Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
The GIS Coordinator is responsible for managing comprehensive spatial information and performing geographic analysis to assist City departments, as well as delivery of interactive maps, planning/management tools 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 is 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 can not be observed from tables and descriptions alone
- Information commonly has a geographic component and once organized spatially, seemingly disparate information can relate 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.
