FRANKFORT, KY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 2, 2006 -- The City of Raleigh, N.C., has selected PlanGraphics, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PGRA) to support the city's geographic information system (GIS) emergency operations, including development of an emergency GIS data model and a prototype incident information display and tracking application based on a GIS emergency plan previously prepared by PlanGraphics for the city.

PlanGraphics will perform the following tasks:

--  Information collection and analysis -- to collect detailed information
    on requirements
    
--  Requirements analysis and definition of functional requirements -- a
    structured analysis to define the specific requirements for the emergency
    GIS database and incident information application
    
--  Design of emergency GIS data model -- a preliminary logical data model
    and a physical data model that will include a data dictionary
    
--  Design and prototype of the incident information display and tracking
    application -- the prototype will contain the design and layout of the
    general graphical user interface
    
--  Assistance to Raleigh staff in application development and
    documentation -- based on the prototype, PlanGraphics' programmers will
    work with Raleigh personnel in the development of the production
    application
    
--  GIS emergency plan review and update -- PlanGraphics will review the
    original GIS emergency plan that was completed in 2003. Based on this
    review, PlanGraphics will recommend updates to the plan and changes in GIS
    technology and emergency best practices including definition of priority
    activities for continued implementation.
    
Executive Consultant Pete Croswell will manage the project, and Mike Kevany, a PlanGraphics senior vice president, will have an important participating role. Both were engaged in PlanGraphics' previous work with the city.
