New York City taps PlanGraphics for GIS

PlanGraphics Inc. has won a three-year, $15.4 million contract from New York to continue implementation of a citywide geographic information system utility, the company announced Jan. 2.

The contract, which was awarded by the New York City Department of Technology and Telecommunications, has two one-year options, the company said.

PlanGraphics of Frankfort, Ky., will continue to develop and upgrade the municipality's citywide GIS utility data repository, provide wider access to the utility's holdings and continue to develop custom GIS applications that support either general data access or agency-specific business processes.

The contract will enable the company to continue working directly with more than a dozen other city government agencies to support individual planning and systems implementation needs.

In addition, PlanGraphics will continue to provide access and integration to legacy mainframe systems throughout the city.

PlanGraphics has supported New York's development of a GIS utility for the past three years. The city selected PlanGraphics to perform a citywide GIS "needs assessment" in 1999, and then to design and implement the citywide GIS utility in 2000.

PlanGraphics provides systems integration and implementation services for clients in the public and private sectors. The company has more than 75 employees and annual revenue of $7.6 million, according to Hoover's Online of Austin, Texas.
