What is a geographic information system?
A geographic information system (GIS) is a set of computer-based tools that aid in the collection, management, storage, analysis, mapping, and distribution of spatial data. Geographic information systems transform multi-layered, complex datasets into understandable and useable information, leading to better and more informed decisions.
The use of GIS mapping has grown substantially over the past decade, driven primarily by advances in technology which have made it increasingly easy to access, manipulate, and analyze spatial data across a variety of platforms anytime and anywhere.
Jones & DeMille Engineering has been using GIS tools for more than 20 years to help clients transform data into actionable information. GIS allows for communities to better visualize and manage their overall systems and existing assets, track repairs, and plan for the future.
Our broad range of GIS services helps to answer questions and solve problems by looking at data in ways that are quickly understood, easily shared, and readily accessible.
Why geographic information systems?
Many entities store information across multiple formats and environments and struggle to access and maintain information which can generate multiple inefficiencies when responding to the public or managing matters internally. Too often this information is stored in the minds of personnel, which can become challenging for others once the person leaves the organization. Effective Geographic information systems centralize information, makes it accessible across an organization, and safeguards against data loss
