Deep Dive into Data

GIS reveals deeper insights into data and helps to communicate data more clearly

GIS is a database of information — a virtual representation of real world data in real time. GIS organizes and integrates many data sets from a variety of sources and departments into visualizations using infographics, maps, and 3D scenes. With this unique capability, GIS reveals deeper insights into data such as patterns, relationships, dependencies, and situations. Dynamic tools simplify the presentation of information in a highly-visual, easy to understand format. Staff, elected officials, and the public are equipped to make more informed decisions.

Move your data into the 21st century with GIS by replacing paper forms with ultra-efficient, map-driven apps, and forms for your smartphone or tablet. While in the field, GIS users can record, photograph, and video countless observations and sync the data automatically using ESRI’s apps like Field Maps, Survey 123, or QuickCapture for tasks such as code enforcement, permits, and erosion control compliance. All data across departments may be stored on a single platform, no more silos.

From tracking work orders and staff assignments to optimal routing, GIS can increase operational efficiencies. Seamless integration of ArcGIS apps enables the right worker to go to the right place with the right tools to do the right job. Dispatchers and field workers can be provided real-time awareness and access to the same data for increased productivity and efficiency.

GIS offers new ways to engage with data. GIS can be configured to allow public access, including the ability to view CIP projects, report street light outages, identify the location of a loose dog, or choose the preferred location for a new park. Accessible on all connected devices, the StoryMaps app is an excellent tool to present project information data or create a map tour to help visitors explore a district and/or discover, find, and learn about attractions.
