What is GIS?
The Geographic Information System, or GIS is a geographically aware array of hardware, software, and data that has captured spatially referenced information pertaining to our city operations. It is used to manage, visualize, analyze, and reveal patterns and relationships on all forms of spatially aware data.

Other essential data such as, but not limited to, parcels, zoning, and aerial imagery are captured and managed utilizing GIS. Click Here to return to the GIS Portal page.
