Miami-Dade County‘s ECM GIS Integration for Environmental Resource Management Permitting was just recognized with a Sustainability Award from the Public Technology Institute. The solution leverages TSG’s OpenContent Management Suite to provide the public access to critical documents like aerial photography, street maps, surveys, permits and other supporting documentation. The solution helps inspectors identify potential environmental impacts.
TSG is honored to have assisted Miami-Dade County implement a system that not only expands who has access to critical information but also helps the environment. Learn more about Miami-Dade County and PTI.

Miami-Dade County – ECM GIS Integration for Environmental Resource Management Permitting
The Division of Environmental Resources Management (DERM), within Miami Dade County’s own Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources (RER), permits tens of thousands of facilities which have the potential of impacting South Florida’s sensitive environment. RER DERM’s electronic content management system (ECM) is used to retrieve content from over 45 environmental programs which accomplish the task of regulating such facilities under Chapter 24, the environmental code of Miami-Dade County. The County staff was able to integrate Geographical mapping and spatial visualizations with existing data already accessible to the public through the OpenData Portal. The deployed solution enables inspectors to view permitted facilities via digital aerial photography or standard street maps along with pertinent electronic content such as surveys, permits and supporting documentation. In addition, inspectors can ascertain possible environmental impacts by viewing the location and description of other permitted facilities in close proximity. The map can be used to recursively search neighboring facilities and retrieve content, without the need for address or location information. The end user goes to just one single application that provides comprehensive functionality and stays current.
Public Technology Institute actively supports local government executives and elected officials through research, education, executive-level consulting services, and national recognition programs.
As the only technology organization created by and for cities and counties, PTI works with a core network of leading local officials — the PTI membership — to identify research opportunities, provide thought leadership and professional development opportunities, share solutions, provide technology support services, recognize member achievements and address the many technology issues that impact local government. In 2014, the PTI Board of Directors approved a new membership category for state agencies.
