GIS is an invaluable tool used to capture, store, analyze, manage, and present data. GIS allows us to visualize and identify relationships, patterns and trends in data (such as public improvements, property locations, and service calls) in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.  Our ability to map and visually present data to public agencies and their stakeholders provides an additional dimension in data analysis through the visual representation of spatial relationships, allowing public agencies to process large amounts of data effectively, making information more accessible to the community, therefore enhancing public agencies ability to make informed decisions.
