making digital information more easily accessible to citizens
What is GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) is a valuable tool for problem solving and decision
making. This advanced technology organizes a government's digital geographic data
and puts it at a user's fingertips in a functional and adaptable format.
GIS can integrate hardware, software and data to manage all forms of geographically
referenced information such as water flows, tax assessor maps and records, zoning,
and health information.
Viewing and interpreting information along certain criteria, such as time period or
location, becomes possible, revealing trends. Users can also view data in a variety
of formats including maps, charts and graphs.

Geographic Information Systems Data Development:
We provide a complete GIS solution—from data creation to employee training to no-obligation advice. Our local government team's technical expertise and training allows us to place a strong emphasis on data quality and practical training. We can create new data by building specialized data sets or enhancing existing GIS data. Our GIS and IT staffs can assist county governments in negotiating the challenges of implementing and managing a GIS project. We put a strong emphasis on coordinating GIS activities with surrounding jurisdictions, state and federal agencies.
We have a vast amount of experience working with Georgia state agencies on a wide variety of GIS projects.
