Loveall, a volunteer at Empower Up, has an intriguing history of
working for the county and continues to use his skills to better the
community. He worked for 23 years with the county and spent his last
13 years there as a programmer and cartographer. For a large portion
of those years he worked as lead programmer for the County’s
revolutionary Geographical Information Service (GIS). For that
project he was required, along with 21 one others at the program’s
highest point, to bring together terabytes of spatial and
attributable data. His team was successful after four difficult years
of work on their state-of-the-art project. The GIS system has come in
handy for many residents of the region as it is possible to research
the value of neighbor’s, client’s, and personal property
holdings. Check out the website by clicking here or
