During August 2019 Emtel ventured to the sunny Bay of Plenty to assist Whakatane District Council in a planned upgrade of their ESRI ArcGIS Software, servers, and geospatial web application Geocortex. Senior Consultant Ethan Hohneck had originally worked on the migration from MapInfo to ESRI ArcGIS and Geocortex back in 2010 and 2011 with Whakatane District Council. This time round he was working with Stephen O’Leary (GIS Team Leader) and Casey Box (GIS Analyst).
The roll-out to staff starts second week of September and should be a great hit with staff. Whakatane DC also recently purchased the Emtel Property Title Preview API which will be configured to run with Geocortex and help deliver latest Certificate of Title information to users.
