The primary role of the GIS Division, Geographic Information System, is to support the Light & Power and Water Divisions, as well as the Public Works Department, via computer maps and database information for their infrastructures. Other Town operations that are supported include Parks, Planning, Administration and Police.
GIS involves creating maps by computer and attaching attributes or information to features on the maps. For example, a water line is created on the map in the computer. The user can then click on that water line which will bring up all the attributes that belong to it, such as pipe size, pipe material, depth on the computer screen.
