GIS (Geographic Information System) is the combination of people, hardware, software, data, and procedures to analyze information based on its geographic location. When information is tied to a location, the information can be displayed and analyzed to better understand relationships between different information based on geography. The use of GIS technology in the City is a critical component of the decision-making process throughout the entire organization and it promotes the efficient use of resources by giving staff the ability to manage such information based on its geography.
Some of GIS's responsibilities are the following:
Create and maintain City data and maps
Deploy GIS at different City facilities
Keep the information technology infrastructure up-to-date
Periodically update data from Broward County GIS
Annually update property and tax data from the Broward County Property Appraiser
