What is GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends.

If your data has location, then GIS technology can help your organization. Nearly 80% of all data we work with has a location component, whether it is a street address, a zip code, a town, or a very specific latitude/longitude point.
GIS for Town Supervisors and Mayors, Boards, Water/Sewer District and Highway Superintendents, Assessors, Public Safety and Codes Departments
Whether you are the town supervisor, historical society director or public works manager, having access to your community's data within a GIS can make doing your job much easier. For example, a GIS can:
- Realign zoning districts
- Help prioritize road maintenance projects
- Provide visual aids for board and department meetings
- Generate abutters lists at the push of a button
- Monitor the health of your community's watershed
- Present well-documented alternatives when choosing parcels for open space preservation
- Create maps for town or village strategic plans
- Maintain and display crime data to determine "hot spots" and develop deterrents
