GIS (Geographic Information System) enables the public and all City departments to make data driven decisions by visualizing data on various temporal and spatial scales. GIS strives to engage the public through the use of online applications and services to increase data transparency and sharing. In addition, GIS provides City departments with cartographic services, geospatial analysis, and programming to help employees improve business processes in order to provide the public with the best service possible.
