Geographic Information Systems

Asset management can be a complex and cumbersome task for any municipality. CPJ helps municipalities with this issue by assisting with locating and recording assets for quick and easy retrieval from GIS software.

The first step to any asset management program is to know what assets there are and where they are. CPJ incorporates GIS with field survey information to provide municipalities with layered information about anything and everything pertinent to managing public space.

GIS allows the Town and City Managers to have all the municipal assets just a quick click away. This translates to better coordinated improvements, quicker determination of liability, and overall improved efficiency.

Not only does having an asset inventory save the municipality money, it saves it’s residents money through reduced cost of any additional surveys they may need.
