What is a GIS?

Most local government operations, policies, and plans depend on accurate, location-based information. A geographic information system (GIS) is a framework for gathering, managing and analysing this spatial data.  
A GIS combines layers of information into maps, reports, dashboards, and other applications. These visualisations contribute to improved decision making by elected and appointed officials, and provide access to public information. 

The following maps include detail on land and properties, services and facilities, district planning, and the ability to view aerial photography.
