I GEO NET Le mans metropole
The I GEO NE T project allows almost 200 people at Le Mans
Metropole to share the GIS data set of the city of Le Mans
and nine municipalities with a total of 195,000 inhabitants
in the west of France. The GIS files are posted on a Web
server with an easy-to-use Web interface for nonGIS users.
More than 80 users from other departments have access to
the portal to view the GIS data. For instance, the building
permit department is able to visualize up-to-date maps in
order to make appropriate decisions.

To design and manage its GIS data, 95 seats of MicroStation
are being used among several departments such as cadastre,
water, district lightning, building, and urban zoning. All I GEO
NE T users view the GIS data through Bentley Redline. A VBA
application allows the users to retrieve the alphanumerical
data from Oracle.
Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council (OMBC), in Lancashire,
United Kingdom, implemented on-demand, simple, and easy
access to corporate data to enable in-house decision makers
while providing the public access to the same information.
Incorporating nongraphical data, including Oracle, SQL,
and MapInfo data, was essential.
Before the project, accessing this information was restricted to
those who with desktop solutions and the expertise to find and
manipulate the data. As access to the information becomes
necessary in the day-to-day work of more staff, the number of
casual users is significantly increasing. The solution was to
create a Web-based system of accessing information. Bentley
Geo Web Publisher and Bentley Geo Web Solutions were
selected as the appropriate solutions. To date, OMBC has
saved £315,495, an amount that grows as more users take
advantage of the new system.
