Who We Are

Over 30 Years Experience

iOpenGov is a product of Citygate GIS.

In 2016, Citygate celebrated its 30th year of providing services focused in the areas of software development and information technology consulting services. During this time, Citygate has implemented products and applications throughout North America, multiple military and civilian organizations, utilities, and agencies in Europe, Africa and Australia.

Citygate’s success is a direct result of a corporate focus in developing solutions which push the frontiers of technology and create new and innovative products.

In 2012, Citygate began the development of the iOpenGov suite of solutions. Today, the technology has been in development for over 5 years. In 2014 the State of Maryland selected Citygate’s iOpenDecision system for implementation in the State’s Department of Transportation. The application is used for prioritization of the State’s Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) in the area of Transportation. iOpenDecision allows individuals at multiple modal agencies to collaborate in the development of the State’s transportation budget and to prioritize construction and development projects worth an estimated 4 Billion Dollars.
