GIS means "Geographic Information Systems"

Welcome to the Geo-Environmental Section's GIS Program
What is GIS?
A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a combination of computer software, hardware, data, and personnel designed to support the collection, manipulation, analysis, modeling, and display of spatially-related data.  Using GIS, layers of data can be linked to map features and queried to visually reveal relationships, patterns, and trends.  Given these capabilities, GIS can be seen as a powerful decision-making and planning tool in a variety of disciplines and organizations.
Geo-Environmental Section GIS Program
The Geo-Environmental Section's GIS Program in coordination with ODOT's GIS unit, provides coordination and technical support to project planning and delivery by managing GIS data layers crossing a wide range of environmental and asset management topics, by building tools and resources to help staff analyze and illustrate that data.
