In 2016 Linn County, Oregon began the process of upgrading their Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system. After being in a tabular CAD world for 28 years, the new CAD system was now map-centric, and reliant on the GIS data. This made it challenging to understand the impact GIS data would have as they moved into this new system.
