Upstate Planning

Street Knowledge is a cost efficient GIS system that allows even fiscally constrained municipalities to provide their staff and the public with the efficiencies and analyses of GIS technologies. Upstate Planning has developed this GIS/Planning web-based interface program specifically with rural communities in mind. All that is required of your staff is basic computer skills. With training provided by Upstate, you can instantly realize the benefits and cost-savings associated with implementing Street Knowledge GIS.

Upstate designs each Street Knowledge package for the particular needs of each municipality. Using the customized Street Knowledge Level 1 package, your staff can instantly:

- Determine property address and APN information
- Answer public counter questions regarding zoning, general plan designations, and more
- Create owner notification mailing lists
- Create instant project maps

Additional data layers that can be added to your Street Knowledge package include:

- Aerial imagery
- Infrastructure location
- School, Mello-Roos, and other district locations
- Natural hazards location (flood zones, dam inundation areas, seismically sensitive areas, etc.
- Stream, wetland, endangered species habitat, etc., location
- Demographic information (Census 2000)
- Property ownership data
- Crime data
- Instant public notice form letters meeting CEQA guidelines requirements

Street Knowledge can also be linked directly with existing City/County regulations, codes, and permitting information. In addition, Upstate provides technical support and our expert GIS staff are available daily to provide specific data queries, print large format maps, or provide more extensive GIS products.

Upstate Planning prides itself on bridging the gap between the geographic data and end users. Upstate develops custom software applications including web-based GIS viewers, map and report automation, and database interfaces. Upstate has developed proprietary software that enables local jurisdictions web-based access to their geographic and infrastructure data. The software is intended to broaden the application and usership of GIS technology and data.
