What is GIS?
It stands for: Geographic Information Systems
Yes, we make maps with computers, but is that it?
No. The purpose of GIS is to help decision making by leveraging location
GIS takes the numbers and words from the rows and columns of databases and spreadsheets and puts them on the map. Now you can see patterns and ask new questions.
Which communicates better?
With over 180 layers of data to overlay, map and analyze. 26,000+ edits last month
We have new aerial imagery coming this fall (flown this spring)

So, what are we doing now?
Questions?
We're trying to bridge gaps in City knowledge
(besides keeping up with day-to-day requests)
We started an address project in 2007 that continues today...
...to connect multiple City databases geographically via an address
Zoning
Building Permits
Business Licenses (RDL)
Customer Service
Police Calls
Ombudsman
Fire/Medical Calls
We're researching a new project to show citizens their energy consumption...
...in the context of the age and size of their homes, which will hopefully help them make their homes more energy efficient.
Home size: 2100 sq feet
Home age: 12 years
Avg energy use: 734 kwh
And we are re-writing Gisweb, our successful
internal web application to expand it's
functionality and data.
