The members of the Cheyenne and Laramie County Cooperative GIS Program have accomplished many projects for the benefit of the program users and the public. Several are worth mentioning as they required agreements to coordinate resources and go beyond the departmental projects created on a daily basis.
Emergency Preparedness Connectivity was established between the core GIS departments and the emergency and law enforcement agencies to enhance the ability to share GIS data in a timely manner. The "sneaker net" was virtually eliminated. Connectivity diagram
Internet Map Service was created using E-Map grant funds to educate the public on water and other environmental issues. This interactive map was one successful product of this project and currently is available to view water and wastewater system information. The site also focuses on Laramie County Assessor GIS data and a variety of local datasets.

Aerial photography-2005 collection at 6-inch and 2-foot resolution. Included 2-foot contours for 6-inch study area. Funding agencies included City of Cheyenne, Laramie County Government, Board of Public Utilities, School District #1, Cheyenne and Laramie County Health Department, Cheyenne Metropolitan Planning Organization, F.E. Warren Air Force Base and United States Geological Survey. Map of study area A comprehensive imagery guideline and inventory is available for our GIS members and users.
Continuously Operating Reference Station (CORS) at Laramie County Community College was installed through the efforts of the Professional Land Surveyors of Wyoming Southeast Chapter, Laramie County Community College and the Bureau of Land Management/Wyoming State Office. The station is managed by the Wyoming NGS representative and correction files are served through the National Geodetic Survey and the Laramie County Government. Check it out at CORS GPS Data.
Real Time Reference Network was established in 2008 in an effort to help the GIS technicians improve the accuracy of the GIS Cooperative data framework or grid. This network uses Leica Geosystems Spider Net technology and is managed by Hixon Mfg. & Supply of Fort Collins, Colorado. Access to the network can be arranged by contacting Hixon at www.hixonmfg.com. Station hosts include the City of Cheyenne, Gilchrist Elementary School (Laramie County School District #1), Burns Jr/Sr High School (Laramie County School District #2) and Chugwater Schools (Platte County School District). Contact the GIS Cooperative Coordinator for further details.
Aerial Photograph-2010 collection includes 6-inch resolution for 500 square miles of Cheyenne and Laramie County and 1-foot resolution for all of Laramie County. Funding agencies include Cheyenne Metropolitan Planning Organization, Laramie County, Board of Public Utilities, City of Cheyenne, Laramie County School District #1, Cheyenne and Laramie County Health Department, United States Geological Survey, Cheyenne Airport Board, Town of Burns, and Town of Pine Bluffs. Map of study area. A comprehensive imagery guideline and inventory is available for our GIS members and users.
Updated Parcel Viewer This project was initiated by the Laramie County Assessor as a means of providing CAMA data to the public for querying and display, including building characteristics and current values as they may be released by law. Open government and public records initiatives were the driving force behind our continued efforts of serving the public to the best of our ability. The GIS Program members contributed data and resources to accomplish the upgraded web site with design and initial implementation provided by Greenwood Mapping of Wilson, Wyoming. Special thanks to the Assessor, Cheyenne and Laramie County Health Department, Laramie County Information Technology and Laramie County GIS for their financial contributions and all the GIS Program members for sharing their data resources.
