What is Geographic Information Systems?


Geographic Informatiostems (GIS) is a computer based technology used to compile data, information and geographic features into maps and reports that local government officials use in decision making, managing and planning for the City. This provides a systematic way to collect, record,  and analyze public land related data. GIS allows for decisions to be made efficiently, and to be backed with reliable information.  This also provides a “one-stop” environment for geographic based information through GIS and web-based applications.
