GIS for Local Government
When it comes to local government, location is inherent in all data: people have residences, properties have boundaries; assets have proximities; and employees have worksites. Over 80% of all data stored by a local government contains a location component. By visualising and exploring the relationships within this data; and using the resulting discoveries to guide decision-making – you are effectively leveraging ‘location intelligence
Location intelligence is easily attained through utilising a Geographic Information System (GIS)
. The technology literally maps the geographic elements contained within an organisation’s data to expose patterns and relationships that may otherwise be hidden in a maze of numeric tables.
Local governments from across Australia rely on GIS technology every day. From managing assets and resources to informing policy and planning decisions, GIS provides an analytical vantage point that no other tool can.
