Indianapolis, Ind., September 20, 2002 — Schneider Corp. announced the expansion of its GIS solutions for municipal and county agencies through the establishment of TransGIS.
TransGIS, a group of related products and services, broadens the user base for local government GIS by incorporating solutions for transportation infrastructure management through enhancement of existing GIS data.
TransGIS is a logical addition to Schneider’s GIS offering that will assist municipalities and counties with services such as management of their infrastructure assets, E911 mapping implementation and maintenance, and school bus routing.
“This is an exciting venture for Schneider that complements our current GIS offering,” said Eric Torok, Director of GIS at Schneider. “TransGIS allows us to apply our existing knowledge of GIS and local government requirements to transportation issues by integrating GIS. The establishment of TransGIS delivers solutions to municipal and county agencies in direct response to new government mandates such as NPDES, GASB34, and Phase II.”
Benefits realized by Schneider clients will include integration of GIS into transportation issues through visualization and analysis of situations like locating a new road or displaying emergency incidents on maps, leveraging the investment in GIS through departmental sharing of data, creating “what if” scenarios, and ultimately saving time and money by avoiding duplication of data collection.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary, The Schneider Corporation involved with GIS, surveying, engineering, and architectural consulting, serving municipalities, counties and utilities. Information: www.schneidercorp.com.
