Discover the City's Geographic Information Systems Services
Simply put, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are digital maps with intelligence. GIS is a computer technology that brings together all types of information based on geographic location for the purpose of query, analysis and generation of maps and reports.
The City uses GIS in almost every department - for sewer, water, and road projects, urban and regional planning, emergency planning, preparedness and dispatch, economic development, taxation, municipal elections, and even tracking of public health risks such as the West Nile Virus.
The uses of this technology are limited only by your imagination. This site can be used to locate municipal services, verify the location of a particular address, view aerial photos for land use, measure distances and areas, investigating tax and other property information, and much more. Developers around the world can utilize the information here to assist in finding appropriate development opportunities.
