Yakima County GIS uses Arc/Info version 8.2 and Arcview 3.2 as the core GIS software. We also use SAS version 8 to analyze statistical and GIS data.

Our hardware configuration consists of a Sun 280R (dual processor) and a Dell 4400 LINUX sever (Redhat) and 1 tb of storage. Arc/Info users rely on X-terminal emulation software on Win2000 workstations to connect to the UNIX server.

Arcview users connect via SAMBA. This centralizes the data bases and coverages which provides for easier maintenance. 10/100/1000 mb network switches creates a collision domain to prevent the large amount of GIS data from over-running the county network.
