A look at Whanganui District Councils GIS Stack implemented with FOSS4G solutions.

For Whanganui District Council, implementing an FOSS4G GIS stack provides a cost-effective alternative to proprietary GIS software, as well as greater flexibility and control over the entire GIS system.

A GIS stack is a collection of software and tools used in Geographic Information System (GIS) applications to store, manage, manipulate, analyze, and display geospatial data. The stack typically includes several components, each with its own purpose and functionality, that work together to provide a complete GIS solution.

The new FOSS4G GIS Stack has benefited Council greatly through; significant recurring cost savings, greater functionality, new functionality driven by community, improved service levels and no loss of Integration with other Council systems.
