What is a GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) is a computer mapping
system capable of assembling, storing, manipulating, and displaying
geographically referenced information (i.e. spatial data).
Local governments (Counties/Cities) typically involve a variety of agencies
including assessors, auditors, engineering, planning, public works, public
safety, recorders, treasurers, and zoning. These agencies are relying more on
GIS technology to plan new land developments, determine tax valuations, maintain
real estate land records, manage public works networks, route emergency
vehicles, analyze crime and accident patterns, manage transportation systems and
study environmental issues.
