What is GIS?


Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a program where information of a geographic nature is stored and used electronically.  The City of Jacksonville is in the process of digitizing all its maps and other information, including waterlines, street, properties, historical markers, etc.  The benefits of this program are many-fold, from simple location and inventory of fire hydrants, to improved decision making and more accurate public information.
