The Metropolitan Cebu Water District developed a GIS to accommodate data
and information concerning the water supply and distribution pipeline network,
water production facilities, and major appurtenances. Developed by the GIS unit
in collaboration with key departments, the $220,000 application is now updated
by departmental users and source data owners. The objective is to maintain a
common, accurate, and up-to-date GIS map for decision support.
Based on MicroStation GeoGraphics, the GIS application has a simple and user-friendly graphical user interface that was customized to help technicians update
data more efficiently. The GIS was rapidly deployed to relevant site offices for
data updating and maintenance work. The GIS map is now available through the
LAN and WAN, making GIS data available online to satellite office terminals.
