Web Site Upgrades



August 27, 2009 By

Recently, California, Michigan and Utah upgraded their state Web sites. In addition, Missouri launched a 2010 census site. The state estimates that Missouri could lose $1.3 million over the next decade for every 100 citizens not counted in the 2010 census and could potentially lose a congressional seat. According to Missouri officials, more than $300 billion in federal spending is distributed to state and local governments, community organizations and health care providers every year based on census data.

Michigan Gov. Granholm yesterday announced the state's Helping Hand Web site, through which residents can find programs and services that may assist them with jobs and training, unemployment benefits, health care, family support and housing. Danville, Calif., deployed a Web-based property review application, built by Farallon Geographics. The site is built on open standards and uses Google maps imagery so that staff can query and display property ownership, taxation and jurisdiction information.
