Usage Scenarios and Examples

Here are some examples of how different government agencies could use some combinations of our free and paid services.

Police Crime Map


Click for Details
Scenario: A city police department wants to get their current and historic crime reports to the public.

Reason: They know it will improve their standing in the eyes of the public, and save them money by drastically reducing manual Freedom of Information Act requests.

Solution: Since they already manage a crime report database internally, they ask their Information Technology Officer to export the database as a spreadsheet in the XOMGL format. He can use the same method to export monthly updates.

Result: A fully interactive crime map on yourmapper.com that citizens can use, and includes 10 years of incidents, comments, RSS data feeds, availability on mobile phones, and category, keyword, and date searches.

Demo: Crime Reports Demo

Details: More Information

Cost:
Data Conversion/Geocoding: $0. Free since data was formatted as OMGS and had Latitude and Longitude
Embedded Map: $0. No cost. Decided to not place embedded map on own police website.

County Property Values


Click for Details
Scenario: A county government wants to put all the taxable property values online, right on their own website.

Reason: They collect monthly subscription fees for power-users of their site, so any more features and exposure they can value-add is great for their bottom line. And it will save them money by drastically reducing phone and email information requests.

Solution: Since they already manage a property value database internally, they ask their database guru to dump the database in its native format with the latitude and longitude of each property parcel. He can dump new or changed values each month for updates.

Result: An interactive property map on their site that lets people visually search for values at and around an address. There is also an interactive property map on yourmapper.com that links back to the city's property value site.

Demo: Live Property Values Map

Details: More Information

Costs:
Data Conversion: $100 one time, plus $25 per month
Embedded Map: $50 per month (very high-traffic site)

Restaurant Health Inspections

Scenario: A municipal health department has a list of health inspection results on their site, but wants the information on a visual map.

Reason: It's too difficult for the public to find what they are looking for, especially when trying to search in their neighborhood. And it will save the department money by drastically reducing phone and email information requests.

Solution: Since they already manage a restaurant database internally, they ask their webmaster to export the database as an OMGStandard spreadsheet. They do not have latitude and longitude of each place, but Your Mapper can help with that.

Result: An interactive restaurant health inspection map on their site that lets people visually search for values at and around an address. There is also an interactive restaurant health inspection map on yourmapper.com that lets people in and out of the city discover a valuable service the city offers.

Costs:
Geocoding Locations: $100 one time, plus $25 per month
Embedded Map: $25 per month
