What is GIS?
A Geographic Information System is a computerized system for managing large amounts of information and is capable of assembling, storing, manipulating, and displaying geographically referenced information, (e.g.) data identified according to their locations. Practitioners also consider the total GIS as including operating personnel and the data that is placed into the system. GIS technology can be used for database management, spatial analysis and modeling, scientific investigations, resource management, and development planning. For example, a GIS might allow emergency planners to easily calculate emergency response time in the event of a natural disaster, or, a GIS might be used to find wetlands that need protection from pollution.

About GIS in Santa Clarita

The GIS group creates and maintains a wide range of spatial data from zoning to bus routes to natural hazard areas. Access to accurate and current updated maps available is beneficial in assisting in property evaluation, parcel-related research, land-use planning, site selection and environmental management.
