Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is defined as an information system that is used to input, store, retrieve, manipulate, analyze and output geographically referenced data or geospatial data, in order to support decision making for planning and management of land use, natural resources, environment, transportation, urban facilities and other administrative records. The GIS department is located in the Public Services Department.
Our mission is to develop, manage, and maintain an accurate geographic information system to facilitate and enhance decision making processes to support the City of Winchester.
