Geographic Information System
A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. A GIS helps us visualize, question, analyze, interpret, and understand data to reveal relationships, patterns, and trends.
GIS has become an integral tool at Kent County in supporting the delivery of services from property mapping, health, public safety, to the judicial process. The investment in these technologies has also afforded Kent County the ability to provide GIS tools to business and the public for general consumption.
