Geographic Information Systems (GIS):
GIS lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns and trends related to positions on Earth's surface. By relating seemingly unrelated data, GIS can help individuals and organizations better understand spatial patterns and relationships.
The City of Sevierville is refining its approach in the implementation of our GIS software. We are currently working on various applications and project implementations that will change the way the organization uses and interprets data. In turn, this will change the way we are able to display, and make available, this data to the public. The goal of the City in its approach to enhancing our GIS capabilities are to create cost savings through greater efficiency, create better decision making, improve communication, keep better records, and better manage the City and its services through a geographic manner.
