How is GIS important?
Geospatial modeling reveals deeper insights into data, which means users have improved decision making ability. The following are some ways RaymoreGIS offers decision support:
- Through improving data spatially, seemingly disparate information can be contextually related.
- Visualization reveals situational complexities that lead to more comprehensive (and better) solutions.
- Observance of scale and spatial patterns is not possible from descriptive text alone.
- Communication between organizations is improved with reliable data exchange
- Quality data (with consistent relative accuracy) is versatile and can be suited to requirements of both situational and comprehensive use.
- Provides the ability to analyze the quality of spatial relationships
- Ready and reliable access to information improves operational efficiency & better decision making ability
- Supports dimensional attribution like space & time, for modeling.
Development Services administers the platform for departments and can provide access to geospatial information, functionality & output by request.
