GIS: A Tool For Improving Community Livability
GIS software can help policy makers andstakeholders make better informed and more effective decisions by relating data with place. GIS can take an overwhelming amount of information -- tabular, spatial, or graphic -- and display it in a way that makes it meaningful to local government staff, policy makers and the public. By displaying information in layers -- each layer with a particular issue -- it is easier to understand how issues interrelate.
