A geographic information system (GIS) is a system that creates, manages, analyzes, and maps all types of data. GIS connects data to a map, integrating location data with all types of descriptive information. This provides a foundation for mapping and analysis that is used throughout the organization. GIS helps users understand patterns, relationships, and geographic context. The benefits include improved communication and efficiency as well as better management and decision-making.How is GIS used?
The City of Perrysburg currently uses GIS in many different ways ranging from simple map production, precise GPS data collection, to complex utility network management. Both the Fire and Police Divisions make use of GIS as well as the Engineering Division, Planning & Zoning Division, Department of Public Utilities, and the Department of Public Service. GIS not only helps City employees, but the general public as well.
Through our web apps and Open Data Portal, Perrysburg is able to provide vast amounts of information to the public.
All of these services, both public-facing and internal to the City, are designed to improve transparency, operate more efficiently, make finding information easier for the public, and provide a better quality of life to the citizens of Perrysburg.
