Challenge

The Army Corp of Engineers is the nation’s primary federal engineering agency and is responsible for hazardous waste clean-ups, military ordnance/ explosive clean-up, the construction and maintenance of reservoirs and dams, emergency response and other public services throughout the U.S. Within just California, Arizona and Nevada there are hundreds of active projects, each associated with a specific congressional representative. The ACOE needed an effective way of visualizing these projects by congressional district while tracking and managing each projects’ budgetary and sponsorship information/ data.

Solution

Farallon created a web-based application built with ESRI’s ArcIMS that maps each project and makes it easy to drill down for project-specific information. The web interface provides quick access to all projects specific to the CA-AZ-NV region. An ACOE user simply uses the mouse to draw an area on the map and retrieve a list of all current projects in that selected area. They can then select a particular project to view a pop-up fact sheet containing a synopsis of the project, its budgetary goals by fiscal year, its congressional representative and a link to the representative’s website. Projects can also be visually categorized and selected by congressional district or by watershed region.
The application provides a consistent means for recording and editing information associated with Citibank bank branches. It also ensures secure, password protected access to data editing tools. Colliers’ staff can now access Citibank data in a fast and intuitive manner using any standard web browser.
