What is GIS?
information system (GIS) is a computer-based tool for mapping and
analyzing things that exist and happen on the surface of the Earth.
GIS technology integrates common database operations such as query
and statistical analysis with unique visualization offered by maps.
These abilities distinguish GIS from other information systems and
make it valuable to a wide range of public organizations for explaining
events, predicting outcomes, and planning strategies. Mapmaking
and geographic analysis are not new, but a GIS performs these tasks
better and faster than conventional manual methods. Before GIS technology,
only a few people had the skills necessary to use geographic information
to help with decision making and problem solving.
of Plover's Geographical Information System began in the year of
1989, to better serve the water and sewer departments in the maintenance
of their water and sewer mains. Since its inception, the GIS has
expanded, and is now being used in all departments.
The GIS is
managed by the Village's GIS Manager. The GIS Manager position was
added in 1999, and is responsible for database administration, supervision
and training of Village staff, provides technical assistance in
GIS software and hardware, implements standards and procedures,
and provides data conversion when necessary. The GIS Department
