Technology to aid city departments
New mapping app to save time, money
City Statesboro logo
Statesboro information technology and public works staffs are nearing the launch a program they say will save the city time and money. The departments are working to develop a mobile geographic mapping application that will allow city workers — and, potentially, residents — to mark and view points of interest in the city, on a virtual map, where work needs to be done. At launch, officials expect the geographic information system app, which can be accessed on computers and mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones, to aid public works employees in efficiently locating and removing yard waste as soon as it is left curbside.
