What is GIS?
GIS (Geographic Information Systems) is computer mapping system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of Geographical data. GIS helps you answer questions and solve problems by looking at your data visually in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared. Furthermore, GIS technology combines common database operations with unique visualization to allow for fast and efficient data query, analysis and management.
The Galesburg Sanitary District began its GIS project in 2000 and has steadily and consistently grown its inventory of data and information since then.
The GIS Department is responsible for management, maintenance and improvements of geographic data layers for all sanitary sewers and approximately 2/3 of the storm sewers within the city of Galesburg, Il. GIS helps increase the efficiency, reduce costs, improve coordination, and deliver precision and accountability throughout all departments within the District.
