Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Award
Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Award - 2005
The city of Marietta's Geographic Information Services Department was awarded the 'Special Achievement in GIS Award' at the International ESRI User's Conference in 2005, in San Diego.
Recipients of the Special Achievement in GIS award are submitted by ESRI staff from thousands of organizations worldwide, then personally reviewed and selected by Jack Dangermond, the president and founder of ESRI. ESRI is the leader in GIS software and the standard in the GIS industry.
This award is given based upon what the organization does to promote GIS within it's own organization and the community. Consideration is made on how far the organization has advanced in GIS technology, what services they provide, and more. Marietta's GIS department is unique in that it goes beyond GIS services, offering web development and graphic art support as well. The Marietta GIS department is well respected in the GIS community not only throughout Georgia, but the Southeast as well. Marietta is now recognized on a National level.
The SAG award ceremony is held at the annual ESRI International User Conference and presided over by Jack Dangermond.
