GIS software is designed to capture, manage, analyze, and display all forms of geographically referenced information. A geographic information system (GIS) lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends. (Source: ESRI)
Region 2000 staff uses GIS to perform geospatial analysis by using data layers such as roads, municipal boundaries, population data, income data, infrastructure data, etc. GIS mapping is used in various regional plans and initiatives to help visualize the aformentioned data to the various audiences.
The localities in Region 2000 make parcel data—which includes addresses, owner names, sale dates, sale prices, assessments, and other property details—available through their respective GIS viewing portals.
