“With our increased population growth, the demand for new utilities such as fiber optic, and the need for major improvements to our water and sewer systems, it became apparent that we needed to find a more efficient and accurate method for managing our city’s assets,” stated Alberto Aldana, City Engineer Weslaco. “After exploring what solutions could meet our needs, it became quite apparent that PointMan was the best choice.”
Weslaco was founded in 1919 and is located at the southern tip of Texas along the Rio Grande and Mexican border. It is home to over 41,000 residents and three nature parks. Weslaco is known for its international trade and thriving agricultural communities.
“A large number of the over 50,000 small municipalities in the U.S. still rely on paper map systems to manage their critical assets, including buried utility systems,” stated Page Tucker, CEO of ProStar. “The digital era is upon us, and we are well positioned to help these small municipalities make the digital transformation with an affordable and easy-to-use cloud and mobile GIS solution.”
Weslaco is a city in Hidalgo County, Texas, and is located at the southern tip of Texas in the Rio Grande Valley near the Mexican border, across the Rio Grande from the city of Nuevo Progreso, Rio Bravo, Tamaulipas. Weslaco derives its name from The W.E. Stewart Land Company and is the hometown of Harlon Block, one of the Marines photographed raising the flag at Iwo Jima. During World War II, sandbag production peaked in Weslaco, and the town declared itself the “sandbagging capital of the world”. Weslaco is a dynamic, growing city with easy transportation, plenty of shops, restaurants, and cultural arts.
