Gis uses government

GIS Uses: Government

  • National, State, and Local Governments use GIS to:

  • Redistrict precincts

  • Provide voter information

  • Develop economic resources

  • Track land records

  • Assess Taxes

Environmental Engineers use GIS to minimize impacts of urbanization to sensitive environmental areas.

City infrastructure local government administration

City Infrastructure – Local Government Administration

  • A parcel map is perhaps the most convenient resource available to the public to determine the location and parcel identification number of a property.

    • Property evaluation

    • Compliance to local ordinances

    • Expansion of municipal utilities

  • An adequate parcel map should reflect size and shape of each individual parcel owned in a town. Many town officials (assessors, planners, engineers, and others) use parcel maps on a daily basis, that is why it is very important that parcel maps should show the most current and updated information.

City infrastructure local government administration1

City Infrastructure – Local Government Administration

  • Development of computer technologies along with geographic information systems (GIS) created opportunities to conduct this work more efficiently. It is much easier to store, maintain and update a digital map than an analog paper map. Digital parcel mapping also simplifies the process of locating the information about any of the parcels and markedly reduces time necessary for making changes and printing new copies of the maps on paper.


City infrastructure local government administration2

City Infrastructure – Local Government Administration

  • Digital parcel maps can be integrated into a more general geographic information system that will allow users to maintain and retrieve the record of zoning, land use, conservation easements, etc. Due to increased efficiency of tax map management and the potential for valuable GIS applications, many towns are transitioning from paper to a digital form of parcel mapping.
