Colorado GeoData Cache – Case Study
Deployment of a web-based GIS server solution
In the fall of 2013, heavy rain and catastrophic flooding along Colorado’s Front Range affected 22 counties, and resulted in widespread destruction of property and the displacement of thousands of people. The Colorado OIT (the technology agency of the State of Colorado) asked us to develop a web-based GIS server solution to make it convenient for state agencies and the general public to find and download specific geospatial data and imagery.
Sanborn developed and deployed a web-based data discovery tool designed to discover and access imagery data, elevation data, and potentially other large data sets related to the 2013 flood incident. Tools were designed to provide different levels of authenticated access based on user credentials. It also included serving of the imagery, elevation, and vector data as a WMS, WFS, or other web service.
