Replacing Your File Cabinet With a Spatially-enabled Document Management System

Municipalities have historically relied on physical file cabinets to store hard copy documents, and each year the quantity of plans, deeds, and records has grown. With this accumulation comes an increased need and challenge to track, manage, and search for documents to respond to public requests. Digital document management has been embraced by many communities but it can still be challenging to organize documents in a way that makes them easy to discover.

Many documents contain information regarding a spatial location. Utility record plans display sewer connectivity on a specific street, ward files define property boundaries, and zoning bylaws propose changes in residential neighborhoods. Instead of storing, and searching for documents in file folders marked A to Z, what if documents could be stored and searched for online by their spatial location?

In this presentation, attendees will learn how local GIS managers have spatially enabled their digital document management, allowing their colleagues and the public to search for information using a map. This discussion will present strategies, workflows and the lessons the managers learned along the way.
