I.1. About the City
The City of Berkeley (City) is located in Alameda County on the east side of the San Francisco Bay. At the
geographic midpoint of the greater San Francisco Bay Area, the City is 20 minutes from San Francisco and within
easy proximity to population centers in Contra Costa County and Silicon Valley. Encompassing 17.69 square miles
and with a population of 120,000 residents, Berkeley has the highest population density of any city in the East Bay
region. The City is defined to a large degree, both culturally and economically, by the presence of the University of
California campus located on the eastern side of the City.
The City operates under its own charter with a Council/Manager form of government. The City Council consists of
eight Councilmembers and one Mayor, elected for four-year terms. The City provides a comprehensive set of
community services common to similar-sized California cities such as public safety (police and fire); sanitation and
sewer; public maintenance and infrastructure; leisure (parks, recreation and marina); animal control; planning and
development (land use, building & safety, code enforcement, permitting, sustainability); general and administrative
services, and housing advocacy and support services. In addition, the City offers support services for public health
and human services, and a City-owned public library system.
The Mayor and Council select and confirm the City Manager, who acts as Chief Executive Officer for the day-to-
day operations of the City government. The City Manager is responsible for the administration of City services and
programs, enforcement of the City's Municipal Code and ordinances, and preparation of the annual budget.
Department directors are selected by the City Manager and confirmed by the City Council.

I.2. Project Background
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) support the activities of the City and its community. The City of Berkeley
Enterprise GIS empowers staff and the community to make decisions that impact the future of the City of Berkeley
in a conversant and logical approach.
Imagery data has become one of the most useful layers available in GIS. Imagery today is typically very accurate
spatially and provides a snapshot of real world conditions. It can be used to understand real world relationships of
terrestrial features more readily than other GIS data.
360-degree Street Level Imagery provides an immediate and comprehensive overview of the public right-of-way.
Using this imagery, staff will be able to view, analyze, measure, and extract infrastructure assets without leaving
the office. Efficiency gains expected are as follows:
Save time, effort, and money by doing virtual inspections and automated asset management
Optimize asset inventory & condition assessment (Public Works)
Optimize and update building and zoning review processes (Planning)
Respond to emergencies with knowledge and confidence through detailed emergency response plans and
better situational awareness (Public Safety)
Monitor, analyze and document existing street conditions (Transportation)
The City wishes to engage a vendor to acquire current 360-degree Street Level Imagery that fully integrates into the
City’s existing GIS environment and provides tools for measuring, viewing, and extracting data.
