Creating, maintaining and delivering accurate, up to date geographic information resources for the City of Coos Bay staff and its citizens.
What is GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. It is a computer-based tool for mapping and analyzing things that exist and events that happen on earth. GIS technology integrates database operations and statistical analysis with the unique visualization and spatial analysis benefits offered by maps. These abilities distinguish GIS from other information systems and make it valuable to a wide range of public and private enterprises for explaining events, predicting outcomes, and planning strategies.
GIS Services is responsible for the design, development and maintenance of all enterprise GIS data utilized by the City. Additional responsibilities include map production, geospatial analysis, GPS data collection/processing, software/hardware configuration and web map publication.
