About Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

​​A map is the best and most efficient way to describe physical positions and relationships. For many organizations that use maps as part of their everyday decision making it is important that maps be automated and linked to other informational databases. The integrated product that has developed from linking maps with data is commonly referred to as a Geographic Information System (GIS). 

Our mandate is to develop, implement, operate, administer and promote the use of spatial information technologies within the County of Simcoe, its municipalities and its larger network of partners.
