GIS - A Significant Investment that Yields Tremendous Results
Advancements in technology can be leveraged by municipalities to make their jobs not only more efficient but also more effective. The acquisition and implementation of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a significant investment but it can yield tremendous results when used to collect and analyze data. This program will discuss how local governments can get the most out of their investment in GIS and how it can be integrated into all facets of local government: public safety, infrastructure management, land use planning, emergency management, economic development and citizen engagement just to name a few. Learn how to utilize the data and technology to share information, improve decision making and streamline operations. This session will include an overview of GIS and its capabilities. Real-word examples illustrating the successful implementation of GIS at the local level will be highlighted.
