Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Wayne County's GIS is an integrated program that serves as a coordinated effort between departments, municipalities and regionally. Its structure assists leaders with information needed to make decisions, create policy and mandate procedure. This information can be visualized, researched and analyzed for more in depth situational understanding. Through this understanding, the GIS creates time and money saving operations.
