LOJIC has a core full-time staff dedicated to the support of all user agencies.
As other municipalities have tried and failed to organize cooperative, multiagency systems, the LOJIC consortium has succeeded.
Since its inception, LOJIC has maintained a core technical staff that supports all end user functions related to GIS data and applications development and analysis across all user agencies.
LOJIC has built a detailed county-wide photogrammetrically compiled planimetric and topographic (PTD) base map that contains more than 100 features in 22 different data layers, and meets National Map Accuracy Standards for 1" = 100' mapping (+/-2.
Using Hansen's Infrastructure Management System (IMS), the system links an Oracle database housed on SUN servers on the MSD network, with the graphic facilities data located on the LOJIC network.
MSD, as the entity responsible for storm-water management services in Jefferson County, uses LOJIC as the official FIRM repository.
Since 1996, LOJIC has produced high-resolution orthophoto imagery from annual aerial photography of Jefferson County rectified to the PTD mapping.
Metadata and system documentation are available online in PDF format to all LOJIC users.
LOJIC is in a period of major transition and evolution on all fronts.
LOJIC system architecture, software, databases, and applications have also undergone significant transition in recent years as a result of ongoing efforts to migrate the enterprise to ArcGIS technology.
Approximately 30 LOJIC "power users" have been trained in ArcGIS and work is under way on designing sets of ArcIMS tools as a precursor to moving hundreds of browse/query users away from ArcView 3.
LOJIC partners and technical staff are diligently working toward building a stronger, more viable GIS enterprise.
