Gilbert Digital went behind-the-scenes to learn about the Geographic Information System (GIS) software the town uses for mapping. GIS is used in every department of the town from planning and zoning, public works maintenance, and public safety to efficiently dispatch police and fire. GIS Administrator Jon Powell says that GIS, “…is not just a map,” like many people would think. It performs spatial and data analysis that can be used to save the town time and money.
