GIS and Information Technology
GIS provides the power to fully utilize information and discover relationships between geographic data. Maps connect information with the surrounding world to help assess, implement, and evaluate our decisions. Maps can also tell stories from the past, depict our current surroundings, and bring life to plans of the future. MVPC has demonstrated expertise in cartography and regularly creates maps depicting a variety of themes.
Working with municipal departments in the region, the GIS staff have created maps showing property parcels, zoning, open space, the transportation and transit network, utility infrastructure, open space and historic inventories. These are just a few examples of the broad range of mapping available through MVPC’s GIS Program.
Maps connect people to the infrastructure and resources around them.
