Geographic Information System (GIS)

GIS - Acknowledgement & Information

  1. What is GIS?


    Local governments use GIS (Geographic Information System) to identify and analyze data graphically. GIS displays information about parcels and property lines, building structures, neighborhoods, roads, addresses, zoning, resource protection areas, trails, and parks, just to name a few. This mapping information can be queried, displayed, spatially analyzed, edited/overlaid, and linked to other databases for the purposes of citizen response, planning, preservation, and public safety initiatives. GIS is an essential tool used daily by many City departments.
