Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Division is charged with the identification, collection and maintenance of key geographic data within the city. GIS combines data such as utilities, infrastructure, buildings, land records, geographic features and topography, demographics and others in a way that is useful to government and community leadership. GIS data is an essential resource for economic development. GIS data is used in several city departments, including General Services, Utilities, Planning, Public Works, and the City Attorney’s Office. Our GIS Division also works with its counterparts at the McKinley County GIS Division.
