Geographic Information Systems (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.
Over 85% of decisions in municipal government involve location. In one way or another, every department relies on geography to support its day-to-day operations. GIS helps answer questions and solve problems by looking at data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared. Choosing sites, targeting market segments, responding to emergencies, or redrawing boundaries are all problems involving questions of geography.
