Port of Oakland

GIS Assessment

Websoft Developers worked with the Port of Oakland (Port) to assess the Port’s existing mapping and database information and to provide recommendations and solutions.  Websoft conducted numerous meetings with a variety of Port departments including Geomatics, Engineering, Environmental and IT to determine the needs and requirements for the GIS.  Websoft interviewed staff from each department and developed a GIS Plan based on the data, staff and technology available.  In addition, Websoft was tasked by the Port to evaluate and implement a prototype of the Autodesk Topobase software for evaluation for the Port.  Websoft created an Implementation Plan that included development of the data required for a GIS, specifications for software and tools, and creation of a Plan to train staff in data maintenance and usage of the system.  The Plan was presented to numerous committees and staff to obtain feedback and acceptance.
