Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Using tools such as aerial photographs and the global positioning system (GPS), the GIS team gathers and processes spatial coordinates, topology and dimensions of fixed physical objects such as buildings, rivers and roads, and translates the raw data into usable information. Combined with a strategic vision, this data provides a powerful system capable of analyzing complex information regarding our physical environment. Trained personnel use this information to create digital and paper maps of extraordinary detail, plan for future growth, perform trend modeling, monitor environmental changes, assess security and disaster requirements, and efficiently dispatch emergency services.
