"The mission of the Cincinnati Area Geographic Information System (CAGIS) is to create a revolutionary computerized information sharing system that enables the fundamental transformation of government and utility service management and delivery. CAGIS is to offer government, utility companies, groups, or citizens a new, intelligent, and cost effective tool to make informed decisions based on shared data within a standard framework.
In 1995 CAGIS established the foundation for automating the functions of government and utilities whose activities create the inventories of sewers, land records, water, drainage, electrical systems, streets, right of way, etc. supporting the community. Having a real-time availability of the graphic and alpha - numeric inventories has been demonstrated as the strategy upon which major cost improvements in line department operations are based. In 1995 CAGIS began the design for the automation of the Permits System for the City of Cincinnati, Hamilton County and Cincinnati Gas and Electric Company as the first stage of embedding maintenance of inventory data into the on-going work of employees. The Permits project concentrates on the additions and deletions made to all of the public and utility managed inventories by the activities of the private sector. The goals of the project are to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the permitting services offered the private sector while enabling the real time parallel maintenance of the graphic and alpha numeric inventory databases."
