Since 1997, Spatial Data Logic (SDL) has been an innovative provider of geographic information system (GIS) solutions.
SDL initially engineered studies of waste water user fees and analyzed utility infrastructure for various municipalities. Our clients found value in this information and often requested it to be available as a dynamic model. We also found that many of our clients needed the ability to maintain and update this information during their everyday customer service and general infrastructure management processes.
A simple application, providing easily accessible geographic and customer information without having to rely on staff, was the answer. SDL began developing applications in ESRI ArcView®, and with the introduction of MapObjects®, we greatly enhanced the concepts of the original ArcView applications. SDL Municipal Management Software emerged as a centralized solution and a robust software platform for local governments in New Jersey.
