 17th member of the GIS Consortium


We are proud to announce that the City of Lake Forest has joined the
GIS Consortium. The City is the 17th member and largest based on square
miles (17.2) and the ninth largest community based on population
(20,990). The City implemented their GIS in 1997 and is one of three
communities in the Chicago Metro area to have had a GIS program in the
late 1990s.

The City GIS is one of the premier programs in the Chicago area and
the GIS Consortium excited about the collaborative partnership. The
partnership provides an opportunity to work together to share common
experiences, best practices, improve efficiency and lower the cost of
GIS. Some important upcoming projects are the implementation of New
World Systems for emergency dispatch and converting as-built and utility
data into the GIS Consortium Utility model.
