ArcGIS for Canadian Municipalities

ArcGIS for Canadian Municipalities

ArcGIS for Canadian Municipalities includes a series of comprehensive apps built on a harmonized Canadian Municipal Data Model. The apps are immediately downloadable and customized specifically for Canadian municipalities, allowing you to increase citizen engagement, improve transparency, reduce public inquiries and more. Our specialized data model connects silos of information across your organization and integrates processes among departments so that you can work more effectively.

Canadian Municipal Data Model
ArcGIS for Canadian Municipalities is based on a harmonized data model that brings your operations to life. Referred to as the Canadian Municipal Data Model, it connects silos of information in a municipal organization, helping to run operations more efficiently, communicate more effectively, save time and money, and engage citizens in more meaningful ways. In addition, it also supports data sharing between municipal, provincial and federal agencies.

The data model includes a series of essential foundation layers and operational information designed to reflect specific application requirements and the cartographic design elements necessary to produce rich, multi-scale maps.

The data model can be configured to support specific business needs in your organization by selecting and implementing specific themes, or by adding fields and modifying field and layer aliases to reflect terms more widely used in your organization.

Fire Hydrant Inspection for Canada
Fire Hydrant Inspection offers a map-based view of a hydrant inspection program. It allows staff to load hydrant information, assign inspections and publish online fire hydrant inspection maps that can be used to conduct field inspections. If you don’t currently have hydrant information in your GIS or you discover missing hydrants while in the field, you can collect the missing hydrants with your location-aware smartphone.

The application is configurable and works with the Canadian Municipal Data Model.  It can be deployed and used on smartphones or tablet devices (using Collector for ArcGIS).
