In 2012 I developed an application for the City of Greater Sudbury. They were looking for something simple and configurable, and they wanted to re-purpose it for different City departments quickly.
At the same time we were working on the project, a new $3B Chromite mine was announced in Sudbury, so the project got a name…
It does search, email, and print. It meets the goals of simplicity and manageability, and it does some really interesting things to make Search work at a technical level.
The key part of this app is that the Parks and Recreation data is all loaded into a single Search feature class, and all of the searching, popups, and configuration is driven by data contained in the search feature service – which is published on ArcGIS Online.
The code and FME tools to manage the search service are all available if you are interested.
