Snohomish County PUD No. 1 taps Baymont for geographical data migration project

CLEARWATER, Fla., March 6, 2002 — Baymont has been awarded a contract for Snohomish County Public Utility District No. 1 in Everett, Washington to migrate the District’s existing electrical data from the current cadastral landbase to a landbase incorporating new digital orthophotography and new cadastral data.

The new combination of electrical facilities relocated to an accurate landbase will create an improved Geographical Information System for the District. Baymont will complete this project in its domestic geospatial data production facilities in Clearwater, Florida.

“The District conducted a thorough evaluation of potential consultants,” said David Wilson, Manager of Automation Services for Snohomish County PUD No 1. “We felt Baymont provided the best fit for the District’s requirements, and we look forward to working together on this very important initiative.”

Snohomish County PUD No. 1 provides electric service to Snohomish County and Camano Island, Washington. It is the second largest publicly owned utility in the Pacific Northwest, with a geographical area encompassing 2,200 square miles and a service base of 275,000 customers.

“Baymont is pleased to be working with the District,” said Bob Brown, President & CEO of Baymont. “It is a great opportunity to utilize our core domestic competency in data manipulation and migration and to accommodate the District’s needs.”

Commencing immediately, the project is expected to be completed in a year and includes a one-month start up phase followed by a two-month proof of concept.

Baymont operates worldwide, providing services in the conversion of graphic and nongraphic data to create spatially enabled enterprise-wide database solutions. Baymont provides GIS, photogrammetry, and data implementation services to utilities and governments across the globe.
