It is with this challenge in mind that the City of Penticton selected Esri Canada to provide a solution. The City of Penticton adopted Esri Roads and Highways, a linear referencing system (LRS) solution to get a comprehensive view of their roadways. This helped in the ease of visualizing and maintaining road networks, creating transparency and eliminating data silos. As a result, encouraging city-wide consumption of data and participation in data management; laying the foundation for a smart future.
