In the endeavor to pursue creative and efficient management practices, the Authority has undertaken an initiative to manage and access their substantial data sets through the implementation of an integrated, enterprise Geographic Information System (GIS).  First, the Authority conducted a needs assessment in order to evaluate existing data sets, existing hardware and software, demonstrate how GIS software can be used and finally, develop an implementation schedule.  The primary benefit of the enterprise GIS project has been the organization-wide deployment of data and GIS-based tools that provide access to highly accurate and timely data across the organization.
