CITY OF ROCKFORD, ILL. PURCHASES ULTIMAP GIS

 CITY OF ROCKFORD, ILL. PURCHASES ULTIMAP GIS
 ST. PAUL, Minn., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultimap Corporation


announced today that the city of Rockford has purchased an UltiMap Geographic Information System and contracted for professional services for a GIS pilot project.
 "Perhaps the biggest reason we chose Ultimap," said Steve Ernst, GIS coordinator for the city, "is that the software is really geared to the needs of cities and counties, because it was originally developed by a city and a county."
 The pilot project, spearheaded by Ultimap and the Department of Public Works, is currently being implemented. "Pilot projects, like Ultimap's CityStart(TM), are essential for getting people up to speed quickly with GIS," according to Ernst.
 The Public Works Department will eventually use the new technology for infrastructure management. The city's plans include using the UltiMap GIS in all of the city's departments, including community development and public safety.
 Ultimap Corporation is a leading supplier of geographic information products and services, providing solutions that meet critical management needs of local governments and utilities.
