The Sault Ste. Marie Innovation Centre offers Geographic Information Systems (GIS) consulting services based on the impressive expertise of its GIS team. In 2000, SSMIC formed the Community Geomatics Centre (CGC) to assist the City of Sault Ste. Marie and the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) in the efficient retrival, reproduction and analysis of spatially related municipal and utilities infrastructure.
The CGC developed an award-winning Integrated Geomatics Model, touted as the most comprehensive in Canada, to support multiple applications.
At the core of the CGC solution is a dynamic team of highly skilled IT professionals, cutting edge municipal, utilities and health data models, tools and a highly secure data warehouse. The CGC Partners' data sharing is secure and efficient within the limits of each organization's privacy policies. Generally, the data sharing is by postal code, neighbourhood or census tract area.
