What is a Geographic Information System?

A Geographic Information System (GIS) displays geographically-referenced information in the form of electronic map displays. 

  • Map data appears in the form of various

    data layers

    (e.g. Buildings, Roads, Parcels), many of which can be queried for more detail. 
  • Map

    layouts

    can be modified to suit your needs by panning and zooming to the appropriate extent, and turning layers on and off as you please.
  • You may

    print your own map

    layout from the online map; you may also view and/or print various prepared maps.
