Geographic Information System (GIS)


GIS is a spatial database system that provides powerful decision making tools public governance from producing simple hard copy maps to analyzing complex crime patterns. GIS tools are used by emergency responders to respond to accidents, housing specialists to analyze the quality and condition of housing, environmentalists to identify the location of hazardous waste sites, social service workers to identify the location of elderly and disabled, waste management officials to route vehicles, police to analyze crime patterns, public works crew to maintain road inventory, etc..

GIS plays a key role in meeting emergency mapping needs of counties and cities within the East Texas Region.
