Osceola County, Florida Selects Accela GIS to Automate Map Analysis Activities

DUBLIN, Calif., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Accela, Inc., the leading provider of government enterprise management solutions, announced today that Osceola County, Florida has selected Accela GIS(TM) to be implemented in the County's Building and Development Department. Accela GIS provides automated maps from a central database and gives staff direct access to view geographic representations of all land use, zoning, and infrastructure information associated with a parcel, permit, inspection, or plan.

Osceola County currently uses Accela to centralize the land and permit management activities of the Department. With the addition of Accela GIS, the County will be able to leverage information in its existing GIS database to automate map analysis and speed up the review process. Accela GIS graphically represents a broad range of complex geographic information specific to the active case, application, or permit so agency staff can determine if there are any potential issues or violations with the particular application.

"Most of local government's business information contains a geographical element so agencies are always looking for a better way to integrate GIS data with their land management solutions. Accela GIS fills this need by providing users with powerful spatial analysis capabilities and allowing them to make better-informed decisions and put away the old paper maps," states Robert P. Lee, Accela's President and CEO.

Osceola County serves as the south/central boundary of the Central Florida Region and the Greater Metropolitan Area. The County has been expanding rapidly, experiencing over 60% population growth in the last ten years. Osceola County joins several other jurisdictions in Florida who are already utilizing Accela's e-government solutions. These include Miami-Dade County, Department of Environmental Resources Management (DERM), Gainesville, Tallahassee, South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), Altamonte Springs, Pinellas County, Orlando, Leon County, and Key Biscayne.
