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 Town uses GIS in almost every department - for sewer, water, and road projects, urban and regional planning, parks and forestry, emergency planning, preparedness and dispatch, economic development and more. The uses of this technology are limited only by your imagination.
