Moore County GIS Department and Randy Gould, Public Works Director, was honored with the G. Herbert Stout Award at the 2013 NCGIS Conference on February 7 in Raleigh, NC. The “Herb Stout Award” honors local government for exemplary use of GIS. The awards committee presents three awards to: (1) city or town government; (2) county government; and (3) regional or local/regional authority. The GIS Department won the Herb Stout Award for use of GIS with the Hydraulic Distribution Water Modeling within a county government.
The Moore County GIS department feels it chosen out of a long list of candidates because the hydraulic distribution water model project strengthened the GIS enterprise and enhanced effective communication between departments. Randy Gould came into Moore County and brought great knowledge and excitement for the hydraulic distribution water modeling, that helped the GIS and Public Utilities Departments take it to that next level. The GIS department also feels this award is great recognition for the level of work they have been maintaining over the years under the leadership of Chris Koltyk. Former winners of this award include: Mecklenburg, Wake, Johnston and Buncombe County. Moore County feels like they are in a very distinguished list of GIS Professionals.
The Herb Stout Award committee also came down to the Board of Commissioners meeting to honor the GIS Department on February 19, 2013.
The second annual Government Innovation Grant Award (GIGa) Innovation Showcase & Luncheon was held in February of 2013. Rafe Esquith served as the keynote and spoke on how to . Mr. Esquith is the author of Teach Like Your Hair's On Fire and There Are No Shortcuts.
After lunch, the 2012 GIGa applicants showcased video submissions to the audience. The ideas ranged from a co-operative education projects to service management applications. A panel of state CIOs voted on the written submissions to select the top 3 awards; however, the YouTube users voted for the Best Video.

As Charlotte prepares to host next year's Democratic National Convention, the city is looking for ways to use its GIS. Most recently Charlotte teamed with Esri to create Virtual Charlotte, a public-facing, Google Maps-style website that makes use of the city's GIS to provide data to both field workers and citizens.
