A Geographic Information System (GIS) is an information system that helps produce and manage geographic data. It is also used to generate a variety of maps and mapping tools. In the Planning Department, the GIS section creates geographic data and administers GIS applications designed to support the mission and activities of the department. Other City departments and divisions make use of the GIS data as well, thereby enhancing the efficiency, productivity, and accuracy of various City services. For example, GIS is used to help route, organize, and schedule solid waste collection in the City. The division also maintains software and data to support implementation of the zoning ordinance, the neighborhood program, and community development programs to name a few. The GIS also plays a significant role in supporting emergency management services for the City.
