Geographic Information Systems

A Geographic Information System (GIS)  is a set of computer hardware and software that uses geographic data taken from maps, GPS units, satellites, and aerial imagery and connects those features with a database in order to manage, maintain, analyze, and display multiple types of information.

Departments and services utilizing GIS include Public Works, City Planners, Emergency Services, Neighborhood & Tourism, Economic Development and the Public at large.
