A geographic information system (GIS) lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends. GIS benefits organizations of all sizes and in almost every industry.
The City of Greenville's GIS department has been providing spatial data and analysis since 1983 and was one of the first municipalities in the country to implement GIS. Currently, the department maintains over 140 data layers for use by employees and citizens as well as robust galleries of interactive and printable maps.
