The Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget (DTMB), located in Lansing, Michigan has chosen Esri to host and manage all imagery data for the state. After reviewing a variety of different options, Esri was found to provide the integration platform and framework for managing imagery services that the state required for greater efficiency and collaboration.
The Esri solution will serve up to 25 terabytes of data for the Center for Shared Solutions (CSS), an office within DTMB, that manages services and products that are common to all areas of the government. One of the key functional areas of CSS includes providing leadership, technical expertise and sharing of geographic information in the State. The department provides more than 60 statewide mapping datasets built on the ArcGIS platform for every state-run entity in Michigan.
“We are proud to partner with the State of Michigan to help them empower their staff across multiple departments and partner with other agencies through sharing common authoritative geospatial data,” said Christopher Thomas, Director of Government Markets, Esri. “By hosting and managing imagery services in the Esri cloud, they are able to provide a data resource and shared understanding.”
