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
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.
