Problem: The Colorado State Land Board manages millions of acres of state lands, their sales and leases, royalties from mining production, and the revenue that these lands produce for state programs. CSLB was using a combination of systems to track leases and permits, geographical data, and various accounting records, making it complicated to keep their data in sync across all departments. CSLB came to GCS to centralize this data into a single viewer and to deliver more efficient management, returning greater value to Colorado taxpayers. Solution: GCS integrated CSLB’s NetSuite with ArcGIS to connect ERP data to location. GCS assimilated data from four separate departments to build a unique web-based GIS application. The web app allows the public to easily search for and identify specific locations on State Land Board maps, while CSLB staff can log in to see restricted data and quickly run reports on their lands and revenues. Automatons allow fast, accurate updates without extensive employee training. Consolidating the data from multiple sources optimizes CSLB’s workflow and makes it easier to create reports on state holdings that generate revenue. The web app improves the public’s ability to find available lands to lease from the state with better search options, while reducing CSLB staff time in assisting. Requests for printed maps that were previously labor intensive and time consuming can now be managed directly with red line tools on the web app.
