City of Fairburn Selects McLean Engineering for GIS Mapping

The City of Fairburn, Ga., has selected McLean Engineering Company to provide GIS mapping services for Fairburn Utilities.

Fairburn 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 Fairburn 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.  

Fairburn has worked with McLean Engineering and Electric Cities of Georgia (ECG) staff to include a variety of layers and information sources on its map, including water, gas, electric layers, tax parcel information, and the map grid used for paper truck maps.

“We are very pleased with the mapping product, pricing and service we have received from McLean Engineering throughout this process.  We look forward to getting a great return on this investment for Fairburn Utilities for years to come,” said Gene Fritz, Director of Utilities at the City of Fairburn.
