Geographic Information ServicesAbout Us

The role of the Geographic Information Services is to advance and promote the use of GIS within the City, to represent the City's GIS interests to outside agencies, and to facilitate the access by the public to the City's spatial data. In order to advance the use of GIS, the GIS Division has the following primary roles:

  • Identifying and proposing hardware/software solutions to solve GIS issues.
  • Serve as the City's spatial data repository.
  • Serve as GIS liaisons to Departments lacking their own expertise.


In order to facilitate public access to the City's spatial data the GIS Division maintains the GIS Website where public access to spatial data is granted. Here the public can retrieve data for their personal use. To view geographical data you will need ArcExplorer Software. Please note the online mapping applications area of this website will not work with Macintosh Computers.
