The city of Bryan’s Information Technology Department has won another award.

The Bryan IT Department picked up an excellence award for the city’s geographic information system (GIS) project implementation.

The award is from the Texas Association of Governmental Information Technology Managers (TAGITM), an information systems professional organization that provides a forum for generating ideas, sharing problems, and developing solutions.

The association currently has over 200 cities, counties, appraisal districts and school districts as part of their membership program.

Among other things, Bryan GIS provides GIS support for the Brazos County 911 District.

GIS plays a vital role in the dispatching of appropriate resources to an incident and while on scene provides additional information regarding factors in the surrounding area that may contribute to incident response.

The award was presented before the Bryan City Council meeting on June 26, 2007 to recognize the contribution that the city of Bryan has made in the field of information technology.

Dale Harwell, TAGITM President presented the award before the City Council.
