Esri ArcGIS technology provides the foundation and the platform for Philippine local government units (LGUs) to transform themselves digitally, and into becoming smart and safe.

To govern efficiently, effectively and transparently, it is necessary for LGUs to work on one map. More specifically, departments – engineering, health, population, civil registry, planning, social works, public safety, etc. – can work on a single map. In doing so, a provincial governor or a mayor can make timely and better decisions by seeing the big picture.

With Esri ArcGIS technology, you can see the complete picture of your province, city, or municipality using a single map. ArcGIS provides a multi-intelligence platform that allows the various departments of a Provincial, City or Municipal government to share, assimilate, cross-analyze, and visualize each others data. And with a dashboard, a Governor or a Mayor can make timely, better decisions.

4 Steps To Create A Successful Strategy that supports a Smart Community

ArcGIS Platform

Build a Location Strategy

A location strategy enables a LGU to prioritise the GIS applications it needs. A LGU can analyze issues department by department or tackle a singular department (such as the DRRM office or City/Municipal Health Officer) to meet goals with a more limited scope, including smart infrastructure, smart buildings, healthy barangays and safe barangays.

Deliver Real Solutions

Develop Strong Relationships

[The Esri Partner Network is a community of organizations that can help a LGU get the most from its ArcGIS investment – allowing you to deliver sophisticated solutions for issues like permitting, measuring community sentiment, asset management and climate analysis. These solutions are built on top of the ArcGIS Platform and can extend customized solutions that scale with a national, provincial, and city/municipal government over time.

Start with a World-class GIS Platform

The ArcGIS platform gives LGUs the power to approach problems in a way that serves the Mayor, the city/municipal legislative body, decision-makers, citizens, field workers that use GIS. The technology supports major LGU workflows, including data collection, analysis, what-if scenarios, operational awareness and civic engagement.

Location Strategy

Deliver Real Solutions

LGUs manage big challenges: improving infrastructure, mitigating disasters, boosting efficiency and productivity, aiding the local economy, and delivering green solutions. Esri's ArcGIS government-focused apps are complimentary for Esri users to download, and can be freely shared within the various departments of a LGU and outwards to the wider community.

Six Essentials for GIS implementation

1. Don’t overcomplicate things.
2. Forget the past.
3. Prioritize training.
4. Establish a data-sharing plan.
5. Keep IT in the loop.
6. Don’t rush to replace.

This new way of governing has some basic characteristics that distinguish it from our very recent past. It is fundamentally entrepreneurial. It is collaborative. It is relentlessly performance measured. This new and more effective way of governing operates by way of common platforms – essentially, the internet and Geographic Information Systems. For the first time, these systems make work open and visible for all to see, measure, track and, increasingly, to affect.
