Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Geographic Information System (GIS) is an integrated collection of computer software and data used to view and manage information about geographic places, analyze spatial relationships, and model spatial processes. GIS provides a framework of gathering, organizing, and sharing spatial data and related information in order to allow others to make better, more informed spatial decisions.

GIS technology allows users to investigate and question the relationships created by linking databases to locations or places. The results can then be displayed in the form of a map, graph or a tabular report.

The division of GIS has a core mission to provide solutions that continue to integrate GIS technology into the City of Lincoln departmental workflows and business processes to increase productivity and improve efficiency enabling City Staff to deliver stellar service to the City of Lincoln.
