Please stay informed, follow public health orders, and do whatever you can to stay home so we can get through this, together, and start our recovery. Thank you for your support during this during this rapidly evolving, unprecedented time.
A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.
GIS links information (attributes) to location data; such as people to addresses, buildings to parcels, or streets to city limits within a network.
As a mapping tool, a GIS combines layers of information to explain events, predict outcomes, plan strategies, and give a better understanding of a location and its surroundings.
A GIS can generate maps, globes, reports, or graphs depending on the user’s needs.
