Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is an organized collection of computer hardware, software, geographic data, and personnel designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate, analyze, and display all forms of geographically referenced information often in form of maps. The Development Services Departmentís GIS Division works as a guiding and directing partner within
