Geographic Information SystemsGeographic Information Systems (GIS) provide field-verified spatial information data that is extensively used by numerous applications in all City departments:
- Fixed Object Description: Associating GIS data with any kind of immobile object (streets, buildings, light poles, trees, etc.) provides essential information for planning, engineering and maintenance activities.
- Moving Object Description: GIS data derived from tools, mobile phones and vehicles allows applications to monitor movement, determine current locations, and correlate events with moving and fixed objects.
- Maps: Fixed and moving objects can be visualized on static and dynamic maps, from simple printed maps to real-time electronic wall boards in our 911 Emergency Dispatch Center.
