Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
The GIS Coordinator is responsible for creating information graphics and performing geographic analysis to assist City departments, as well as delivery of interactive maps and geographic data to the enterprise and outside parties on request.
GIS is a system of five components; hardware, software, data, people, and methods that are designed to capture, manage, analyze and present differing types of spatial information.
The following are some of the benefits of GIS:
- Most people are visual learners. Cartographic maps allow visualization of information, making it easier to understand situational complexities and effectively solve problems
- Scale and spatial patterns that may be inherent in information can not be observed from tables and descriptions alone
- Information commonly has a geographic component and once organized spatially, seemingly disparate datasets can be related to each other in the context of a map
- Ready and reliable access to information improves decision making ability and operational efficiency
- GIS is versatile and can be suited to requirements of both situational and comprehensive use
- Visit ArcGIS Online at http://raymore.maps.arcgis.com to access interactive web mapping.
