Geographic Information Systems

The Department of Planning and Economic Development is a primary resource for the geographic information and analyses required for effective operation of municipal government. 


A computerized geographic information system (GIS) stores data describing a wide variety of geographic features. Powerful software technology allows for the visualization of multiple data layers on maps and the analysis of spatial relationships among features.
