City of Cairo Selects McLean Engineering

The City of Cairo, Ga., has selected McLean Engineering Company to provide GIS mapping after a positive experience with McLean Engineering’s pole attachment support for its Electric Utility.

As part of their joint use attachment agreement, Cairo was due to conduct a pole attachment count and joint use inventory on its system in the fall of 2013.  Cairo selected McLean Engineering to provide this count in an effort to improve relationships with its attachers and improve its maps in the process.

Following the successful conclusion of the pole attachment count, Cairo has selected McLean Engineering’s MapLayers program, a GIS platform built with small utilities in mind. MapLayers’ cloud-based, user-friendly software offers powerful functions for electric utility mapping, joint use attachment counts, as well as other utilities and city departments and mobile accessibility. Most importantly, this approach is low-cost and flexible, which allows Cairo to maintain flexibility and control of its data and makes it easy to afford the cost of keeping maps up-to-date – the most essential function of any map.
