Mapping & Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
The City of Georgetown uses a Geographic Information System (GIS) to create maps, analyze geographic information, and visually examine the geographic features of the City (ex. roads, property lines). In municipalities like Georgetown, where nearly every function of City government has a geographic dimension, the use of GIS can substantially increase efficiency and effectiveness. For this reason, GIS is widely employed by the City of Georgetown. A primary goal of the City’s GIS program is to make many of these mapping resources available to the public. The GIS department is now located in the GCAT building here.
