A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a type of information system that is used to produce and manage geographic data.  This data is instrumental in helping the department meet its overall mission.  For example, zoning boundaries, city limit boundaries, and street address data are input into the GIS.  The data can be used to produce a wide variety of maps.  Other City departments make use of the wide variety of 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 GIS also plays a significant role in supporting emergency management services for the City. 

 

 

Concord GIS Web Viewer
(an interactive Web-based GIS mapping system)

This mapping system uses Microsoft Silverlight (a free web-browser plug-in from Microsoft). If Silverlight is not currently installed, a message will appear prompting for a quick and easy installation.  This mapping application should work in Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla FireFox.  Google Chrome no longer supports Silverlight, and thus this mapping system will not function in the Google Chrome web-browser.
